    I'm having problems with norton ghost.

    I have created a boot disk that I know works (I tried it before I reinstalled the main PC and It logged onto the server and mapped the share that I store my images on). I have now reinstalled the machine to the way I want it but when I use the same boot disk as before I get the following message

    You were logged on, but you have not been validated by a server.........etc.

    This points me to believe that the server is not validating the session, Is this right and how do I resolve it?

    I have tried renameing the main PC and run a prog called Newsid (thought this might work as I was having network problems before the reinstall), I have checked the servers DNS and DHCP and It all seems to be working fine, Am I missing something????

    Have you rebuilt the domain since you created the ghost image of the PC ?

    You could try removing the computers account from the domain, moving the PC to a workgroup from the domain then rejoin it to the domain.

    Can you still get to the mapped drive, I get this message when doing the same thing from time to time but I can still reach the mapped drive and everything still works? Also check that the workgroup name is the same as the domain.

When I try and join the MaonComp to the domain I get an error message that I have had before (click here to see the error box http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=5171 Last time I got this error I just left the machine and then one day I thought Lets have a look into this so tried to join the domain and It worked first time.

    I'm lost, I have reinstalled DNS on the server but that has still not worked. :evil:

    Hold up

    Just ran netdiag /fix, and the above mentioned folders are now in DNS, will check to see if I can Image/join machine to the domain when I get back home.

    Is there an error number displayed, try the NETHELP command after the error occurs to see if you get any specific detials.

    As far as I'm aware error 53 relates to not being able to identify the server I think. I could be wrong though. Not sure what to suggest, has anything changed since you last used this bootdisk? Are you using a DHCP config for the bootdisk? Can you ping the server from the DOS prompt?

    nothing has changed since I last used the boot disk, I can ping the server and the server can ping the Main PC, DHCP is configured when using the boot disc.

    yeah, both ways.

    I tried to join the domain but was given an error that points to DNS problem, have sorted my DNS now so will try again when I get home from work.

    thanks for the help.....I'll be back if I get no joy this evening

    OK, this is definatly a DNS problem,Hi John, heres the story so far.

    I have a network at home with a server running DHCP, DNS and AD, all the client machines were working fine, due to us decorating I had to take the server down for a few days, upon restarting the server I was unable to see any of the other computers on the network from the Main PC, I did some trouble shooting but decided that the best cause of actio was to reinstall the Main PC and take an Image of it using ghost incase of future problems, after spending a couple of days building the image with the Progs and apps that I wanted Itried to boot the machine using a ghost boot disk that I created and tested before the reinstall, after logging in i got a message saying that I had not been Validated by a server so decided to join the domain and try makeing an image again, I attempted to join the domain from the Network Identification tab but got an error message stating that the specified domain could not be contacted or did not exsist and a URL http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=5171, I have followed the documentation on this site to the letter but can still not join the domain, I am able to ping the server by IP address from the main PC and vice versa, I can also ping the server from the main PC by Host name but I cannot ping the Main PC from the server by host name, IPConfig /all shows that the Main PC is being pointed to the correct IP address for both the DHCP server and the DNS server (Same machine)the DNS suffix search list is populated and so is the connection-specific DNS suffix.

    Any Clues before I have to reinstall the server.

    Tried that already, nada :evil:

    Getting me a little P*$$ed off now, I might just try reinstalling the server OS over the top of the old one to see if that sorts it, if not then a clean install and setup it will have to be :roll:

    Don't do anything yet Derek. Ask at Newark, the're the experts, ask advice whilst on the course.

    Of course whilst there give the forum a plug, that goes without saying.

    I plug the site every chance I get.

    I have had a phone call from Nitlc after posting the problem on the student net, and believe it or not they are stumped, I emailed john kaye, who, I was told that if anyone can solve it he can, still waiting for him to get back to me.

    I have reinstalled the OS over the top of the old one, but it still does not work.

    Here's something new when I do an nslook up from the server on the main PC host name I get the following IP address:216.167.114.177, the IP of the Main PC shows as in the 192.168.X.X range in ipconfig. Zone alarm home has just poped up an alert telling me that the firewall has blocked internet access to maincomp.co.uk (216.167.114.177)(TCP Port 445) from your computer [TCP Flags: S]. Strange thing is that I am currently on the laptop????????????????????? :?:

    I know I should have some on the server but I dont, I have tried to join the main PC to the domain with and without the firewall on the main PC on and off.

    Did that make sense ? :oops: It's getting late

    The IP address that the Main PC's host name resolves to (using nslookup) is registered to a company called maincomp limited. this could be the cause but then again I tried to join the sons machine to the domain and got the same response. also the domain name that I am using on the internal network is registered to someone, So I may have to change my domain name or buy a domain name.

    Don't know if this helps in any way, Derek...

    When I set up my test lab for the 218, I created a domain called Murray.com. That was fine for my machines when not online, but when I was connected, I would have probs that would usually end up with me looking at the rightful Owner of Murray.com's homepage :oops:

    Prob irrelevant, but thought I'd drop that in ....
