Select Users or Groups Dialog - From this location Issue
Posted on 2006-05-19
I have 2 Virtual Machines (VMWare) both with Windows 2003 Standard. One is a Domain Controller. The other is not a Domain Controller (Database and Application Server) but is on the Domain of the first server. Most of the time on the non-DC server, when I go to configure security at the folder level or in IIS Manager (Permissions) or in Sharepoint, the "Select Users or Groups" dialog box, "From this location" field shows the local host name only. Sometimes it will show the Domain Name, but its rare and then I usually get a "Server is not operational" error message if I try to go to the Advanced tab to search for a user or group to add.
I am logged into the non-DC server as a Domain Admin when I try to do this.
The DC seems to be running ok. Is there a configuration setting I am missing in Active Directory or could it be a VMWare issue?
Thanks in advance,
