Remote desktop to a server on a sub-domain


I set up a server on my company's primary domain and took the server to a remote office where I connected it to the sub-domain there.  I left it as a member of the primary domain and I changed the IP address to a static ID on the sub-domain.

Unfortunately, I cannot remote desktop to it.  However, i was able to connect when it was a member of the primary domain.  Any ideas?

- It must remain on the primary domain as we are using it as an auditing machine.  We'll be performing a domain integration of the sub-domains soon so it won't be a problem then.

Check your DNS and whether or not you can ping.

Also check routes via cmd, route print and tracert to identify where the connection is faltering. (you could test by installing a 3rd party like VNC)

Finally check roles/permissions on the server itself to ensure your account has the permission to access remotely.
check route from sub-domain to primary domain usinig
start > run > cmd > tracert ip of primary domain.

You were right... DNS was set to the wrong address.  Thanks
