TOPIC: AD question

AD question 11 years 9 months ago #21193

quick question.

my company just opened a new office at a remote location.

main is
remote is

when I connect to the remote office, im of course assigned a 3. ip address. at this point when I attempt to syncronize my offline files with the active directory server, it prompts me for a username and password even though I've already logged into the machine which is part of the domain. if I attempt to connect to any of the file shares in the main office it prompts me for a username and password.

am I missing a setting somewhere that wil allow the remote office to connect and syncronize? shouldnt the AD server already recognize the machine since its part of the domain already?

Are you logging into the machine as part of the domain or do you have to log into the machine using a username/password off the machine ?

Do you have full connectivity from the remote site, is DNS, etc.. configured in order to be a part of the Active Directory from the remote office.

It sounds like you are not authenticating against the domain properly at the remove office.
