Windows 2008R2

Hi

I have two serves, server1 running SBS 2008 Stnd, server2 running Windows server 2008R2, they are at seperate sights.

I want W2k8r2 to join the domain but am having DNS resolution issues.

I am using Hamachi (logmein) as the software to create the VPN tunnel. I can browse all data files on server1 from server2.

I need server2 on the domain for users, permissions etc.

thanks

check your DNS settings are pointing at the remote site. Also if joining a domain add .local to the domain.

Is there more than one NIC enabled on the server trying to connect to the domain? If so disable all but one until joined.

I am not certain what complications the Hamachi VPN adds but normally you would have a site to site VPN with two routers such that you have

192.168.100.x <=> VPN <=> 192.168.200.x
With Hamachi you have
192.168.100.x <=>5.x.x.x<=> VPN <=> 5.x.x.x<=>192.168.200.x

It may be athat Hamachi is somehow interfering. You can ping so it doesn't seem to be a name resolution or routing issue.  It may be that the server has two NIC's a physical and a Hamachi Virtual.  Try connecting the Hamachi VPN, then under network adapters | IPv4 properties | Advanced | DNS | add the SBS as the DNS server as well as adding the domain suffix.

Hi Guys

Update on this issue, the server is a cloud based server running W2K8r2, the image was corrupt, an element required to create the VPN connection was not installed.

All resolved now.

Thanks for your assistance.
