I got the following error on a Domain Controller:
During the past 4.22 hours there have been 114 connections to this Domain Controller from client machines whose IP addresses don't map to any of the existing sites in the enterprise. Those clients, therefore, have undefined sites and may connect to any Domain Controller including those that are in far distant locations from the clients.
'%SystemRoot%\debug\netlogon.log' has lots of errors like:
08/07 09:05:19 MYDOMAIN: NO_CLIENT_SITE: FOONAME 192.168.1.50
In my Active Directory 'Sites and Services' The domain controller question is in a site that doesn't correspond to the geographic location (There isn't a 'site' for this location), and the IPs in the netlogon.log are not listened in the 'subnets' in Sites and Services.
- Is this problem?
- What is Sites / Services for anyways?
- What would be the implications of creating sites, adding all the subnets that are actually in the network, and moving the Domain Controllers to the 'Site' under sites and services?
- Are Sites and Services the same on all Domain Controllers (Replicated) ?
Please forgive my AD ignorance...
