Can't get site to come up, possible AD confusion.

  Asked By: Kari    Date: Apr 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 573

At my office we have an older Windows 2000 Server that is our domain
controller. It also hosts our sharepoint intranet. Most of our
servers are Novell. Earlier this year we got a new server that I
installed Windows 2003 Server on and my intention was to set up
sharepoint on this server from scratch and just copy what I needed
from the other server. The sharepoint on there isn't set up correctly
and I didn't want to transfer all of its problems to the new server.
When I first set up the 2003 server and joined it to the domain
everything seemed to be working fine except that when I installed
sharepoint services it never recognized any of the user accounts that
exist on the DC. I don't know if I left something out or what. So
when I have tried to create a site on sharepoint and put a user that
exists in the domain as the owner I get and error that the user does
not exist. I finally managed to get it to let me create a site, but
when I try to access it from another computer via web browser I get
"Service Unavailable." What am I doing wrong???

Look at this things first:

Did you set up this Sharepoint server for Active directory authentication?

Are you setting up wss or portal? Portal has the ability to point at a specific Domain controller. Have you configured import of profiles?

Have you checked your dns settings on the new server? (I find a static ip address and DNS works best for me). Make sure the DNS on your servers network card is correct.

What mode is your (mixed) Domain running?

Is there a router that could be blocking port traffic between the 2003 server and the Domain.

I am using wss.

I didn't know that I needed to set up sharepoint for AD
authentication. Where are the settings for that? Does Wss have an
option for importing profiles too, or just portal?

My DNS settings should be correct and I don't think that the router
would be blocking it, but I will double check.

I don't know what you mean, but what mode is my domain running?
