Network Connections Folder Empty / DNS Down / Network Down / RPC will not Start
Posted on 2006-11-19
I came into our office friday and our Dell PowerEdge 1800 was making a squeeling noise. I couldn't get it to stop the noise so i rebooted. The server would not shut down so i had to do a hard shutdown. After i examined a few things i noticed the DNS server would not start and there was a RPC error. After looking furthur into the problem i relized that all network connections on the server and all clients were missing. I can not add a new connection as the wizard runs and then nothing happens. I checked all NIC cards and uninstalled them and reinstalled them with no change. We have a laptop that is also on the wirless netowork and it was in sleep mode and still was affected. I asked a friend that does a lot on our server and he though it might be something with the GPO. I am at a loss of thought. Any help would be great.
Static IP from ISP
DNS server (Serving static and DHCP)
Two NIC cards in Box
Small network of four computers.
Clients are DHCP
I am a beginner and have someone coming to help Monday night.
If you can lead us in the right direction we would be appreciative.
