Root Level Domain

Q: Root Level Domain

How do you tell the name of the Root Level Domain of a site please? For instance on this site GraphicsBlastServer139.GraphicsDept.Generic.com would it just be generic.com?

I appreciate any help. tia

Preferred Solution: Root Level Domain

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Root Level Domain

Top level domains like .com, .net, .org, etc are under the root level domain, .
The root-level domain is usually left off of the URL though, google.com is really google.com.

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on a quad core PC with 4gb of RAM. This morning when rebooting, I noticed Windows showed it was updating. I'm not sure if this was prior to or after the reboot. The reboot did not complete. I attempted a system repair and a system restore in normal mode but neither would complete. I also tried this using the Windows install DVD. When I rebooted in safe mode, I was able to restore to a restore point yesterday and the computer started normally. At this point, I disconnected the machine from the Internet and scheduled a boot-level scan in Avast. I also disconnected my external USB drives and thumb drives.

Hello, this is my first time posting here. I have a hp pavillion 1000 running vista

I have searched everywhere for a solution to this problem, and see many viruses and trojans that sound similar to my problem, but nothing matches it exactly (and no solutions seem to work).

I believe the virus came in via a pen drive, though it has infected all of my other usb drives, including my 500 gig hard disk that contains all of my data. The hard disks inside my laptop seem unaffected.

For the affected drives, directories at their root levels have been replaced by executables. If I double click these, it still launches into the directories allowing me to access my files. However, it spawns a new windows explorer. Inside the subdirectories, everything appears to be normal and the directories are just simple directories. Only at the root level are they executables. It is also impossible to "show hidden files" in folder options.

Up until four nights ago, my computer had been up for over 30 days with no trouble. Now, it cannot last more than a day before all of the memory is claimed. Error boxes pop up from time to time stating "server has stopped working" or "svchost has stopped working".

I would gladly just re-install at this point, except that my primary external drive would likely still be infected. I have removed everything from all of my pen drives and reformatted them but it does not solve the problem. When I create a new directory on them, within s... Read more

I have a partitioned hard drive and I use the C drive only for systems and programs etc. All my personal stuff is kept on my E drive which I keep neatly organised with a folder structure that works for me. However Windows keeps automatically cluttering up my E drive by creating 10 root level folders, and even if I delete them they are recreated. I cannot understand why this feature exists, but more importantly how can I stop it from happening?? It makes it so confusing because I already have subfolders in my own folder structure with the same name and it's just confusing and a cluttered mess. I'd be so grateful if anyone can tell me how to stop this really annoying feature of window please...??

A:How to stop Windows auto creating root level folders??

First of all, What are the names of these folders ? and certainly it is not a Windows feature. The Folders that are created by Windows on root level are $RECYCLE.BIN (contains deleted files), System Volume Information (contains System Restore points) among with other hidden files such pagefile.sys, hiberfil.sys under C: drive, they are hidden and you can not move to a sub folder. If you have folders created under E: drive then it must have been from some third party applications which you have to find out what it is and usually there's an option to configure where the folders should be created.

I posted this in e-mails, but it probably better belongs here since the question relates to security.

Probably a hugely basic question, but while setting up some new addresses I've just figured out that my (Irish) hosting provider doesn't run SSL on their pop e-mail servers.

Guess I'm wondering just how much of a risk this might represent. I'm not so worried about the data in the mails (I don't send sensitive information), but I'd rather not find that I was being used to send spam or worse.

I'm on Mac Mail right now - but hope to switch to a notebook running Win 10 Prof in the coming week or so which might be a different scene. Mail pretty clearly regards SSL as more or less standard - it goes through a routine to get an OK to continue without it.

The Mac Mail has been consistently glitchy over the years - with mailboxes getting corrupted and having to be rebuilt, folders disappearing, and counters showing crazy numbers.

The latter somehow was sorted immediately after running the recenty installed Kaspersky internet security, and previously (for short periods only) following clean installs of the OS - which has tended to make me suspicious that I maybe had company. The local Mac service place has always poo pooed the possibility however.....

Hello,

I am dealing with big problem on multiple workstations in our company. Many Windows 7 computers and one Windows XP computer have all Root CA certificates not trusted so I cannot import new certificate generate by Certification Authority in our Country.

I noticed this problem recently and after two days on google I couldn't find solution to this.

If I open mmc and select Certificates - > Computer -> Trusted Root Certification Authorities I see all certs on computer but after I check any they show this in General info about Cert:

This CA Root certificate is not trusted because it is not in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store.

Or:

This root certificate appears to be trusted by the remote computer. To ensure this root certificate is valid on the remote computer, verify this root certificate on that computer.

This goes for all certs (Microsoft, Thawte, Go Daddy, GeoTrust...) and even for our certificates generated by our internal CA.

We push only Critical and Security Updates from our wsus server. Affected computers have installed all updates.

We have firewall and don't allow full access to internet but I tried to give one computer with this issue full access to internet and reboot couple times but that didn't help.

Hello,

I have a question in terms of the "Broken trust between computers and domain" ATA alert.

When a computer is joined to the domain, a secure channel password is stored with the computer account on the domain controller. By default, this password is changed every 30 days. ATA may raise this alert when the secure channel password held by the computer
does not match what is stored in AD.

May I know when the secure channel password held by the computer might not match what is stored in AD? What are the known root causes?

A:Low system sound level, high music level?

I think I understand your question. I use powered partner speakers and in my audio controls for my sound card it has output levels and then and then my music manager has it's own. First I set my sound card at around 1/3 volume +- and then go to the mm and set a volume to around 1/2-3/4 full volume. Then at my speakers I adjust the volume to a clear but loud volume. Then going back to the mm I'll use it's volume only which is controlled off my keyboard and it seems to work well. You still will run into situations where things are too load or too soft and other than in your music files there really isn't much you can do about that, just be ready to ride your volume a little.

I have discovered a huge number of similar files in the root directory of my C drive.  They all have names that start with "UDMFT" and end in 6 digits. The first one is 2,836,257 KB; and all the others are 1KB.  There is no extension on any of them.  I have looked at a couple of the smaller ones with Notepad, but they are unintelligible.  They were all created on 1/18/2015.
 
The second thing I wanted to ask about is all the TEMP***ROOT folders in the root directory.  The asterisks represent what mostly looks like filename extensions.  Almost all of them were created in March of 2014. I think this was when we were cleaning malware from this laptop.  I tried to find the topic, but couldn't.  I hesitate to say who I think was helping me, because I'm not 100% sure.
 
Can I safely delete these Temp folders?
 

A:Strange files in Root Directory amd multiple Temp***root folders

Don't delete things manually you might break something. To help clean up a lot of this stuff you right click your C drive. Go to properties under general tab 'disk cleanup' and then click 'clean up system files' button. Select what you want to delete. Careful though there are memory dumps, restore points and downloaded microsoft updates in there as well that you may want to keep. They can grow very large in size. However, they are all safe to delete through disk clean up. As an example on a Windows 7 updated to windows 10 you can delete the Windows 7 backup in there as well. Doing so you can't choose to go back to Windows 7. I made a clone of Windows 7 prior and after Windows 10 so for me I deleted it all & regained 20-30G's of disk space.

We are experiencing this problem with a few workstations and laptops and what we are currently doing is exporting the CA certificate from a workstation that has it in its store and importing it. The problem with this is that the certificate will eventually
expire and we will have to re import a new one again. I don't believe it is a group policy issue because other computers in the same OU are not missing the certificate.

Cany anyone shed light on how to troubleshoot this or how to force (if possible) the workstation to download the CA certificate?

Hello,
I've a very nasty issue with root CA certificate that's disappearing from the trusted root authorities store. I'll shortly describe the environment: 
- Two tier PKI infrastructure with a offline, standalone root CA and a domain joined Enterprise issuing CA (both W2012R2); root CA certificate is published in AD
- There's a parent and child domain. Issuing CA lives in parent domain (2012R2 domain&forest level)
- Employees are working on a 2012R2 RDS&Citrix XenApp 76 server in the child domain
- In the parent domain several servers are using a SSL certificate signed by the company owned issuing CA; it's a SAN certificate
- The root CA's certificate is in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store of all member servers in parent & child domain (so, that's also valid for the 2012R2 RDS servers)
The issue is that the certificate of the root CA that's in the trusted CA store of all RDS servers is being deleted on a regular base (at least once a day on each RDS-server). I enabled CAPI2 logging, but I couldn't find anything that makes sense. However
I'm able to reproduce this issue in very simple way: if I start IE11 on a RDS-server and browse to the IP-adres or NETBIOS-name of a webserver that host a site that's using a certificate from our PKI (so, it's clear that the URL isn't matching the names entered
in the SAN certificate) and I click on 'Continue to this website (not recommended)', the root CA's certificate is being removed from trusted... Read more

Ok, so I've run into a very tricky spot:

Basically, one problem led to another and I ended up having to painstakingly transfer programs from my laptop to a flash drive and then to my desktop. When I finally found out what was the problem with my USB ports not working, I reinstalled the motherboard drivers, and everything seemed to work fine--for the USB 2.0 ports.

Now the USB 3.0 ports aren't working and I have no idea why. I tried downloading intel's drivers from their site and no luck. I tried downloading from the motherboard manufacturer's site and no luck. So, I finally looked at the hardware/device manager: "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"

I have read on here that in the case of reformatting to get rid of viruses that one should do a low level format and I do not understand what that is. I have read the article from Microsoft that some have linked to that is suppose to explain the difference, but it does not explain it to me.

Is formatting using the XP disk considered low level?

Also, how does one go about using third party formatting tools like killdisk or the format tools from the hard drive mfg? As in, do they have to be burned as an ISO to a cd or can the just be copied onto a cd?

I am assuming they have to be put on a cd as I cannot see how they could run off the hard drive, is that correct?

Hello,
Currently we are in the middle of a migration project. We are migrating users from child domains to the root domain of one organization.
The user accounts are migrated with powershell using Move-ADObject cmdlet. This works as expected. The SIDHistory attribute is updated correctly.
Recently we received complaints from some *migrated* users - they lost their default/custom file associations. This happens only on Windows 8/Windows 8.1.
What happens:

the user is migrated and logs onher profile loads and everything's preserved (as expected)the user clicks on a .jpeg file (previously associated with program XYZ)OS asks the user to choose a program to open the file withthe user chooses a default program XYZ and the file openswhen the user clicks on a .jpeg file again - OS asks to choose a program again

Our investigation shows that it is connected with the UserChoice registry key and the HASH value under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.SomeExt

According to this blog 
the HASH is calculated based on user's SID. But after the migration the user has new SID and the HASH becomes invalid and we hit this:

Hello everyone,

We are running into a somewhat peculiar issue that I have been unable to find any information about and I was hoping someone here could point me in the right direction.



Several of our Windows 7 laptops (We're working on moving to W10) have become unable to change the password for a domain account from the Change a Password screen after hitting CTRL ALT DEL. Usually when someone would select to change their password,
it would take them to the text boxes with the domain\username pre-populated, I'm sure you are familiar.

Recently, when following the same steps, an account selection screen comes up with the option to use a smart card or simply type in the username. While we are working on implementing smart cards, they are not yet in use and in fact should not even
show any options for them yet. After opting to type in a user account, rather than populating the username field with domain\username, the field remains blank with grey text saying "provider\user name" instead. If the user types in their domain\username
and attempts to change the password, they get a generic error stating it is unable to change the password.



Users are still able to use a co-workers machine to change their password from the same screen by substituting the username. Most of the affected machines are from users that work in the same team, even though those same users can change their passwords
elsewhere just fine. It appears to be isolated to specific ... Read more

I'm running into a problem with connecting to network drives over a VPN. The common difference is whether or not the computer is part of the domain by default.

1) Computers connecting to VPN using local account on computer: Prompted for a domain login when attempting to use the network drives. Can get in.

2) Computers connecting to VPN using a domain account (but on another network): Unable to connect. Specific error changed based on below info.
A) Computer logged on and connected to an outside network. Never connected to domain network: Can't find folder error.
B) Connects to domain network at some point before connecting to an outside network and using VPN: Might be in use error, attached.

A:VPN Network Shared Drive Error Domain/Non-Domain Differences

Sounds more like the network the VPN connection puts you in has trouble making kerberos connections to domain controllers, but NTLM connections work fine (kerb might be blocked). The errors are likely bogus if you can get #1 to work - if the computer is connected to a domain it's going to want to use Kerb before NTLM, and if the machine still has (what it thinks is) a viable kerb ticket, it's going to try and validate that with a DC (to achieve auth), and if this fails, so does the connection.

This may not actually be the case, of course, but it sure has the symptoms of it.

A:cannot access shared folder after changing domain with old domain cred

Hello,

Have you removed/re-added the User's credentials (from the PC with shared folder) with the new domain name?
Also, make sure that the shared folder has Everyone permission in the Security Tab.

Here is the scoop ... Two networks connected via frame relay line. Two different PDCs and domain names. Can ping internal IP address, but can not browse through Network Neighborhood. Set up WINS on both and when trying to get them to share info I get Connection was aborted by the remote WINS in the event log. I can see the IP addresses for the remote network through the DHCP manager. Any ideas on what I should do to be able to browse the remote network and also set it up so that I can administer it remotely, would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Community,

My company use around 700 desktops and laptops on a domain. our file server has a home share drive that the AD links to and then maps when a user logs onto any machine when using their domain account. my problem when I log onto my normal laptop
it says network name is no longer available. when I log onto another machine it connects and maps normally. all other servers UNC name works normally. I can ping it by DNS and IP and can RDP to it but not see any shares.

Please can you help?

Hi,

I hit major problems yesterday when a power surge killed my server (despite ups/surge protection!). We have a small set up of 15 win2k machines and one Windows server 2003 all connected under a domain.

Basically all user machines were unaffected but my only method of getting us up and running was installing a fresh version of 2003 server on a new machine. i followed this guide and configured it to use the same domain as last time (hoping that all the client machines would carry on as they were before the server out). i've managed to set up access to shared drives hosted on the network. That is working.

However i am now having these problems on all client machines

Client machines cannot connect to shared printers from another client machine. - Logging on as an administrator to their machine locally (not domain) you can add and print. Simply changing their policies to admin does not allow them access.
Each machines is still connected to the domain (so it says) but if you take them off and try to put them back on the domain i get this error:the following error occurred attempting to join the domain " ". network path was not found
If somebody can help me out i would be very gratefull. I'm alright with basic networking but have never installed Win server from fresh. I like to think i've just missed a simple checkbox or similar!? I've basically followed the guide and have done little else in way of changes, so you should be able to get a good i... Read more

We have been getting sporadic reports from our users of the error, "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."  The workaround has been to dejoin and rejoin the domain, but it keeps happening and we need a permanent
fix.  We are primarily a laptop shop.
It has been suggested we disable the automatic machine accouint password change on our domain members in GPO.  While this may be a viable option with relatively low security risks, I'd really like to figure out why it's happening and try to
fix it. 
The machines can lose the trust relationship at random.  It can happen overnight, or after going into hibernation.  I've had it happen to me a few times.  The DCs (we have 2) both show error 5722, but one is spitting out a specific Kerberos
error that the other one is not:

While processing an AS request for target service krbtgt, the account kriegesh did not have a suitable key for generating a Kerberos ticket (the missing key has an ID of 2).
The requested etypes : 18. The accounts available etypes : 23  -133  -128  3  1. Changing or resetting the password of kriegesh will generate a proper key.
My main issue is trying to determine why this continues happening and if we can resolve it without disabling the account password.  If that IS our best option, then so be it.  Any
thoughts are welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!  ~Sarah

I've been trying to join a new Windows 7 Professional machine to a domain controller running Windows 2003 Server with no luck.  We currently have 4 Windows XP machines running on that domain without any issues, but when I try to add the Windows 7 computer,
here is what happens:

A computer account on the domain could not be found (confirmed it is already there)
I put in the computer name and domain again, and Administrator credentialsNow it tells me: "An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has failed."
I currently have DNS on the Windows 7 PC set to the Domain Controller and have IPv6 unchecked under Network Properties.  I can even ping the domain name (resolves to IP of the domain controller).  It looks like it can, indeed, find the domain from
the message in step 1, so am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Cannot join Windows 7 to domain even after setting DNS to domain controller IP

Hi,
You need flush your DNS cache in client side first.
Then, let?s create the following registry value for a try:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManWorkstation\Parameters
 
 - Created a DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
 - Created a DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0
Reboot the machine and check the result again.Alex Zhao

Hello everyone.

A while back before I knew better I gave a client of mine an active directory domain that ended in .org and did not exist on the internet at the time. Now, I'm discovering in the DNS event log at regular intervals errors about how the computers in the internal domain are unable to register in the DNS server of the web domain of the same name. So, my question is whether there is something I can do to change the Active Directory domain so that I don't get those errors anymore.
They're running Windows 2003 server standard with Active Directory, roaming profiles, routing and remote access for VPN, DHCP server, standard fileserver, and print server. I may have missed one or two things but likely I haven't. The server has itself as the primary DNS server though it's not the 127 address it's the actual IP. The secondary server is the router but I have the DHCP giving out the servers for opendns.com as options 3 and 4 after the Domain Controller and the router but I had the problem before adding the opendns.com entries.
Anyone know why the local DNS server is trying to register entries in the DNS server of the web domain? Anyone have any ideas on how I can go about fixing it?
Thanks

Joe

P.S. if this is a question more appropriate for another area feel free to move it.

Hello everyone,

So on my work laptop yesterday i got disconnected from the network, and upon trying to reconnect i had internet access but no network access, ran through some diag, was able to ping my other work station, ip,dns and dg where all fine, checked for dns records issue, none found. so i removed it from the domain and tried re-adding it, and this is where the problem is no matter what i do i cannot add this laptop on the domain. i get full internet access on the network but no network access. i know the Dns server is functioning perfectly and cant be the issue, i have also flushed dns, rebuilt tcp/Ip stack and removed all lan and wlan profiles. i am also getting a certificate error when trying to access the network on wlan.

Using my local admin here are some print screens of first the issue when trying to add the laptop back to the domain, then Ping results to my DNS server .

after removing the machine from the domain it now no longer picking up the correct DNS server.

Would assigning a new DNS record resolve the issue???

he following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "bareesc.bareescentuals.com":

A:An active directory domain controller for the domain could not be contacted

Funny enough, we've found a handful of users on our network today unable to access local resources for the same reason!

Your DNS settings are being hijacked. They should point at your DC, but instead are pointed at a malicious DNS server hosted somewhere in Israel. Give your computer a good bath before letting play with the other children again.

We're currently in the process of mediation around here, too.

Hope that helps!

Hi,

I have a domain joined windows 7pro (64bit) not able to connect to shared folder on a non domain joined pc with windows 7pro (32bit). Only public folders are accessible. I get a do not have permission message, I tried adding the domain\user to share permissions but domain is not recognized on the non domain-joined pc.

Does my domain admin have access to the homegroup and the shared folders on the home pc?

What are my options for access to a non public secure folder on the non domain pc from the domain joined pc.


Sorry for the awkward description, don't know how else to describe the situation.

my apologies if these questions were addressed elsewhere, I could not find any relevant threads.

Thanks

A:Domain joined pc, does domain admin have access to my homegroup

Hi Takatso, welcome to sevenforums. As I read you post, it looks like you are logged into your domain joined PC as a domain user is this correct? If so, your PC will be treated as acting as a part of the domain. If you then try and connect to another pc at home, there will be a problem as your home pc is not recognised by the domain pc as part of the domain. You should set yourself up a user account on the domain pc whilst it is NOT connected to the domain, login to the new account whilst not on the domain and then try sharing the folders with the non-domain pc.

No, your does not have access on the home computer as they are part of the domain and not the homegroup.

Ok, I'm currently being hosted with Dreamhost.com, but my domain is with FXDomains.com. How do I make it so that the domain I have at FXDomains.com will work like the domain I have at Dreamhost.com, for example FXDomains.com provides me with the domain x.com, however Dreamhost.com provides me with y.com. I want to make it so that when someone goes to x.com, it behaves like y.com, such as x.com/forums would go the same place as y.com/forums It's not domain forwarding, it's something ro do with DNS or something. I changed my FXDomains.com's DNS thing to NS1.DREAMHOST.COM, NS2.DREAMHOST.COM & NS3.DREAMHOST.COM so what do I do now?

I don't even know how to word the question. Here is what I got.  I apologize in advance if this is posted in the wrong place.  I will gladly repost if necessary.
I have one Windows 7 desktop (out of a couple of 100 Windows 7 and 10 machines) that I have put onto our domain.  When the user turns it on she gets the domain "username/password screen", logs in and all is good.  A few times
over the last several months the computer is turned on and the user does not get the domain login screen but boots right to local desktop.  This computer is no longer connected to the domain.
I assumed the user did something so I put the computer back on the domain.  I logged in as user and it created a new profile.  All programs that I installed were not there including Office products, AV products etc.  Could not find any reference
on the hard drive that they ever were there.  This user now has username.000 001 002 etc.  When I put the pc back onto the domain I also copy documents from the previous profiles that I have found.  All profiles will have the same date which
corresponds when the issue presents itself. 
Restore points are not there.  Windows updates are run as if this is a new machine out of the box.  I am completely baffled. All help is appreciated.

Edited - I have noticed that my event log has several entries dated from when we purchased the pc and then the date ski... Read more

I've got a machine running Windows 7 logged on the network domain but when I try to map a share to a machine on the network, but not registered on the domain I cannot connect (even though I have a local account on the networked machine).When attempting to connect Windows 7 prompts me for my connection credentials and it automatically fills in the domain name.  How can I connect to this network share using credentials that are local to that network share?

A:Logging in to Non-Domain Network Share from computer on Domain

When you say local credentials I assume you mean local on the "TestServer", not local on the Windows 7 box. Then you should be able to just type in TestServer\LocalAccount and the password (the domain you see should automatically switch to "TestServer")Also; have you tried mapping the drive using the IP address (i.e. \\xx.xx.xx.xx\TestShare)?

Hi everyone!
Noticed, that if I try to access a shared folder located on domain computer from non-domain computer, typing \ \ computername\sharename, pop-up authentication window appears after some time (30-80 sec). But, if I type \\computername  without pointing
sharename, pop-up authentication window appears instantly.
If I run created shortcut for this share - pop-up authentication window appears instantly.
I can easily reproduce this problem, it appeared on all machines I was testing.

Can it be fixed somehow? In my scenario, I can not use net use cmd.
Thanks.
