I have installed a new Server and have all the software loaded. I also have 14 clients to link with this server. The problem I am having is linking the clients to the server. I first tried manually adding the domain that is on the server to Client1 which is said welcome to DOMAIN.local this didnt seem to work as I couldnt seem to get access and even tried to do the remote add (http://SERVER/ConnectComputer
) with this which I discovered didnt work as it said I didnt have permissions. I removed the domain and added it to just a generic workgroup called WORKGROUP. I removed the client name from the server list (I had added it manually to the server thinking if its name was there and the client was on the domain they would read each other WRONG!!!!!) I removed it and reset both the client and hte server and then redid the server's IP settings and DNS. I found some other information I thought would be helpful before creating my own help post. If I start from scratch how do I add a client to my server. I need help with it all. I know this is a lot to ask for and I am not computer stupid at all but I am server stupid.
Please help we are going to be setting our own DNS and Static IP's so any suggestions would be amazing. We are also using a 3com router Model #3C16475CS it is a baseline switch 2226 plus. I am getting quite frustrated and am hoping someone can nudge me in the right direction. Once I get 1 I know that I can get the rest.
