Windows 2000 Server Active Directory

I have a client who has installed a Windows 2000 server
(SP4) running as a domain controller. On the LAN they
have Windows 98 SE clients that sign into the domain. At
different times the clients will lose connections to the
server as well as to the network. If they go to network
neighborhood , all that shows is entire network. If they
type in the URL \\ibm_srv , it will not find the server
or any of the clients this way as well. But, they can go
to a dos prompt and ping the server as well as the
clients by their IP address. They are using static IP
addresses and not DHCP. If they reboot or log off and
back on, the server and clients will appear in the
network neighborhood as well as URL name.

I don't know the exact reason but I would make sure that they are running wins on the
domain controller and that the domain controller is a wins client as are all the W98
computers. W98 computers rely on wins to find the domain controller. Another thing to
try is the install the Directory Services Client on a couple of the W98 computers and
configure then to be able to use ntlmv2 authentication to see if it makes a
difference. I believe Microsoft may have an updated version of the DS Client if you
call them and tell them you are having problems in a W2K domain. --- Steve

I don't know the exact reason but I would make sure that they ar
running WINS on the domain controller. W98 computers rely on wins t
find the domain controller. Go to WINS service see that push and oul
function is activated.
or else see DNS resolution taking
If not go to Network Neighborhood > Propeties
here you type DNS IP address

thank to
