I recently had a new job in the it department at some company, so I started to check what the previous administrator did of configuration for a Microsoft windows 2003 based network, I’ll explain a bit about it :
· We have one forest:
· two domains:
1- [strong]world.com ???????[/strong]
The world.com and the world.com are in the same physical location, Tokyo.world.com is in other physical location.
· The servers are:
Jon.world.com = 192.168.5.1
Mic.world.com = 192.168.5.2
Chan.tokyo.world.com = 192.168.180.1
Jon.world.com = root + DNS + DC + GC
Mic.world.com = file server
Chan.tokyo.world.com = DNS + DC + GC
So first in world.com I checked the DNS by using nslookup on jon.world.com here are the result :
Forward lookup zones are fine, but the reverse lookup zone are missing all the subnets in the world.com location, except for the subnet of the servers which is 192.168.5.X
I open dns console on chan.tokyo.world.com:
Forward lookup zones are fine, and the reverse lookup zone contain all the subnets in the Tokyo domain.
at the clients side is the following:
When I press Ctrl+alt+Del at the logon screen window, and checked the logon to, I see two domains ( [strong][em]London[/em][/strong] , tokyo), when I asked a user in the location where world.com is located what is London, he told that this is the domain name that they logon to since a long time, and its working fine, he logged on successfully .
I checked the TCP/IP settings of the net adapter in the DNS suffix written world.com
But in the Tokyo domain the dns suffix at the clients side is Tokyo.world.com
Well the root is world.com but the domain in it should be London.world.com and the server name is jon.london.world.com?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Am not sure if I understood the previous conf, could any body expalin plain text, help plz.
