    DNS problems


    I am onsite doing a network server and client install.

    Server is windows server 2008 64bit standard r2

    clients (9) are win7 64bit pro

    I will explain how the chain of how stuff is set up then I will be asking some advice.

    Modem > E1000 linksys router (static IP business account) > port1 of the router goes to the server, port 4 of the router goes to the switch > switches goes to the (9) clients.

    I am using 192.168.1.1 for the router address.
    I am using 192.168.1.2 for the server nic card address with a dns line of 127.0.0.1

    The clients are using static ip addresses starting at 192.168.1.20 through 29

    I am looking for suggestions whether or not this is a viable layout in terms of using these ips etc for this type of small business environment.

    The problem I am having is DNS on the server with Active directory

    I was able to network up 4 of the win7 clients to the server and get them to see the server on files share and all clients have internet access at all times.

    I am now on the 5th client and keep getting the error An Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for the domain powerorganics could not be contacted

    I can ping from the clients always to the router and the server 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 but i cannot and have never been able to ping the nameserver powerorganics.local or powerorganics

    Here is the error in full that comes up when I attempt to network the win7 client to the 2008 server.

    ---
    any help would be greatly appreciated as network administration is not exactly my strong point of the tech field but I MUST get this job done.

    Sincerely,
    Phil

    Ops the paste of the actual error message didnt make it in the first post here it is
    --
    Note: This information is intended for a network administrator. If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\Windows\debug\dcdiag.txt.

    The domain name "powerorganics" might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.

    If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.

    The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "powerorganics":

    The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
    (error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

    The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.powerorganics

    Common causes of this error include the following:

    - The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:

    192.168.1.2

    - One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

    powerorganics
    . (the root zone)

    So this post helped me i did most of the things said here in this post and I am able to network the win7 clients to the server now.

    http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserverManagement/thread/d1e91b79-6d33-4bbc-9545-5d0ee5c872a2/

    hope it can help others but I am still interested in feedback on how I have this set up IE: if you would use something other than 192.168.1.1 and .2

    Thanks,
    Phil
