I have created a new domain with a win 2003 server DC acting as DNS, DHCP, and Print Server(which I am still working on the implementation of) Well one of my cleints is not pingable. I have him added in the AD and an A record in the DNS console, but in my network neighborhood on my server, that client does not have a plus by it for expansion. I am not able to get into that client either.
What steps can I take to check and see why this client isn;t on the same page as everyone else.
All of the clients ARE able to access the shared data files which are still located on one of the clients. Can that client remain a data share sever and still be client in the domain? The non-pingable client is not the data server though but it CAN access that shared data so it is networking somehow in some sense.

Ok any thoughts?
