Adding a Suffix to a Single label SBS2003 Single server Domain.
Posted on 2006-11-26
I took over an office running SBS2003. Flat simple LAN, 15 nodes.
The Domain is Single Label (servername.domain) no suffix.
WS have Server as DNS server and Login, file and Print services are okay.
But Group Policy, and Domain functions fail.
(Workstations load up the Event viewer with Group Policy Failures.)
I am prepared to re-install server, but can I use Client Host Files, static IP's
and manual server side DNS entries to resolve this?
Or, can I go to the server name panel, click on change, and just add a suffix like .local?
I'm afraid I really need to re-install SBS 2003 svr.
