I'm a very inexperienced server admin, so if fail to provide some important information I apologize in advance. I am doing some development for a very small software company and I'm having a bit of an issue with accessing Active Directory users from one of the machines. They have 3 servers total - Server A is the Active Directory server, Servers B and C are both development servers and all of them are Windows Server 2008 R2.
When I attempt to manage security for users/computers on Server B I can see the "Entire Directory" in the list of locations when selecting users. On Server C, it is not present.
Both B and C are setup in Active Directory on A, but until an hour ago C was "disabled". I enabled C, and restarted B just for good measure. It didn't make a difference. Is there something I need to do on Server A to propagate that change? Was that my problem in the first place, or is there something else I need to do to allow Server C access the Active Directory listing.
Just as a specific example, let's say I want to add a domain user to the local Administrators group. From Server Manager -> Configuration -> Local Users and Groups -> Groups -> Administrators => "Add to Group...". I click "Add", then click the "Locations..." button. On Server B "Entire Directory" is listed and I can choose any user in Active Directory, on Server C it is not.
Any ideas? I'm happy to look up any relevant information that I've left out! Thanks in advance
