Question about Operating Systems

1 Answer

Mac 10.4 - one machine on the network started getting redirected from common websites to a domain parking site. Our Mac dealer told me to delete the dns nos. in network prefs and useĀ 208.67.222.222, 208.67.220.220 It worked - does this mean I don't need to mess with the hosts file (scary!) ? Have I been hacked/attacked?

The DNS server has apparently been hacked - using different numbrs solved the problem, my hosts file is fine, my machine is fine.

It says"This domain is blocked. Site


In your workplace (or wherever you are located) the Facebook URL is blocked and cannot be viewed there. It is common practice for many employers to block sites such as this and other social networking sites.

If this is their policy then I'm afraid there may not be much you can do.

I GET MESSAGE"sid POOL EXHUST" when i try add any object TO AD


You have to seize the RID master for you domain, appears to be removed from network or can't be contacted, you can use the next commands in order to get the actual (MYSERVER should be replaced by the name of you server

C:\WINDOWS>ntdsutil
roles
connections
connect to server MYSERVER
q
Select operation target

then you get the next response:

Server "MYSERVER" knows about 5 roles
Schema - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MYSERVER,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=MYDOMAIN,DC=net
Domain - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MYSERVER,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=MYDOMAIN,DC=net
PDC - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MYSERVER,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=MYDOMAIN,DC=net
RID - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MYSERVER,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=MYDOMAIN,DC=net
Infrastructure - CN=NTDS Settings,CN=MYSERVER,CN=Servers,CN=Default-First-Site-Name,CN=Sites,CN=Configuration,DC=MYDOMAIN,DC=net
select operation target:

the interested server is RID - this must be the name of a actual server, if this server is permanently down the you need seize the rol, use the next guide:

if the server is an actual server you must review the event log in this server in order to get more clues of the error.

XP Cant connect to internet


First, I would recommend getting a router.
That aside I believe your issue may lie with your internet browser. Do you use Internet Explorer?  Try another browser such as Google Chrome or Firefox and see if that helps.
If that does not work, then try setting up your home network once more.

I dont know what is domain


A Microsoft Windows Active Directory Domain is a directory service for a computer network. Think of it like a phonebook for all your companies computers, users, and printers to name a few. Active Directory provides a central authentication point for all users/computers in the building and controls network policies. This makes network management for multiple computers and users MUCH easier.

For more information, see Microsoft's Official Active Directory site.

How to configure domain


You need to install and run IIS or Apache...they are both web server programs. It doesn't really matter which you use, more of a user preference.

In my case I like to use IIS with Server 2003. Below is a link that is a full guide for setting up your server to host a website. it is step by step and includes pictures along the way. It should have you running in no time!

Network printer problem


1. How are these two computers networked? Through a router, or by a crossover cable?

2. Is the network workgroup the same on both computers?

3. Have you tried turning off any firewalls or rerunning their workgroup setup?

4. Remember, to share the printer the host computer must be on. Is it?

5. Did you right click on that printer and choose share this on the network? Also: the lack of a login prompt is probably the problem. To see,

First timer installing a Server network


Well i'm just going to start where i would start. First off, how do your machines on the network get their IP? DHCP?

Is the first listed DNS server the AD server? 192.168.1.1?

Also make sure your using case sensitive domain information when your trying to connect. It is rare but i have had that be my trouble.

I have remote software available and would love to help you fix this hands on if possible. I live for network problems ;)
