Client Can't find WS2012E R2


Recommended Posts

From what I understand from the Server MVP group, this issue is quite common and is the fault of bad coding in 2012 R2 Essentials DNS. You can use all the solid best practices mentioned above, but eventually the issue will come back until there is a patch.

 

I was told that a few reboots will fix the issue. This is a poor answer. I hope a fix comes soon.

Quite right your DNS resolution is shot. Just use the IP address for the server instead of the name for now.   What's the IP address of the server and, more importantly, what DNS server is the Win 7

This all looks good as "localhost" should be the domain that replies.

 

do you have a client that is joined that you can run the same from?

 

Now, given this is a known issue, you my try hard coding the adapter to the DNS Entries for the server.

That's not good news John. I've re-booted a few times and still no luck.

I think I'm going to try the HTPC's MOBO NiC next - as I have an Intel GB card that I've been using for a fews years without issue....

 

Not sure what to try next.

 

Any suggestions on the server side Or Router Issue/config to look for??

 

Thanks

DHCP is coming from the router or server?  It appears to be the router.  Is the DHCP service running on the server?

Also, as it would seem obvious

 

I have a few services on the HTPC that do not start up automatically that should - posted SERVICES above.

Even after I manually start all the Windows Essential Services - same thing - Will not let me log-In through the LaunchPad & DashBoard & now the Green Icon is Brown (Not Connected)

It's coming from the router.

 

I haven't enabled it on the server (AFAIK)

No need to start service that don't need to be running.  If a Service is not set to Automatic, don't force it.

Not sure what I'm supposed to do? That thread is 9 months old. Seems like it should have been fixed? Maybe not
