Microsoft Server Experts… Again…
some of you kind folk may remember me posting last week about the dying server, well it died on Wednesday.
I have sort of got us back up and running as most of the files were on the file server not the domain controller.
there is one mad problem i cant fix though…
All windows 7 pc’s when you click on their shared drive shortcuts pop up with a username and password box, they put their details in and they can connect ‘like before’..
however ALL windows XP pc’s cannot connect and they come up with the old classic warning.. “connect connect to server”
years ago i remember is was something to do with netbios not working as it cant authenticate with the ‘dead’ domain controller?
sorry if above is garbled, not much sleep.
any pointers most welcome!Posted 4 years ago
tired that but sadly doesnt work, i noticed when i look in the network tree i can see our domain, double click it and it only brings up the pc’S (WIN7 & XP) that have the above static settings.
it also does not show up the server, which is still set as DHCP so does not have the above ip settings.
two stupid ideas…
give the file server the same ip settings as above
plug the server directly into the bt hub which in turn is plugged into the main switch.
think im peeing in the wind here 🙁Posted 4 years ago
