I cannot connect clients to sbs2003 domain because of this error: The format of specified network name is invalid.
Before that there is a prompt for a login and password, so the server is found. I can't also view the server resources via \ \ servername or \ \ ServerIP because it can not find the path. I can not add the computer account by servername/ConnectComputer because after entering the login and password I can wait forever.
Clients can browse the web without any problems with the DNS server address - sbs2003.
nslookup servername gets the correct server name and the correct IP address. Pings to the server works without a problem.
Gateway / router / firewall for the network is debian, also DHCP Server. The topology is as follows:
modem - debian - lan where there are clients and the server SBS2003
Client gets the following configuration from DHCP server:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix: domain_name IP Address: 192.168.20.100 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.20.1 - network interface on Debian DHCP Server: 192.168.20.1 DNS Servers: 192.168.20.2 - SBS2003 server address Primary WINS Server: 192.168.20.2
For the SBS:
dhcp service uninstalled
IP Address: 192.168.20.2 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.20.1 DNS server: 192.168.20.2 WINS Server: 192.168.20.2
forward here where I have entered OpenDNS DNS addresses
is set to listen on all IP addresses
So once again the internet works without a problem, client gets addressing from a DHCP server, on the client does not work server shares or connecting to a domain. Somebody help me because I no longer have the strength to go further.
