windows 2008 active directory OU issues
Posted on 2011-09-29
we have a windows 2008 R2 std server that has replaced a single W2003 Std server as the only gc server on a single domain, the old w2003 server will at some point have dcpromo run on it and switched off. All data and applications are now working on the new server fine. The process of adding the new server, tranfering GC roles all went as expected.
However, if a PC is now added (after being removed during diagnosis) to the domain (same domain name as before) the computer shows up in the standard "computers" OU list withing AD, not within the "domain name" OU that was created in AD and transfered accross from the old server.
these computers are also experiencing network connection issues (thats why they were removed and re-added), that are intermitent. Like not connectimg to shares, and most supprisingly one of them creates a "temp" local user profile everytime it boots?
I tried removing the few Win7 PCs and re-adding but they still have issues, there are no group policy rules added that i am aware of to the domain OU that would make this happen?
all win xp pcs are working fine, although i have not removed any and readded?
