HI

We have a server 2003 with domain controller and DNS Service with the following NIC configuration:

Domain controller: server.mydc.com
IP: 192.168.1.1
Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.254 (Router IP)
DNS1: 192.168.1.1
DNS2: EMPTY

and some Windows XP workstations with the following config:

IP: 192.168.1.15 (Example of one of the workstations)
Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.254 (Router IP)
DNS1: 192.168.1.1 (Server IP)
DNS2: 192.168.1.254 (Router IP)

I have two problems

1. If I ping to the server name I got an error because (I dont know why) is searching for another IP something like PING server.mydc.com [192.168.1.58]

2. After Starting a session takes alot of time to have internet and network connections enabled.

Thanks in advance

Your Active Directory domain members should only use your domain controller for DNS. Remove 192.168.1.254 as a DNS server and try again.

Thanks I´ll try this tomorrow....
In case I didn´t have a DNS Server, how should be configured DNS in workstations?

If you didn't have a DNS server, you wouldn't have Active Directory, and you might not have the problem. You should also check the DNS records and make sure that everything looks correct; nothing extra with wrong IPs and nothing missing.

I have checked the DNS console and there was some configurations pointing to the other iP, I changed it for the new one
