New 2003 install on the domain can’t see the network

Long story short, a windows 2003 system died with a bad hard drive. Hard drive has been replaced and I am installing a fresh windows 2003 onto the system. Everything is updated and it joins the domain fine. The problem is I cannot see any other systems on our domain. I can do a stampy from my laptop and I see stampy just fine. From stampy, I get a not domain accessible error. The real task is getting some corporate antivirus loaded so I can try and become the parent antivirus server for the clients, but this is holding me up. Not sure if it is a windows firewall setting or exception, but this is just standard networking stuff. I haven't had this problem with any of the XP systems that I join to the domain, or even any of the other windows 2003 servers, but this one has some piece that is different, any ideas? Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I just setup a 2003 network and everything was fine…until someone turned on windows firewall on the server. I had the same problem. Turn it off.

    Hello, You say the server joins the domain fine? Can you see the server object from AD? Can you ping other systems on the network? Have you checked your IP config to verify that you have a network address and not an APIPA address? If no to any of these questions you may have a faulty NIC, a problem with the drop or bad port on the switch. I'd start with the basic network connectivity items first, then move deeper as needed. Keep us posted! Good luck!

    Yes, It has an IP, can ping systems, I see it in AD, all those things are good. We have the windows firewall automatically turned on via a GPO. It isn't as simple as turning it off in this case since it does provide some usefulness. I'd rather figure out why it could be blocking traffic and fix that part either one way or with an exception in the firewall. Thanks

    Hi Kevin - have you checked the Event Viewer on your new Win2k3 server to see if there's something in the System or Security Log that would tip you off to the problem?

    Hello, How is your network connected to the Internet? Are you using ICS to share the Internet connection to clients from a server? If so, you could configure the firewall options on the gateway server as this is te primary point of entry for the network. Then try shutting it off on internal servers and see if it resolves. Otherwise, you may have to experiment with exceptions. Good luck!

    I just loaded a laptop with windows 2003 and just service pack 1 without any of the updates and I was able to browse the network, like I would expect. Since time is precious right now, I will work on my real problem of the antivirus software. Once that is working and this laptop is not needed, I will update all the patches from windows update and see if everything still works. Thanks
