Windows 8.1 on Domain - Network Awareness Issue
Posted on 2013-11-06
I am now testing Windows Pro 8.1 on our 2008R2 AD Network and have hit a snag with Network Awareness.
Here is how the network looks now.
AD Server - 192.168.10.1 (resolves to itself for DNS)
Desktop - 192.168.10.60 (DNS points to 192.168.10.1 - Gateway 192.168.10.254)
Cisco ASA Firewall (GW) - 192.168.10.254
I am having issues with 8.1 discovering the correct domain network. Half the time it's unidentifiable, sometimes it will detect correctly and show the domain network.
Now if i delete the route (route delete 0.0.0.0) it instantly works, if i point the GW to the AD server it also immediately works but then i lose internet connectivity for obvious reasons with both methods.
It also takes some time to make up it's mind and from what i read that part is a common problem.
Any help much appreciated.
