    I have recently installed windows 2000 server with active
    directory without configuring the DNS as we use external
    dns server to browse internet.

    When i tried conencting win 2000 workstations to the
    domain a couple of machines connected successfully and the
    rest are not connecting , i get error "The Network Path
    was Not Found"

    I am not sure what i am doing wrong.
    I tested with net user //computername
    user:[email protected] and the connection is successful

    If i add workstation to a workgroup also its not working.
    I have netbui over TCP enables and the service for
    TCP/Netbui running
    Please help me as i am struck

    AD MUST have a DNS server set up for the AD domain. Your ISP's DNS server
    will not work.

    Set up DNS on the AD DC.
    Point the AD DNS server to itself for DNS in the properties of TCP/IP.
    Point all AD clients to the AD DNS server ONLY.
    For Internet access set up your AD DNS server to forward requests and list
    your ISP's DNS server as the forwarder.

  3. You can't do that. All client must use the AD DNS on the DC. The ISP's DNS
    IP# goes in the Forwarder's list in your AD DNS.
