Windows 2003 server set up a new dns active directory with a netopia router
Posted on 2008-09-29
I am having a dns issue. Set up a new windows 2003 server with Active Directory, Dns Server. I left the netopia router doing dhcp because it was causing too many issues. However, when my clients connect, they are getting the netopia router's internal ip address as the dns server address instead of my windows 2003 server. When I do an ipconfig on the client the client gets an internal ip adress, gateway is the netopia router. This is causing an issue with clients being able to connect to shared folders on the server as well as getting out to the internet. If I put the dns server in the client and assign a static ip everything works.
I have several users that take their laptops home and I cannot leave them with static ip addresses. I would like to get this working without having to assign an ip address. Also the users credentials are not getting to the workstation. I have users set up as administrators on the network and they cannot do anything on the client. Help!
