Yes, you're right, but the dhcp configuration wasn't changed in the
night after the restoration...I haven't yet understood what happened and
I hope someone could help me finding what caused that.

Thank you

Roberto

>> Hi all.
>>
>> Last thursday I've had to restore my customer's pdc from an hdd failure,

>> clients, rejoining all of them to the domain.
>> Next morning the customer called me saying that nothing was working, I
>> looked the server from remote without finding failures and then I went
>> there: I found that clients couldn't find the pdc and I struggled with
>> name resolution, but I didn't get the system up until I put the server's
>> ip address in the WINS servers list in each client's TCP/IP configuration.
>> Can someone tell me what could cause this strange issue? I must say that
>> the server wasn't shut down the thursday evening, only clients were.
>> What can I do to restore the working state without having to manually
>> set the WINS server in each client?
>>
>> Thank you in advance.
