w2k3 dns suffix

Hello,

I´m migrating a w2k3 server to existing domain. I found out a problem in dns and this is causing some problems in replications and contacting domain controller. So I haven´t been able to finnish my migration project.

I checked my dns setting and found out that the server has two suffix in stead of one which is needed (hast.fi right one, steveco.fi wrong) ?

In new servers primary dns (when i check ipconfig /all) is the wrong one (steveco.fi) and connection specific is the right one (hast.fi)? When I check from system properties and computer name I can see that the right domain is in member of field but when I check full computer name, the wrong domain suffix is there (steveco.fi). When I push this more button, there i can see primary suffix of this computer is the right one (hast.fi)???
This is pretty strange because I have always used this hast.fi when installing this server, so don´t have any idea where this steveco.fi domain suffix comes from !

Is it set to get an IP from DHCP, has it picked it up from your DHCP scope options?

I mean I don´t have any DHCP servers running and all the ip:s are manually entered!

Ok, fiar enough. So is it a member of an old domain at the moment or into a workgroup pre-migration?  Where does this other suffix come into it, is it some random thing or your old domain's DNS name?

can you pst ipconfig /all fro us to have a look at please.

thanks

Steve

Here comes ipconfig. This steveco.fi is old domain which was used here many years ago, but not anymore. We do have one server under steveco.fi domain were we have contact but that is done with one row in dns.  So I don´t any idea where this steveco.fi suffix has come into this new server.

Have you looked in the DNS tab under advanced in tpcip properties for your LAN card.  It shows here two dns suffixes, sounds like it is getting one from the "append these dns suffixes in order" entry.

I don´t have anything about steveco.fi there. I took away the hast.fi from field: dns suffix from this connection and now ipconfig looks like this... Where is this steveco.fi coming from ????

You could try dumping out the config. with netsh or searching registry with regedit for that domain name I suppose.

netsh dump | find /i "steveco.fi" > netsh.txt
start netsh.txt

Is this a domain member or not, if so which domain shows up... or is it in a workgroup?

I search through registry and I found from HKLM/software/policies/microsoft/dnsclient
NV primaryDNSsuffix -> steveco.fi
primaryDNSsuffix -> steveco.fi
I just wonder how have those been put there, I have always used this hast.fi suffix when configuring this server ?

I tried this netsh also but I got error from missing dll -file (framedyn.dll)

Steve KnightIT ConsultancyCommented:
Don't worry about that error, it should still dump most of the stuff into a text file.... you might just want to amend those entries in the registry -- If you have no DHCP getting in the way then it must have been put in manually at some point.  Why I don't know though, sorry!
