I have a lab with Windows Server 2008 R2 acting as a domain controller for domain
win.testlab with IP address
10.0.1.1. I have several Windows Server 2012 VMs connecting to this domain within the same subnet with no problems. Windows Firewall is off. The network is
I have a Windows Server 2012 machine on network
LIME with IP address
10.0.2.2 and I want to join it the
win.testlab domain. I can ping the domain controller with no issues and when I run
net view \\10.0.1.1 I get a reponse back showing me the shares on the DC. All looks good.
Now, when I try and join the domain using the NETBIOS name of
WIN it fails, but if I join with
win.testlab it succeeds. Does that indicate something up with the router between the subnets? Do you know what? It's not causing any issues but it leads me to suspect a misconfiguration of the router.
