    2003 Server UNC Problem

    Hey all,
    I've got a small network with a 2000 domain controller and a 2003 domain controller. Clients on the LAN can connect to the 2000 server using UNC, but when they try to connect to the 2003 server, they get a weird authentication error. When I VPN into the network, I can connect to both using UNC. Both servers are replicating fine, and all the DNS seems to be in tact.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Is the 2003 server behind a different firewall and do have PKI authority setup? If so you might be able to VPN in cause you have a certificate authority to do so through that firewall. Just a shot in the dark, it sounds like DNS maybe too.

    Hmm...not really sure what PKI authority is. The servers are behind the same firewall, however. How could PKI authority affect clients' abilities to connect to the server?

    What is the error they are getting, exactly and did you just add the 2003 server to the network and when you say replication you are talking active directory?

    It says that "<Server name> is inaccessible. The target account name entered is incorrect." Something along those lines. The 2003 server has been on the network for a while. I'm pretty sure adprep was run on the 2000 server. If it wasn't, I'd probably be having some more severe issues, no?

    For sure, I take it the 2003 server is not a member server and has been promoted and it belongs to the same domain. have you tried creating a dummy account on the 2003 server and tried logging in from one of the computers on the network?

    Yes, and it appears almost instantly on the 2000 server.

    Make sure the server names are different, it sounds like DNS though too. Was the name space setup differently when the 2003 was promoted?

    The servers definitely have different names...not so sure about the name space though. What do you mean?

    My guess dns

    It maybe that dns is resolving netbios to the same i.p or vicea versa. Not 100% just a quick-e in passing.

    Good luck
