Subdomain pointing to a folder at the domain

Q: Subdomain pointing to a folder at the domain

I'm at the "manage dns settings" at network solutions and I see where I can create a subdomain, but it requires that a subdomain point to a numeric IP... I would like my subdomain "lostandfound.mervisdiamond.com" to point to "mervisdiamond.com/found" What numeric IP should I use in this case? Clearly I can't use the generic IP for the site.

Alternatively, I have no problem with the entire Lost and Found actually hosted at the subdomain. In this case how can I move the directory of code to the subdomain, and not in the folder mervisdiamond.com/found

This is my first time posting here and I would really appreciate the help. Thanks!

My email is jonmervis AT mervisdiamond.com

There are some Japanese flash game websites on a domain called web.fc2.com. I can access some but not others, getting a timeout error.

I can't get to ancho.web.fc2.com and detarou.web.fc2.com . I can get to pi3141592c147.web.fc2.com and yoinouchi.web.fc2.com . I've pinged all four and get very similar results - I know 'similar' is not 'exact' but I am not techy enough to read/understand ping results.

A possibly relevant pair of messages I get from pinging via dnsstuff.com are
- The destination appears to block unwanted UDP packets.
- There appears to be a firewall at <ip address> (hop 1) that blocks unwanted TCP packets.

Both my windows xp and my ubuntu box have the same problem, so it's not a hosts file issue or a system based blocking software. Might be my router?

Thank you...

So we have a server at one of the places I work that is a domain controller and DNS server, as well as an smtp server.

The domain is named companyname.com.
The website is, you guessed it, companyname.com.

Now why they set this up like this, I don't know, but because they have, every now and then, the DNS server decides to point companyname.com to the domain controller, and ignore the fact that I have a www Host(A) record pointing to the web server's external IP address, and a record saying that companyname.com should also point to the web server's address.

The problem seems to stem from that when the server reboots for updates... it of course forces the DNS server records to update, and it puts an entry in there that contradicts my static records, with the domain controller's local address in for companyname.com

Can I force it NOT to put a certain entry in there, or rather not update a certain entry that it has in there?
Or can I force it to treat my static records as primary?

I'm fairly new to this, as I've not dealt with this issue before... and I'm out of ideas.
 

A:DNS server pointing to domain controller instead of website address

Hmm; for the External DNS accessible to the web

create a CNAME for www.company.name
create another for dns.company.name.
each pointing to unique IP addresses
this dns ONLY supports publicly available services; NOTHING internal

the Domain Controller should have a SEPARATE DNS, internal to the LAN, not accessible to the Web.
Internal users configured to -> internal DNS which performs recursive lookup to your ISP's DNS.

OK I have a winxpsp2 machine. It tells me on boo that windows/system32/config/system is missing or corrupt.

So I boot of the install cd (retail full owned license) and tried to repair but it did not show up as installed. (which is wierd) so I installed winxp in a secondary folder windows2

Now it is up and running on a new install, I ran diskcheck, but I think that this problem might be solved by sfc.exe right? If so how can I point it to the orignal install folder instead of the current running?

Thanks!

KieranMullen

A:Pointing Sfc.exe To A Folder?

Can you boot to the first installation and then run sfc /scannow? It seems you should get a choice of which instance of Windows you want to boot to when you boot up. You should get a booting screen asking you which instance you want, and if you make no choice then one of the two will be chosen for you, or defaulted to.Of course, after going through all of these steps, why not just wipe the drive and reinstall Windows again?

I usually try to fix these things myself but I don't even know where to begin searching on Google...

I was playing Mass Effect 2 (game) last night and the nvidia4 driver crashed (second time it's happened overall from this game...). I closed as many apps as I could, then told Windows to reboot. On rebooting, disk check ran and decided to delete about 12 files (it might have done other things, not sure). When I got back into Windows, all my preferences were gone and I realized that a new set of "Documents and Settings" files were created (called "Owner.MASTRPC", mastrpc is the name of the computer on my network) and even though Windows automatically logs in as "Owner" as usual, it points to that new folder instead of the usual "Owner" folder.

So basically all my preferences, shortcuts and passwords are gone, everything looks like a fresh install, and there are a ton of other inconveniences. Thankfully, the files from my Owner account are still on my hard drive. I think I need to point Windows to the correct Documents and Settings folder (Owner instead of Owner.MASTRPC).

Also, a second new account (ASP.NET) was created, which I've since deleted. But now I think that might have been from Windows Update awhile back. Not exactly sure what that's for.

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

If I disable "search from address bar" in IE9, attempting to visit http://uncg.edu results in a 404 error. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, however, works fine. I can omit the subdomain from some websites (such as http://sevenforums.com), but others simply won't allow me to. Also, http://uncg.edu simply opens a search engine if I have "search from address bar" enabled.

A:Any way to force IE9 to assume a subdomain?

I think that it depends on what data is stored by DNS servers for that address. This in turn depends on the information provided to them by webmasters. Perhaps John (z3r010) might be the one to ask here, as all 3 of his sites exhibit this behaviour.

Hi guys!

I have question regarding when to use subdomain and when to use A record under main domain?

e.g. I have main domain ABCD.com. I want to create record EFGH.ABCD.com that points to IP address 1.2.3.4. From my point of view I have to options:

1) Create host A record under main domain ABCD.com that points to the IP address 1.2.3.4 - host (A) record EFGH.ABCD.com=>1.2.3.4

2) Create EFGH as subdomain of main domain ABCD.com and then under that subdomain create host A record (without Name field) that points to IP address 1.2.3.4

If I create EFGH record as subdomain of main domain ABCD.com I can have separate MX, NS, SOA... records but if I create my record as host A record under main domain then MX, NS, SOA records from main domain are used.



The question is when to use records as host A records and when to use it as subdomain of a main domain?

A:How to Share a drive/folder on a domain

All you should need to do is share the folder and set appropriate permissions. Remember that there are 2 sets of permissions, that of the share and the NTFS permissions of the folder itself. The effective permissions will be the most restrictive of the two. Usually permissions would be assigned to a group, not an individual account.

Hi all,

Something a bit curious...wondering why when I configure a system, the username folder in C:\Users has two:
username and username.domain.

My guess is that when I first start configuring the system, it asks for the user of the system, I input the user, THEN when the computer is added to the domain, a new folder is created with the username, but with the domain appended.

Soooo, can I safely remove one of them, or should I leave them alone?

On my Windows 7 Client Computer I want to Share one particular folder, but not with "Everybody". Instead I just want to share the Folder with one colleague - Brendon.

As you can see above I have given Brendon complete access to the Share!

Additionally in the Security Settings I gave Brendon complete access - like so;

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

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
i.e. the settings are not preserved.

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:
"However In Win 8, the registry changes are verified by a hash (unique per user and app)  that detects tampering by apps. In the absence of a valid hash, we ignore the default in the registry."
Currently deleting the UserChoice key for all a... Read more

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

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.

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.

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?
