    Hi all, just playing about on server 2003. Just installed AD using the wizard. It assigned the domain controller as 192.168.0.3 but I don't understand why the scope starts at .10? Does that mean that any address untill 10 will need to be assigned manually as a static address. And any address after 10 will be done automatically by the dhcp server that resides on the domain controller?

    Regards,
    Dave

    There are other things (other servers, gateways etc) which might require/benefit from a static IP. I assume they reserve the first 10 for this purpose.

    hi dave,

    yes anything within the scope is dealt with by dhcp. the gap between .3 and .10 is just to allow for some room for other devices which may need a static address such as more servers, switches etc.

    Didnt want to start a new thread up, but I'm having problems joining a domain from a windows xp pro machine.

    The domain name is smallbusiness.local running on server 2003.
    I have created dhcp,dns,active directory using the wizard and all seems fine.
    The clients DNS settings point to the domain controllers and it has a static IP of 192.168.0.3
    The domain controller has a static IP of 192.168.0.2.

    When joining it just says that it cannot find the domain controller?

    Hope someone can help,

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Make sure that your DHCP scope is valid (and active!) and that your client is obtaining it's IP address automatically.

    Manually change the network adapter settings on the client to point to the server's IP address for it's default gateway (192.168.0.2).

    Change the DHCP options on the server to automatically configure a DNS server with the server's IP address (again 192.168.0.2) and that your client is obtaining it's DNS auto too.

    Hope this helps.

    Right, My mistake the domain controllers IP is 192.168.0.3
    I have changed the dhcp scope to 192.168.0.4 - 192.168.0.254
    When I change the default gateway on the client it asks for subnet mask and Ip address ect..
    The dhcp scope is valid and is running.

    Anything else?

    Set the TCP/IP properties on the client to "Obtain IP address & DNS settings automatically", I tend to disable then re-enable the network card after changing such settings....... just to be sure.

    Thanks for the link, I have followed it and the dhcp server is running (After I authorized it)
    But the client pc can still not get an Ip address. It has an APIPA address (169...)

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the reply, I have tried that. And I too am disabling and re-enabling the network card but after each time I still receive limited or local connection only,

    Thanks,

    If you give the client a static address will it join the domain?

    have you checked the firewall is off on the server?

    Check network adapter type inside the VMs.

    Make sure both the server AND client VM machines are "Local Only" and only have one adapter.

    They are both local and only have one adapter each.

    Also does not join the domain (smallbusiness.local)

    Can you ping the DC from the client, or vice versa (by IP or name).

    I pinged them and received no replies. It isn't connected to the domain yet. So I guess thats why I cant ping them? It cannot ping the DC either.
