Domain not accessable in Network Neighborhood

Discussion in 'DNS Server' started by Pat Gallacher, Oct 18, 2004.

  1. I have a brand new Active Directory run by three (3) Windows 2003 Enterprise
    Edition servers. This was NOT an NT domain upgrade or anything. Server1 is
    supposed to be the PDC of the domain, Pha, and the other two are BDC's.
    Server1 is the master browser. When viewing Network Neighborhood it can
    browse and see PC's in the domain. No other PC in the entire domain,
    including the other domain controllers, can see anything, however. We get
    the following pop-up:
    Pha is not accessable. You might not have permission to use this network
    resource. COntact the administrator of this server to find out if you have
    access permissions. Windows cannot find the network path. Verify that the
    network path is correct and the destinantion computer is not busy or turned
    off. If Windows still cannot find the network path, contact your newtowk
    administrator.

    Any thoughts? We also cannot get Windows 98 PC's to validate/logon to the
    domain since the PDC and BDC's lost power and crashed simultaneously last
    friday. Until then, everything was fine.
    Tahnk You

  2. In
    Bad NIC maybe, definitly not DNS, since DNS has nothing to do with Network
    Neighborhood.
    I'd recommend installing WINS anyway with Win98 clients, WINS is more
    reliable that NetBIOS broadcasts for populating Network Nieghborhood.
    On a side note, there is no such thing as a Win2k or Win2k3 BDC.
