chrome is known for ignoring /etc/hosts file. There's an answer on superuser that tells you how to fix that: - Go to chrome://settings - Click on "Show advanced settings..." - Unmark the Predict network actions to improve page load performance box. - Check if the DNS prefetching is really disabled by going to chrome://dns. You should see there ...

Are you trying to access this from the machine that has these entries in /etc/hosts? You might also want to check /etc/nsswitch.conf to check that 'hosts' comes before 'dns' etc. You can use getent hosts subdomain.sitename.domain.com to see what would be returned to an application when it does a lookup (do this from your [Linux] client)

It turns out this issue is due to KB3002657 and KB3046049: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_28642944.html I uninstalled KB3046049 and the problem went away for a few weeks. Recently the problem returned, so I uninstalled KB3002657 and the problem went away again. Hopefully it will stay that way this time. ...

The domain name is linked to the website directory using the htttp.conf file. If you are on a centos server the conf file is located at /etc/httpd/httpd.conf. I do not have the expertise to guide you to httpd.conf file on other types of OS. But I think you can easily figure that out. Inside httpd.conf look at these lines. <VirtualHost *:80> ...

This is pretty simple: Guess someone types aa.com in his browsers address bar. The browser then starts a dns lookup of aa.com to find out what IP address to talk to. Lets say, for the example, DNS answers 8.8.8.8 Browser then connects to 8.8.8.8 on port 80 and submits a GET request and additional HTTP header fields. One of this HTTP header fields is "HOST" ...

An HTTP request contains a header field named Host which contains the name of the virtual host that should answer. Apache reads this and maps the request to the appropriate vhost. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertext_Transfer_Protocol, specifically the Host: header...

My mistake was to let the default permissions be. I suspect the CREATOR OWNER might have been impeding my progress. If you instead get rid off all the inherited permissions, you will only end up with your current account's permission. You can leave the share permissions as is (Everyone full access), because the effectual permission is determined by the ...

You threw a curve ball when you said local accounts work directly over the internet. Then you threw another one when you said the authentication does reach the server when you look at the log. I only can come up with 2 answers. Since you said lock down configuration was done before I would look in 2 places. Have you checked the remote desktop users group ...

How is the user able to log into the Windows 7 machine even if the computer account is disabled? For this part, try unplugging the physical LAN cable from your computer and try logging in again with the usual credentials. The cache password should still be available for you to logon however while you are in you will still need to rejoin the domain on that ...

Other things to check are: Check your /etc/hosts contains the line 172.30.30.1 debiansrv1 debiansrv1.mydomain From your Windows Pc can you actually ping debiansrv1 & debiansrv1.mydomain Check the clocks between Windows and linux are the same. If the time is out by too much Kerberos authentication won't work and it may not locate DC. EDIT: Create ...

When building an Active Directory server, you can name the domain whatever you like. There's no actual requirement to match it up with a web domain; nor are you required to purchase that web domain. The conflicts that potentially arise are a matter of DNS lookups. For example, if you build an Active Directory domain and call it apple.com (yes, you could ...

Changing your server name to mydomain.uk.co And your server alias to *.mydomain.uk.co Should fix your issue. Covers you in the event you do or do not type in the www. (Or anything else)...

Ensure that dig www.mydomain.co.uk and dig mydomain.co.uk returns you same ip address. If not - it's dns issue If yes - check NameVirtualHost directive in apache.conf

I know this is dead-thread revival, but here goes. According to https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc959846.aspx and https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/180094 you can add entries in an LMHOSTS file for the domain controller. The file resides at C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc and is called LMHOSTS (no extension). The format for the domain ...

In general, Integrated Security (aka Trusted Connection) is more secure than SQL logins and is preferred. The reason is that the services that need to connect to SQL Server don't need to have username and passwords hard-coded anywhere; they can just run with a user that has permissions to access SQL Server. To use Integrated Security, a domain is not ...

By default SSRS only allows connections using Negotiate and NTLM authentication. You will need to add Basic Authentication as an allowed authentication method to your SSRS installation in order to use the simple Username and Password credentials.

OpenAudit is fairly useful in this regard. It can generate a vbscript/javascript login script ( pulls the info using WMI, same as above ) that you can push through group policy to pull this information back to the server ( usually running in a LAMP/WAMP stack ). The downside to using a login script is that, especially when performing a detailed inventory, ...

Here's a little powershell script that will inspect the remote WMI information for an array of computers to display the Computer Name, Description, Monitor Type and Name on screen. Just modify the array in the first line to suit your list of computer names. $ArrComputers = "PC1", "PC2", "PC3", "etc" foreach ($computer in $ArrComputers) { write-host ...

Configure the DNS server on your domain controller to use the public Comcast IP addresses as forwarders only, or allow your DC to use the root hints. All other devices on your network should point to the DNS server on your DC. Your DCs should then point to itself in the network properties. Once this is all squared, the client that you're trying to add ...

I thought I recognized those DNS IP numbers. You have DNS set to use Comcast's DNS, not the DNS that knows anything about sheptock.local. Change the workstation's DNS server to one that knows about steptock.local, including the DC for sheptock.local, and that should help. You can probably do this in your aforementioned wireless router if you're using it ...

You cannot ping Windows 2012 Servers unless you enable it under the Windows Firewall by enabling the File and Printer sharing (Echo request – ICMPv4-In) rule (http://blog.blksthl.com/2012/11/20/how-to-enable-ping-in-windows-server-2012/). You should also check the firewall rules about Active Directory Domain Services.

If I understand you correctly you should just add multiple A-records for the given domain the clients are accessing. The DNS server will provide a random IP each time a client asks for it. It is also called round-robin DNS. Example: www IN A 127.0.0.1 www IN A 127.0.0.2 www IN A 127.0.0.3 www IN A 127.0.0.4

In AIX you can use IP Alias to solve this. Let say you current IP address is 10.5.1.98 and your new IP address is 90.4.12.67 then you can define the 10.5.1.98 as an alias on top of 90.4.12.67. This way any server referencing the IP address 10.5.1.98 would be forwarded to 90.4.12.67 automatically. Whatever flavor of UNIX you are using or Linux for that ...

Installing a new domain controller is just fine. Install, join to the domain, run dcpromo, follow the standard Microsoft guide for it, fine. Migrating DNS and DHCP services? Relatively easy. For all intensive porpoises, you're creating the second domain controller that you should have had in place to begin with. You mentioned that you want to change the ...

Have you used the same hostname and IP address for the secondary? If so you need to remove the secondary as a DC, remove all GUID/references in DNS/ADDS to the old name...or you can use a unique name.

The only thing I'll add to Dan's answer is if you choose to change the name of that profile folder, say back to C:\users\username, then you have to change the path in the registry as well, under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\<GUID>\ProfileImagePath

One possible option would be the method listed in the link below: http://blogs.technet.com/b/sbs/archive/2012/12/13/connecting-windows-8-to-small-business-server-2011-standard-after-the-installation-of-the-latest-update-rollup-3.aspx I assume you're attempting to connect these workstations to the domain for the first time.

This is probably nothing to worry about - this will occur when the original local profile folder doesn't unload or is otherwise corrupted. Basically, the first profile will be C:\Users\username If there's an issue with the username folder, it'll append the domain name: C:\Users\username.domain If there's an issue with the username.domain folder, it'll ...

There is no mechanism to indicate "priority" of authoritative DNS servers. You could theoretically swap out the nameserver records for your domain at the registrar, but due to various layers of DNS caching, that's not going to be an instantaneous change.

Try running the install from an elevated command prompt that maps the network storage prior to running the install. (Basically, when you elevate the process it doesn't have access to the network share, because it's its own session and doesn't have access to the same resources your regular account has.)
