First off, I'm a programmer that needs to fix certain networking issue's so bear with me :). Also, sorry for the question title. I couldn't think of a better one.
Secondly, it's not the same as the question: Domain Controller thinks its on a Public Network, since that guy had IP v6 enabled and disabled that to solve his problem. Below I specifically state what my problem is and what I've found.
Our network has 2 domain controllers that are really active at the moment. We can't run the servers at night for the time being so we need to start them in the morning.
Things I've tried:
- Everything stated here: Domain Controller thinks its on a Public Network
- Appending a primary DNS suffix etc in the network adapter.
- Managing the fixed IP address in our router.
- Changing in 'Local Security Policy' so that all unidentified networks are private.
After starting out "primary" DC, it connects to a public network called 'Network 5', after I restart the network adapter it connects to a domain network called '.org'(it's called our domain, but I prefer to remain anonymous) and everything is working. After a while I came across this:
This network profile is under managed: The 'Network 5' profile, Which has a wrong MAC address.
This network profile is under unmanaged: The '.org' profile, Which has the correct MAC address
So, is this wrongly configured or is there something else going on?
