Re: http://<servername>/connectcomputer not working from Vista Cli



I have checked through the link you sent me regarding setting up the SBS
Server for internet access, and all looks fine for a one nic install. The
only slight difference is that the DNS Forwarder is not pointing to an
external DNS server, but to our router. This in turn points to external DNS
Servers. But I can't imagine that this would cause internal resolving issues.

The 137.0.0.0 shouldn't be a problem as all devices are on the same subnet.
It has never caused a connectivity problem before. It is not an ideal range
to be using, but it is what was inherited.

I cannot see what is wrong with the SBS Config?

It looks like your running the Vista workstation with a public IP address

configuration seems to be unusual or incorrect. Make sure your SBS network

Hi Merv

Thank you for the very fast reply. The SBS is handling the DHCP. It
wasn't
until this morning. The DHCP used to be handled by an old NT4 Server (and
it
was on another domain). I thought this won't help, so stopped the
existing
DHCP service on the NT4 box, and installed it a fresh on the SBS 2003 box.
I
din't export/import any databases, but just setup the scope on the SBS,
then
released and renewed the client using ipconfig. Finally I flushed the dns
(just in case).

I have installed the 926505 patch to the server.

This is ipconfig /all from the Vista (Business) Client:

C:\Windows\system32>ipconfig /all

I took a look in the SBSnetsetuplog, and I am getting this:

08/08/2021 10:36
-- Starting SBS Net Setup --
CNSHelp::DoDNSQueryCompanyWeb(): Could not resolve companyweb. Most likely
this is a DNS problem. Error [11001]

08/08/2021 10:40
-- Starting SBS Net Setup --
CNSHelp::DoDNSQueryCompanyWeb(): Could not resolve companyweb. Most likely
this is a DNS problem. Error [11001]

So I tried to ping companyweb, with no joy. I tried http://companyweb in
IE
and still no joy. then I tried http://companyweb.batten-allen.local and
the
worked fine. However, from an existing XP Client that is already joined
to
the Domain, I get a ping response from compayweb, and http://compayweb
works
fine.

So I guess that for some reason the XP client is able to resolve
companyweb,
but the Vista machine is not??? and is this anything to do with why the
connectcomputer won't work????

Many thanks for your time

Is SBS handling DHCP service for the LAN?

Can you please post an ipconfig /all for the server and the Vista
workstation?

I assume you've applied the KB 926505 update to the server?

I am trying to install my second Vista Business machine to an existing
SBS
2003 Domain. I have tried all steps that I can find from forums, i.e.
Ensured that the SBS Server is the primary DNS, installed the patches
on
the
SBS (Basic) Box and the patch on the Vista Client. Turned off the
Firewall
on the client. Ran Iexplorer as Administrator. Added the SBS Server
and
IP
to the Hosts file on the local PC....

Yet I still get the message box that starts:

"The Server that is running Windows SBS 2003 cannot be found. Verify
the
following before you continue:......."

This is after I run nshelp.exe. There is a delay of about 20-30 secs,
then
this box appears.

The first Client, I had to join to the domain manually, but I am not
too
happy about doing this because of what else may not be configured
correctly
by using the manual method.

Any help much appreciated.

Cheers

SS
