Win 2k3 member server with SBS 2k3

    This is probably an oversight on my part;
    I've added a Win2k3 server to my network with SBS 2k3 as the PDC. Installed
    licences as prescribed. The member server can browse the rest of the network,
    copy/tranfer files etc. The SBS box and my clients can see the member server
    on network BUT cannot access the shares. Looks like a permissions issue but
    as the member server is logging on to the network successfully not sure why
    this would be.

    TIA

  2. This bit worries me "Installed licences as prescribed". How have you
    installed what licenses?

    You are aware that additional servers in an SBS2003 domain consume 1 device
    type CAL and require NO ADDITIONAL licensing, yes?

    If you are using the 2nd server as a TS you require TS licensing.

    Did you use the /connectcomputer process to add the server to the domain?

    "Installed licences as prescribed" means I set the licence number in Admin
    tools of the member to the same as the SBS box.

    Yes I'm aware of the consumption SBS CALs

    I'm not using the member for TS, it's going to be a webserver.

    The SBS box found the member server before i ran /connectcomputer, ran it
    anyway but didn't alter the result.

  4. OK, sounds like you joined the domain during the installation process, bad
    move.

    I'd swing it back to a workgroup, delete the machine from AD, create a new
    account for it, join using /connectcomputer.

    There is some _slight_ chance it's AD/IP related, the output of 'ipconfig
    /all > c:\ipconfig.txt' from a command line _may_ be of value.

    Ok,
    Tried that - same result. When I try to browse to share on the member server
    I get the error "\\maxit-webserver is not accessible. You might not have
    permission..." (I'm trying to access using the domain Administrator account)
    content of ipconfig.txt:

    The one way trafficissue here is quite frustrating and confusing.

    This looks like a non-standard network schema, depending on if your SBS box
    is single or multi homed. (One or two NICs)

    What IP is your SBS box?

    I have considered that this might be the issue or at least contributing to
    the confusion. I will change that and see if it has an effect. The SBS box is
    multihomed, internal IP is 192.168.11.1 & external is 10.0.0.5. This
    configuration is slightly non-standard in that I'm running a wireless AP that
    has been providing DHCP for the clients on the network -IP 192.168.11.10. Is
    it a better idea to put the member server in a DMZ? If so, how do I set it up
    so that I can publish websites to it? (I haven't done this before)

    Thanks to you both for your input. Reconfiguring DHCP and the Access Point
    seems to have made the difference.

    Cheers
