Troubleshooting Server 2003 and Client installation
Posted on 2006-06-21
I am using Netgears DG834PN Wireless Router with my server and client, each computer has a USB adapter for Wireless connectivity and I am using a KVM switch to switch between the two computers.
I have just installed Server 2003 as per the Step by Step Deployment in Microsoft TechNet. I have completed both Part 1 and 2 (Workstation) and have duplicated all the training material to the letter using the supplied names for computer, domain and users etc.
I successfully joined the client to the domain in System properties and both server and client are successfully connected to the router network yet after I restart I am unable to log on to the domain from the client computer I have tried as both administrator and client. The error message states that I cannot log on as the domain is not available even though the server is running and the domain is active in Active Directory.
I would appreciate some advice on what to do next.
