In relation to some previous post I would like to ask another question. On my Windows 2000 server I think i have found a DNS issue. The unsual part about I am able to tracert route the server by name and ip address. When I enter nslookup it finds the IP address but address unknown.

The main server is an SBS 2003 standard edition which DNS is working properly and is SERVERSYS.ourdomain.com.au. The windows 2000 server states in the network identification window it shows SERVERSYS1. with NO DNS SUFFIX and our domain connect.

When the DCPROMO was completed on the 2000 server there was no issues with the server joining as a BDC.

What do I need to do to fix this issue

Did you use the connectcomputer wizard to join this server to the domain?
That is the easiest way to have all tasks done for you.
In server management console>computers>add server,
Than run http://your sbs server name/connectcomputer.
Join a workgroup with the win 2000k server before doing this.
Hope that helps,
Olaf

Olaf,

I did the DCPROMO first and then the connect computer. Would this cause a major issue with the DNS setup.

Is the SBS 2003 a Domain Controller? and Are you trying to connect the SERVERSYS and make it a Additional Domain Controller? Are you saying that you did DCPROMO of SERVERSYS outside the network and then you connected to network after that? You can't do that, you have do the DCPROMO while connected to the Network. How's the DNS on the SBS 2003? Standard Primary or AD Integrated?
Give more information, then we can help you out.

Shane,
You need to join the domain first using the connect computer wizard.
I would suggest  to run DC Promo again and stop server 2 of being a DC, Than join a workgroup again on server2 (and remove DNS if you have it running) run ipconfig/flushdns at the cmd prompt and restart.
Create a new server account on the SBS server and run connectcomputer on server2.

Once properly joined: Reinstall DNS if required and run dcpromo again on server 2 and choose the second  option: additional DC.
Hope that helps
