Do you know where in the SBS 2003 box I would go to remove any reference to
the new server's IP address? If I disjoin the domain, and I go to the SBS
2003 box and ping the 192.168.1.11 address, it still tries to locate the
FQDN address of the new 2008 server even though it doesn't belong to the
domain. So, since I'm not a OS guy, where would I go to remove all
references to the 192.168.1.11 address that was used by the new 2008 server?
I went under the DNS application and anything that had the 192.168.1.11
address I deleted. But it still seems to want to resolve the name (I
originally named the new 2008 server has follows when I joined the sbs
We have some new routes that another company installed and maintains.
This was done to handle our new T1 Phone Lines. This same equipment is now
used for data. Anyway, it appears that after a complete reinstall of the
2008 OS on the new server, I noticed that the box gets the following
addresses assigned to the NIC card:
IP address 192.168.101.36
DNS 184.108.40.206 (free dns)
with these setting I can get out to the Internet and also ping the SBS box
via the 192.168.1.2
I changed the DNS to 192.168.1.2 for testing. When I go this, I can ping the
SBS box via the server name. I can also join the SBS domain without a
problem. After joining the domain, I can ping the SBS box with either the IP
address or FQDN.
Now, if I assign the IP addresses on the NIC card in the 2008 server to :
IP address 192.168.1.11
and leave the DNS at 192.168.1.2
With this change, I can not ping the SBS box or even get out to the
Internet. Even after Disabling all the firewalls on the 2008 server.

After changing it, does it resolve when you try to ping, but you just don't
How about nslookup? Does that work when trying go resolve something,
anything, - try resolving the SBS server FQDN, as well as something
outside, such as www.intel.com
It's starting to sound like the SBS domain GPO firewall, or the .11 address
is in conflict with something else being used. What is the current DHCP
