Files 2003 server in a 2008 domain

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a 2008R2 DC (complete 2008R2 domain) and a 2008R2 FileServer, everything is working perfectly . . but now i placed an "old" Windows 2003 FileServer in this network (alot of data) . .

    I add this 2003 (x64) to the domain and it seems to work . . but now i will add some security groups to the shares . .  but i cannot browser the AD environment at all . . 

    Clicking Advanced give me an error see below .  .

    Any tips ??

    (on the 2003 server is only the file server role installed)

  • Verify this server can talk to one of the domain controller. Check whether validate local DNS server has been specified correctly in its NIC. I would suggest disjoin the machine from the domain & join it back. Also, verify the event log for any relevant errors.

  • Disjoined the machine . . . checked all connection settings on NIC . . . rejoin the machine to domain, this goes smooth and quickly. I can see all other machines, stable connection to domain controller and dns.

    In the event log are just one error about windows search, but nothing else.

    Try to add groups to folders give same error as described above . .  :(

  • Hello,

    did you run "sfc /scannow" on the Windows server 2003 to exclude problems with some system files?

  • Since this is a member server have you tried other domain admin or local administrator login and check how does it work.Also ensure that public ip address is not configured as dns setting on the server.It should only point to local dns server.If you have multiple nic disable the unrequired NIC.

  • Hi,

    Please check if the following registry keys are missing?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{080d0d78-f421-11d0-a36e-00c04fb950dc} HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{274fae1f-3626-11d1-a3a4-00c04fb950dc}

    If so, please import these registry keys from the other working machine and check the result.

    Regards,
