Server Situation - How can I rejoin?
Posted on 2006-10-26
Approximately 3 weeks ago, I kind of inherited the IT Job at our Very Small Company, I had not had much time to document all the IP Addresses and DNS Addresses, I basically have what the IP Addresses are on Each Server. Then Last week the worst of the worst hit.
Me, thinking that our servers should stay up to date with Windows UPdate, downloaded and installed SP1, which crashed Two of our Servers.
One Database and One we used for our Mail to be filtered through.
By going through our Back ups, I was able to get the Database Server back up and running. I then took the Other Server out of the Filtering Loop, Restored it by re-installing Windows Server 2003 on it.
Now, Everything is running smoothly, but I have this one server that I took out of the loop and installed Windows Server 2003 on, I would like to get it back up on the Network.
Here's my situation.
What IP Address do I give it? I've given it the IP Address that it had written on the front of it, but it's saying that IP address is conflicting with another on the Server.
The second thing is I can't get this Server to join the Domain.
So, let's start from scratch. Say I have a Server that I Just installed Windows Server 2003, Where do I go from here?
Thank you ahead of time.
