How to configure web site domain name linking & fns etc!

Q: How to configure web site domain name linking & fns etc!

fns should read dns in title...
I am about to loose my website space which my internet provider supplied including my domaine name & the associated linking. I just cannot figure out how to setup another "supplier". Our phone company (Bell) decided to terminate that service. I have a site that gives me the linking from my domain name to my "real" email address. But with all the technical issues associated with the linking etc I'm lost! Is there somewhere I can go to learn the ins & outs of changing dns so my domain name gets linked correctly and ends up in my mailbox. The variables associated with this just blows my mind. I've used a domaine name for 20 years or more but never had to "mess" very much with it... Help please!

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

Yeah it can be tricky to setup email forwarding right. Have a look at FreeDNS - http://freedns.afraid.org/. That service may help you.

Also check out this article on how to use outlook.com to host your domain email

There's google apps, it used to be free, but now costs $5/mth, which still isn't too bad

And just doing a quick google, I found this site which has some more suggestions.

Hope that helps.

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?

Hi All,
I'm new to techguy so please be gentle with me!
We run an antiquated windows 2000 server with accounting software that uses Pervasive SQL. We're installing a new server running Windows 2008 Standard R2 and moving our accounting to a new software provider. In the transitional phase I need access to both accounts software packages for a period of 4-6months; the old server will then be decommissioned. Unfortunately, our version of Pervasive will not run on Windows 2008, so I'm stuck with both servers in the interim. Workstations are running Windows XP Pro. The 2008 server has been set up with a different domain name to the original. How do I give users access to both domain servers? Is it possible to seamlessly access both servers, assuming that workstations are logged in through the new server? I am computer competent but have very limited knowledge of domain servers; but I learn real fast!
Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

I have run into an issue that I just can't seem to figure out. I will explain in detail below.
Thanks in advance for any productive suggestions or tips.

I am currently working for a company that have 5 existing websites. They changed the systems and now all the website files exist on cloud server hosted by Microsoft Azure.
The domain names were bought from www.cheapdomains.com.au. I have set up the A records on the registrars account and added the server names.
Now, I am told that I need to set up zones and www A records with the DNS management service.
These were my only instructions on how to accomplish this.

No they are Windows 2012 r2 Servers. So you need to start the DNS Management Service and create the zones.

Primary Zone for DLMVM1 and Secondary Zone DLMVM2.

You will also need to create www A records for the domains.

Then create websites in IIS on DLMVM1 including the http bindings.

Each 5 websites already have domain names associated with them.
I was told that you could link more domain names to certain websites. I am very new to all this so any and all information of relevance would be of help.

Thanks in advance

Hi everyone,
I'm unable to configure WinRM on a domain computer. I have a simple domain with

1) Windows server 2012
2) A client running Windows 7

If I try to run WinRM on the local Administrator, everything works fine, but if I switch to a domain user, than problems occured.

For example, if i run winrm quickconfig in powershell as the domain Administrator, then I get:

WinRM already is set up to receive requests on this machine.
    Message = WinRM cannot process the request. The following error occured while using Negotiate authentication: An unknown security error occurred.
 Possible causes are:
  -The user name or password specified are invalid.
  -Kerberos is used when no authentication method and no user name are specified.
  -Kerberos accepts domain user names, but not local user names.
  -The Service Principal Name (SPN) for the remote computer name and port does not exist.
  -The client and remote computers are in different domains and there is no trust between the two domains.
 After checking for the above issues, try the following:
  -Check the Event Viewer for events related to authentication.
  -Change the authentication method; add the destination computer to the WinRM TrustedHosts configuration setting or use

 Note that computers in the TrustedHosts list might not be authenticated.

So, I looking to make and host my own website.

I have a few issues...
I'm not quite sure on what exactly I need to do. The creating the web page is easy. I'll use More Motion to create it. I am unsure on the server/ software or whatever.

Any suggestions on the software I should download for hosting?

Also, is it possible to get a domain name that isn't just numbers for free?

Please tell me any technical issues as well. Thank you.

A:Domain Name/ Web Site

If you want to host your own website on your own network you are going to need a few things.

1) A domain. You are better off buying a domain then trying to screw around with getting one for free. I love GoDaddy.
2) You will need someone to do DNS for you. If you don't have a Static IP address, I suggest you use NO-IP.
3) You will need to decide what web server software and operating system you want to use. The two most popular Web Servers are IIS and Apache. IIS only runs on Windows. Apache can run on Windows and Linux.

If you think you are going to be doing any ASP, then stick with IIS. I personally feel Apache has more fucntionality then IIS but that is just my personal opinion.

This thread would be better served in the Web Development forum.

I have recently posted a huge free web site with geocities, (my first one!) and my company has it's own domain name. I was wondering if there was anyway that I can change it over to a simple address using our own domain name, and do I have to start over? if you want to look first, it is http://www.geocities.com/hcamgmt Thank you!

A:changing a free web site to my domain name

You will need to host your domain name. Some sites that register the names can also host them. I will say that you can get free hosting from http://www.netfirms.com, but they place a banner on every page, and lately have pop-ups as well. The good thing is that host your the domain as http://www.yourname.com, as opposed to what geocities does. they also have a good email aliasing service, so that yoou can designate a specific email address as the receiver, such as [email protected], and then, any mail that is sent to [email protected] will be sent directly to [email protected]

Another good thing is that you can go banner free for $5/ month.

You can also go here for a search of hosts in the US and Canada.
Once your domain name is hosted, then just upload all the files that you created, which you have hopefully kept on your system. If not, then connect to geocities FTP, and download the files you have there, and then just upload them to the new FTP site.

I've got to set up a new domain controller for a remote site here and was wondering if anybody knows of any pitfalls of setting it up here as another domain controller and then later just changing it's ip to the subnet of the remote site and moving it in site configuration?

It's a 2003 Active Directory.

A:Domain Controller change of ip and site?

I have heard (but not seen, admittedly...) that you can change domains, sites and probably trees (can anyone confirm this?).

The best bet (that I know does work) is to demote your DC to a member server, then re-promote it to a DC through dcpromo.exe on your Windows Server CD. I don't know if it has a copy on your hard drive or not.

This is MCSE territory. It'd probably be best to wait for more knowledgable folk to respond.

In the meantime, a handy little website I know of is this: http://www.petri.co.il/. It was a handy resource to have during my studies at TAFE here in Oz (I suppose it would be the equivalent of a community college) doing Network Management. Hope it helps.

Hello all,
what i want to try and do is as follows -
I have a site with 4 PC's that connect to the domain using dial up to receive email etc.
They are set up as a work group with no server to authenticate user names etc.
They have static ip addresses, while the rest of the network ( 2 other sites linked by broadband vpn) use dhcp. They recieve an ip address from the domain when they dial up which matches the rest of the domain. IS THE NEXT SECTION POSSIBLE? AND IF SO HOW WOULD I SET IT UP?

I have a 2000 server which i am going to install on the dial up site to store data (give them home directories etc) and authentication.

can i use a modem (analog) to connect this 2000 server to the rest of the network (NT4 and 2000 servers) to get wins, dns, dhcp etc? how would i set this up?

is it possible that, if i can make the connection between the 2 sites with dial up, can i also use this to get the 4 users emails. i currently use offline files and syncronizing for their emails. this causes problems as they have 2 lines(2 machines sharing 1 line)
and they've got this habit of knocking each other offline!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey all.

Well, my problem is rather complicated it seems.

My internet connection works 110% fine but I cannot access my own website. Now, the domain is there and works because I've contacted about 10 or so people and everyone can access my site just fine. I've gone to two different friend's houses and, again, everything works fine and I can get on my site AND access my control panel. I've even talked with my host which is http://www.surpasshosting.com and they've also assured me that everything is up and running. They've even told me to check if I could connect to my site via the proxy site anonymouse.org and I was able to see my site!

So, everything is fine on the domain/host side.

I've contacted my ISP and everything works great on their side as well. They've even helped me checked if my computer was blocking the particular site and it wasn't. We even tried disabling my firewall to see if that was the problem and nothing. I still can't connect.

I'm trying to connect to the particular site on the following browsers and it won't work on any of them:

Recently, when my ISP had a power problem, I decided to setup a mirror site on another ISP. I updated my dns entries at my registrar correctly (1 and 2 were my primary ISP, no change there). I added the correct servers for my mirror in positions 3 and 4.

Somehow, the internet is selecting the mirror site. When I ping, I always get the mirror site. The registrar (aplus.net) checked my entries, and says everything is fine on their end. Both ISP's (primary and mirror) say everything is OK at their end. No one seems to have an answer.

Two pieces of information: My primary ISP says that some tier 2 companies do not have the ability to force a domain sequence. But I thought the internet always went to the first server in the list; if no response, it went to second name, and so forth.

Second, from the website DNSreport , I ran a report and it shows multiple errors for my website (pmtrainingmaster). Some are: lame name servers and missing name servers. I have no idea what that means, since my registrar does have the correct name servers.

Can someone explain what is going on, and how I can safely eliminate the mirror site entirely and go back to only one ISP? Thanks very much -- any help will be greatly appreciated.

A:Domain name problem - internet goes to mirror site, not the primary

Clear your browser cache. The changes are not always immidiate either once you make the change. They do not always go to the order they are on the registrars listing, in some cases the shortest route is taken.

I have the latest version of ATA - 1.9.7312.32791
I have deployed ATA Lightweight Gateway to many domain controllers throughout my organisation from exactly the same "Microsoft ATA Gateway setup.exe" with accompanying .json file in the same folder.

Nearly all the Domain Controllers have been Windows Server 2016 Core with a quiet install via command line.
The installation has worked perfectly with the exception of two domain controllers on the same physical subnet/site.
The installation error code in the log is:
Error [\[]TaskAwaiter[\]] System.Net.Http.HttpRequestException: An error occurred while sending the request. ---> System.Net.WebException: The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send. ---> System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SecurityTokenValidationException:
Failed to validate certificate thumbprint [\[]thumbprint=FC78E602AA1E8BF57CC2270E81788E5ADC511DF4[\]]

Seeing as every other installation worked fine, I suspect something must be blocking or interfering with the certificate being successfully negotiated back at the ATA centre
The likelyhood if being an error with the JSON file is extremely small as the failures occurred in the middle of the installation program, with successful implementations either side of the two that failed.

What can I get the network team to check regarding firewalls, network traffic or blocked ports?

Has anyone seen similar?

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

What happens:

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:

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.

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

i have changed the domain of the computer (from say old.net to new.net).
there is a folder shared on another machine on old.net domain. the user X was able to access it. aftter changing his domain from old.net to new.net he no longer can access that shared folder.
User X has working credentials for both domains.

on accessing it it asks for credentials. upon entering his correct user name in the format (old.net\X) he is not able to access it.

i had exactly same setup with another user Y and he was able to access data .

is there anything that i am missing ?

also accessing that folder first time asked for credentials but now it doesnt asks .. why ? there is nothign in credentials manager.


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


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.

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

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.

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 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.


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.

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)?

Can I access a network share on the domain with a non-domain computer? I would connect the computer directly to the corporate network. 
For what reasons could this be blocked (firewall? policy? settings on server-side?) and what configuration is needed to make sure it is possible to access a network share with a non-domain computer?
Thanks already for your help!

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???

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!

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?


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

A:Oops! my active directory domain is the same as an actual web domain.
