I am attempting to add a Windows 7 PC to a SBS 2003 remotely via LogMeIn. The SBS server resides at 192.168.0.100 The attempt fails because the Windows 7 box gets its DNS from 192.168.0.254 & that DNS server apparently does not have a domain service record for the SBS server.
Doing research I found an article that stated the Win 7 box should use the SBS servers IP address ONLY for DNS, no secondary DNS address, in order to domain join.
I changed the DNS address on the Win 7 box to 192.168.0.100, rebooted the Win 7 box & promptly lost connectivity to the Win 7 box until this morning when the user came into the office & I talked him through setting the DNS to 192.168.0.254 which gave back connectivity via LogMeIn.
Any ideas on how to connect this PC to the SBS server domain?
I am using connectcomputer option is there another way to join a PC to SBS 2003?
