Checking DNS

I have some computers that when I log into them their domain look different than what it shows…
I had a request to add a user to local administrator in windows servers that are members of domain  abc.com
so, through RDP I type computer1.abc.com then I log into the computer, when I go to add a user to Administrators group then on that window the location shows the localhost name, then I click browse and all I see is XYZ.com, I do not see the abc.com at all.

I am not sure why this is happening?

Thanks

Hi,

This could be because you have two domains abco.com and xyz.com and trunst relationships are configured between these domains. Please go to Control Panel -> System and see Full Computer Name and Domain fields. This will show you to which domain computer1 is added.

While adding member to local administrators, on the select users windows, you could click on Locations button to show up other domains which have trust relationships and select users from that domain.

our domain is MST.corp it has trust with abc.com and XYZ.com
the trust type is Forest and transitive.

I see the MST.corp too...but no abc.com which is weird...since the computer I remoted to through RDP  has a name space computer1.abc.com

Please check System Log on computer1.abc.com for any error communicating to the domain abc.com.

Please verify DNS Server List configured on computer1 has Domain Controllers for abc.com domain.
