I just set up a sbs network and am unable to ping the server. I cannot connect the client computer either.
The network topology is:
ISP provides a dynamic address-->connected to a home router running DHCP-->connected to a router running static addresses-->SBS2003 server, and clients assigned static addresses.
When I ping the SBS server by name, ping sbslab2010.local, it returns the address of the router(192.168.1.6).
I am unable to connect the computer using http://sbs03lab/connectcomputer
I AM able to get into the connect wizard and assign user and computer if i use http://10.0.0.6/connectcomputer
, but I get an error message after I press "Finish"
addresses on the network are:
192.168.x.x for first router and its DHCP clients
10.0.0.x for second router and with its SBS clients
The SBS server is configured as DNS host, but is manually assign addresses to the adapters of each client on the 10.0.0.x network. I also point the client and the SBS server to the router as the default gateway.
Should I set the SBS server as the DHCP host? Should I set the SBS server as the Default gateway? Those would be my next steps, but I post here in case the problem is something else.
