Access problems after joining Windows 7 machines on W2K3 Server domain
I recently upgraded my three computers on my small network to Windows 7. I found that the only way that I could join the domain on the W2K3 server was to turn on DNS for the server. This has caused me some grief. I am by no means a DNS expert, which is why I was not using it on my server. I let my internet service provider handle that through the modem. Now I have three different issues:
1. I cannot access my samba share from my linux machine.
2. I cannot access my wireless access point connected to my router.
3. I cannot access my web site (controlled by a third-party) as it has the same URL is my Windows 2003 domain (MyDomain | Domain Names, Web Hosting, and Free Domain Services). This was probably a bad domain name choice, but it was not an issue before.
This all looked like the DNS being turned on. However, when I turned off, I could no longer access the domain from Windows 7 machines.
