Dear All,

I have two problems with my Windows 2000 Advanced Server. I have DHCP, DNS
and WINS installed and configured.

The first problem that I have is intermittent network browsing. When
navigating to my network through My Network Places -> Entire Network ->
entire contents -> Microsoft Windows Network -> MyDomain I sometimes get to
see all the computers on the network other times I can only see the server.
Can anyone shed some light on what could be happening?

The second problem I have is with nslookup. When I run the following
command: nslookup -> set type=all -> www.btinternet.com I get:

Server: server01.mydomain.local
Address: 192.168.0.2

Non-authoritative answer:
www.btinternet.com internet address = 194.73.73.113

I know when I run this type of query I should get a whois type of response,
which will include such details as the DNS servers. Can anyone help on this
one?

Many Thanks,


John Barwell

Run the BROWSTAT utility to help you determine what might be happening with
your browse lists. Any errors or warning in the event logs? DCDIAG and
NETDIAG are also good tools that spit out lots of useful information about
your servers/domains.

Dear Bobby,

I have run the tools that you suggested. I get two warnings when I run
netdiag and dcdiag.

When I run dcdiag I get the following error:
Starting test: services
SMTPSVC service is stopped on [MyServer]

When I run netdiag I get the following error:
LDAP test: passed
[Warning] Failed to query SPN registeration on DC 'MyServer.MyDomain.local'.

Can you tell me the impact that these warning may have and how to resolve
them please?

Many Thanks,


John
