Cannot see other subnets on domain after power failure
Posted on 2009-02-13
I am not sure if this is a DNS issue,firewall or something else.
I am running Win 2k3 in a mixed 2000/2003 envt. There was a power failure at my job yesterday. I was able to get the servers shutdown before the power ran out on the UPS.
Prior to the power failure we were having a problem wiith our ISP. AT&T said there was a problem with one of their routers and they were working on it. We also have a point to point T-1 between 3 locations. We were all able to access resoures between the 3 locations but nothing else including the internet.
The power came back on last night so I came back in to power on the servers, etc. Everything powered on but I started noticing some problems. DNS was not working. I was getting Event ID 4013, 1054, 1053, 53258, among others.
After doing some research i ended up disabling the NIC in the DC and configuring the 2nd NIC with the same ip. That didn't seem to do anything so I went back to the original. That seemed to resolve my problem....at least part of it. Now DNS is running, we can get to the internet and everything else on our subnet. However, now i see that i cannot ping or browse to other subnets.
Please help...i'm starting to fall asleep on my keyboard! :)
