    Hi All,

    As a developer veteran and using you amazing tutorials I believed I could setup Active Directory by myself in our company network but I couldn’t.

    Network:


    5 Win7 desktops + 1 WinServer 2008 R2 connected to a switch connected to a DSL modem. The DSL modem is also connected to the printer.

    What I did:


    I followed meticulously these pre-requisites and instructions on your website:

    1) Active Directory on Windows Server 2008 Requirements
    2) Installing Active Directory on Windows Server 2008

    What happens:


    I cannot ping neither 192.168.101.1 nor mycompany.local from Win7 clients. Running ipconfig /all on the client I get 192.168.1.18 and DHCP enabled.

    I discovered that probably the problem is the different IP class but I don’t know if I need to modify the server or the client one, and – even more important – what are the pros and cons of modifying one or the other. In addition the router already has the IP 192.168.1.1

    I am sure that for you all, these is a very easy scenario: please help me!

    Thanks in advance and my best compliments for your amazing tutorials on Windows Server 2008.

    Alberto
