Microsoft Server 2003- can't ping domain controller
Posted on 2009-12-20
I've just installed server 2003. I am trying to add a computer to the domain. I went through the steps of adding a user and adding a computer on the server. On the client machine- I right click on my computer, properties, computer name, then I click on change (to change computer name or join a domain.) where it says member of, I entered my domain name.... newserver.local. Then it gives me error message A domain Controller for the domain Newserver.local could not be contacted.
So before I moved forward I pinged both machines to make sure there was no network issue. Client is able to ping server successfully. Server cannot ping the client. From the admin screen of the router I can see both nodes recognized and both have ip addresses. Server is able to access the www.
I'm stuck. Can someone please help!!!
