SBS 2008 AD DNS issue

I'm configuring SBS 2008 SP2 which is a single AD DNS to work with XPP SP3.  The XP gets event error 1053 and 1054 after login, and there are group policy issue can't be applied to XP.  XP gets dynamic ip correctly from DHCP of SBS, but Ipconfig/all doesn't show DNS and Default Gateway.  I'm unsure if there's problem with the DNS server settings.  Could anyone pls help?

On the SBS server check in the DHCP console under IPv4 and scope options is the DNS and Gateway (router) defined here?

riowgAuthor Commented:
They're not defined.  Why don't they automatically be ready once the DHCP scope is created?  Is it normal?

Glen KnightCommented:
You would normally see this if the wizards in the SBS Console haven't been run

I've defined the 006 DNS server and 003 Router in the DHCP scope option, and restart DHCP service, but XP login still can't find DNS server and Gateway?

Interesting, can you post IPCONFIG /all from one of the clients please and post the results.

And is 192.168.1.200 the SBS server?

when I type nslookup, the following error comes out.  Does it mean removing ipv6 can resolve the problem?  How can I keep ipv6 setting unchanged?

DNS request timed out.
    timeout was 2 seconds.
Default Server:  Unknown
Address:  ::1

riowgAuthor Commented:
the above nslookup command is typed in server, and the default server is supposed to be "abc.local".

msmamjiCommented:
It seems you have not configured a reverse lookup zone in the DNS that why you are getting DNS request time out in the nslookup result.

Create a reverse lookup zone for your subnet (192.168.1.0) and then add a PTR record for your DNS Server in the reverse lookup zone. That will take care of the nslookup issue. However, it is unrelated to your original issue.

For that, XP client will renew their leased IP at half the time of the lease. You lease time appears to be 8 Days. That would mean they would renew the lease at around 20th April.  XP client also renew their lease, when restarted. Restart one of the XP machines and see if that helps.

Shahid.

Verify on workstation it is set to obtain DNS server address automatically
if it is then
Make sure SBS is only DHCP server (is DHCP service running? Are clients appearing under Address Leases?
Also, wouldn't hurt to
Rerun Connect to the Internet Wizard on SBS 2008.
On workstation do an ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew then ipconfig /all and see if DNS shows up now.

Thanks all for the input.  I'll continue the SBS configuration next Monday.

msmamji:  Previously I've configured the reverse lookup zone for this case.

bitMASTERS: Previously DNS and DHCP servers are running as your mentions

Thanks all for the suggestions.  The problem is resolved after having disabled ipv6.

Disabling IPv6 on what?
0
Glen KnightCommented:
from your question I can only assume you have disabled IPv6 on the Small Business 2008 Server as the client you are talking about is Windows XP.

This is NOT a fix for any issue on an SBS2008 server and it WILL stop the Microsoft Exchange Transport service from working.

riowgAuthor Commented:
Disabled ipv6 on server.  I don't want to disable ipv6 too for keeping Exchange server running normally.  Some say disabling ipv6 works on running Exchange 2010 on server 2008, so I just give it a try.  Now the sbs2008 is running correctly.  

So I thought I should delete this question instead.

Glen KnightCommented:
Disabling on IPv6 SHOULD not be done, it WILL break SBS and EXCHANGE.

Windows 2008 and Exchange 2010 or 2007 is COMPLETELY different to Small Business Server 2008.

The comment of your reference mentioned that it's for migration from sbs 2003 to sbs 2008.

Hi there, is there anyone running sbs 2008 and exchange 2007 correctly without enabling ipv6?

The title of the article I linked to is: "Issues after disabling IPv6 on your NIC on SBS 2008"

The first paragraph says: "If you uncheck the IPv6 protocol from your network interface card on your Windows SBS 2008 server you may see the following issues after a reboot:"

Having supported SBS 2008 for a few years and come across this many times, disabling IPv6 on SBS2008 WILL cause problems.

Have you rebooted since the change?

I see.  Yes, have rebooted a few times.

Subsequent ipv6 problems can't be resolved yet in the server, but I would like to award points to the helpers in the case anyway.  Changes to the server need other new subject title of question.
