Re: win server 2003 enterprise

While configuring DNS server it will be under workgroup unless u make a member of the Domain. Check whether the DNS server made a member to DC. Check even the pref DNS server ip is similar as in case of a client.

Re: win server 2003 enterprise

You need to ensure your DNS server is the first in the workstation's DNS list.

Does this help?

We Are Using Windows 2003 Server,But We Are Not Able To Access Server From Win XP & Win 98 Clients & Also We Are Not Able To Access Clients From Win 2003 Server. Please Help.

You must be on same domain/workgroup to see it and the computers should have an account on the server.
If not you MUST have a user account you are using on the server.
You can try to connect using the IP address of the server as such:
Go to then type \\Serverip\c$ it should then ask for credentials
If not then your server is not on the network properly and you should contact a consultant in your area to configure the server

Is there a running Domain Controller present? If so DNS info is often stored in Active Directory (A.D. Inegrated DNS Zone).  If this is the case you can just connect a server to the network, join the domian (verify DNS settings in TCI/IP config is pointing to Domain Controller) and then installm DNS from Add/Remove windows components.  Zone data should replicate from AD to new DNS server, to verify open DNS console and look for resource records relevent to the domain.

Features of active directory

Active Directory think of it has management system for all network LAN PCs in your domain. You can add users to certain enterprise groups, you can disable accounts, push and pull software application better then you can in SMS domain. I use to to clone user accounts or create new user groups. Very easy to learn. To install on Server requires a domain, DNS. If you're using Windows Server 2003 and setup the server to manage active directory all the options for the installation process will appear for installation. There are a lot of info online and in books if you need more info. There are training classing offer at MS Solutions Centers.

Difference between DNS and WINS

WINS is Windows Internet Naming Service, a system that determines the IP address associated with a particular network computer. This is called name resolution. WINS supports network client and server computers running Windowsand can provide name resolution for other computers with specialarrangements. Determining the IP address for a computer is a complexprocess when DHCPservers assign IP addresses dynamically. For example, it is possiblefor DHCP to assign a different IP address to a client each time themachine logs on to the network.


DNS, a.k.a Domain Name System is a database system thattranslates a computer's fully qualified domain name into anIP address.Networked computers use IP addresses to locate and connect to eachother, but IP addresses can be difficult for people to remember. Forexample, on the web, it's much easier to remember the domain than it is to remember its correspondingIP address ( DNS allows you to connect to anothernetworked computer or remote service by using its user-friendly domainname rather than its numerical IP address. Conversely, Reverse DNS(rDNS) translates an IP address into a domain name.

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?

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 ;)
