The client installed Windows SBS 2003 with DNS and WINS and joined
all workstations’ to the domain successfully. They also added a mapping to
SBS_LOGIN_SCRIPT.bat. When logon the server, the script work fine. However,
when logon workstations, the script doesn’t’ run no matter who’s logon.
1. The server have correct DNS and WINS settings.
The clients can access the Internet and any LAN
When using ping –a Ip address, it reply with NetBIOS
name only. That means that the clients use WINS as name resolution for LAN
On any client, Nslookup points to the ISP DNS. That
is the problem.
Problem: all workstations use router DHCP server
with ISP DNS.
Resolutions: Enable DHCP with the internal DNS on
the SBS. Or assign the internal DNS to the router. So, all workstations
use the internal DNS instead of ISP DNS.
