Can't authenticate properly on domain when connected to 2 physical wired networks

Hi Experts,

I have a domain workstation that is connected to a Windows Active Directory network (172.x.x.x) and another local network (192.x.x.x).

In order to successfully authenticate on the domain, I'm always forced to disable/disconnect the 192 network connection before I am able to.

I tried the following measures, but met with no success.

1.  Using Network Connection properties, I manually set the metric values of the 172 network to 1 and the 192 network to 2.

2.  I tried setting up a static route for the possible subnets where domain controllers are located to go through the 172 network.

3.  I tried deleting the default route for 192 network.

How can I configure the networks so that they both stay active and I'm able to use the domain services normally?

One example of malfunction is that when trying to add a domain user using the "control userpasswords2" applet, I get an error that a trust relationship with the domain failed.  It seems that any non-cached domain credentials cannot be verified.

Thanks in advance!

Try setting your "Automatic metric" of your network adaptor that is connected to your active directory network to 1 (untick the box next to automatic metric). The automatic metric setting is located under TCP/IP Properties of your network Adapter > Advanced.. button. This will force all requests to go through that adapter first before it will look at the other adapter.

Open "Network Connection" > Advanced>Acvanced Settings

Make sure  you 172.xxx is the first in the binding order. .
