  • 1.  Infrastructure Deploy to OU on severals AD

    Posted 22 days ago
    Hi All,
    the customer has integrated his DM with 2 active directories called "PROD" and "NOPROD". These 2 AD are not trusted between them.
    The dns domains are also different: ".prod.local" for AD "PROD" and ".noprod.local" for AD "NOPROD".
    So for the PROD domain the FQDN of the computers is COMPUTER.prod.local, while for the computers of the NOPROD domain it is COMPUTER.noprod.local. The DM is in the AD "PROD" and its FQDN is ITCA-DM.prod.local.

    He executes the deploy wizard on the OU computers of the PROD domain, the same as the DM, with success.

    The problem arises when using the deployment wizard to install the Agent on the computers located in the OUs of the "NOPROD".
    In fact, when the deployment wizard runs on the OU computers of the domain: "NOPROD", the result of the SCAN returns the "Unknown" status for all computers.
    The dmdeploy extracts the computer names from the OU list and tries to contact them using the computer name without success.
    Now the question is whether it is possible to configure the DM so that the SCAN function uses the FQDN instead of the computer name.

    Thanks in advance
    Alessandro

    Hi Alessandro,

    If DNS is configured correctly on the DM then you should be able to ping computers in both AD's by hostname.

    In this example the two computers are in different domains, one being the same as the DM.


    What do you see for ping and nslookup for both computers?

    Rgds,
    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    thanks for you reply.
    I collect ping and nsllokup from 1 computer on the prod.local domain, the same of the DM, and from 1 computer on the noprod.local domain.

    This is a computer from domain "prod.local"
    C:\>ping wksprod-13

    Address: 192.168.10.200


    As you can see, for noprod computer ping and nslookup using computername is not found while it is found if using FQDN.

    Thanks and regards,
    Alessandro

    Hi Alessandro,

    Try adding the "noprod.local" to the DNS suffix section of the Advanced TCP/IP settings on the DM

    Hi Steve,

    thanks for you reply, adding suffixes the scan resolves the computernames.
