I have 2 domain controllers running Server 2016 and all using Static DNS records. When domain joined computers connect to the network they show as being connected to an Unidentified Network instead of a Domain network. In most cases I have to disable the adapter and re-enable it to get the Domain back. Is there anything I can do to fix this or where to even troubleshoot to figure out why it isn't seeing the domain first?

  • If the computers have static IP addresses, what are you expecting should be 'updated'? Or do you mean the computers are not creating A records.

  • They are creating A records but when they connect they show the network as Unidentified Network instead of the Domain they should be on.

  • That's not a function of the DNS A records. That's a function of NLA. - blogs.technet.microsoft.com/networking/2010/09/08/…

  • @JukEboX: The question should be modified to state only that the computers are showing an unidentified network, and remove the DNS speculation.
