Scenario: Windows NT Domain, Windows NT 4 domain controller, Windows XP Professional clients, all on the same subnet (same physical and logic subnet).
Everything works fine; all clients can logon to the domain, browse the domain and access shared folders on the domain controller.
THEN some clients are moved to another subnet (different physical and logic subnet).
It is still required that those clients logon to the domain and access shared folders on the domain controller, but there is no WINS server in place.
So I have employed, on each client, the LMHOSTS file, formatted according to this MS KB article:
and I have enabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP on each client.
The clients can't logon to the domain and can't access shared folders. "The path to the domain controller can't be found".
There are no firewalls in place, just for testing. The domain controller responds to ICMP ping. The domain controller is recording accesses on ports 138/udp, 139/tcp and 445/tcp. Yet it is not possible to logon.
Help appreciated!!! It's urgent
