Unable to resolve domain UNC path on Domain Controllers
Posted on 2011-10-31
This one should be worth double the points for all the trouble it is causing us.
IOur domain is say city.company.com. PDC emulator in domain is running 2003 and there are two domain controllers running 2000.
1. On 2000 domain controllers we cannot resolve UNC \\city.company.com but it can be resolved (points to SYSVOL NETLOGON etc) on the 2003 domain controllers. It can also be resolved form PCs - and all have the same network settings?
2. Also, we used to be able to resolve the "domain" share of \\company and it would open up and display SYSVOL etc. Now it can only be resolved by PCs - no domain controllers?
I've checked DNS and everything seems to be where it is supposed to be so I'm completely stumped on this one. When I do an NS Lookup city.company.com I get back the IP addreses for all my domain controllers just like I'm supposed to. but open up explore.exe and type in \\city.company.com and I get nothing.
