Domain Name missing under Network and Sharing Center

Posted on 2012-08-17

I've got an odd issue on our XenApp 6.5 farm running Windows 2008 R2.

Randomly the servers, under Network and Sharing Center, will stop recognizing they are in the domain. XenApp still works fine, so does network authentication but our firewall rules are not being properly applied.

It happens randomly on all of our servers and a reboot resolves the issue.

I've added screen shots from two different servers, both on the same farm and domain.

Any ideas?

    This is not related with domain membership as this is only identification of network card profile assignment (NLA). Servers are still in a domain even if NIC is showing another profile

    Check that blog's article and go bottom to GPO policy path, implement that to your "domain"

    issue should disappear

    Another option is to deactivate all firewall's profiles on servers
