    Before I start adding computers to AD do I still need to turn on Network
    Discovery?

  2. Hello Eric,

    I assume it's a Vista machine? Then check this all:
    -Network Discovery has to be enabled
    -You must have a Domain DNS server as primary on the NIC settings, NO internet
    DNS servers
    -Use the FQDN of the domain to join, like mycompany.com
    -The time difference between vista & domain must be < 5 mn
    -File Sharing has to be enabled

    Best regards

    It's a Win2008 DataCenter (AD DS, and I do have it connected to the
    internet, during install it did ask me if I wanted/should create it a a
    Delagate, but I didn't, This is my primary Master, the way I can remove it
    from the internet is to change the Gateway IP or do I have to reinstall AD
    DS?)..., and I will be adding a XP Pro desktop (software Development) and a
    Win2000 Labtop.

  4. Hello Eric,

    On the DC you can use the default settings to connect the clients to the
    domain. For the ip configuration please post an unedited ipconfig /all. You
    have to use an ip from a private ip range not from the public internal in
    the domain. Also clients have to use only domain internal ip's and also DNS
    server. On the DC/DNS server you have to setup forwarders to the ISP's DNS
    server, so all clients in the domain have internet access if needed.

    Best regards

    Is there a Webcast and/or Virtual Lab you can link me to that would show how
    to setup a small AD DS, Adding Desktop, etc... server?

    Thanks Weber!...

    while I got you here, I tried to add my WinXP Pro to my domain and I get the
    access is denied.

    Win2008 Data Center NIC is configured:
    IPv4
    IP 192.168.0.102
    subnet 255..............
    D Gateway 192.168.0.1 (My Dynex Router to a Clear Wire Hub
    for the internet)
    Perf DNS Server 127.0.0.1

    WinXP Pro NIC is configured:
    IP 192.168.0.101
    subnet 255..............
    D Gatway 19.168.0.1
    Perf DNS Sever 192.168.0.1

    I know this is wrong, but could you reconfigure this to how is should look?
    I would appreciate it..
