Difference between Server 2003 Standard and Enterprise?

I have noticed that when joining server 2003 standard domain / or enterprise
domain. I have noticed that you have to type the full domain name for
enterprise edition e.g. smallbusiness.local in on the client pc's whereas
when you are joining in a standard environment you only have to type e.g.
smallbusiness (without having to put .local or .com at the end)

If someone has noticed this and you know why enterprise seems to want a full
domain name rather than standard edition will you please let us know because
i am looking all over the internet to try and find why they seem to work
slightly differently in that area.

Re: Difference between Server 2003 Standard and Enterprise?

Hello Carl,

That has nothing to do with the server version, we run STD and EE and don't
have that.

Choosing the FQDN (domain.com) or the NetBIOS name (domain) depends on your
DNS, WINS setup and NetBIOS configuration. Make sure the "TCP/IP NetBIOS
Helper" service is running on the client machines and set to automatic.

On the DC's run diagnostic tools dcdiag /v, netdiag /v and repadmin /showrepl(if
more then one DC exist) and post the output here. Also from dnslint /ad /s
"ipaddress DC"

For the first 3 commands you have to install the support\tools\suptools.msi
from the 2000/2003 installation disk on the DC, dnslint you can download
here (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321045)

Best regards

Meinolf Weber

I believe you need Enterprise edition to do Microsoft CLUSTERING.

Is NetBIOS disabled on the enterprise version you're using that you need to use the FQDN? That would be the only thing I can think of causing this. Or even the firewall on the client side.

And as Meinolf said, operating system version has NOTHING to do with this.
