Hey Guys, So here is my situation,
i am fairly new to networking, i was tasked with setting up a server as DC and the appropriate roles, like DHCP, DNS, as well as a 2nd server as the file server. The server came with Server 2012..
So, virtualization being the way to go, i enabled the Hyper V role on the Sever, and then of course created 1 VM.
Silly me created only a VM for the File Server, i called it "XXXServer3"
The host name was "XXX-Server1" (notice the naming scheme is slightly different, this one has a dash).
The host, i also gave it the role of Primary DC (Sigh*), DHCP, DNS.
I got a problem where i was unable to access the file server via UNC. I checked spiceworks forum, and i was educated on how having roles running on the host was a bad idea and stuff. So i created a 2nd VM. Called it "XXXServer1" and enabled the same roles that the host was doing. Recreated the DHCP range etc etc. DHCP works fine, no problem.
Active directory users Synced over, no problem.
CRAZY ME went and thought , alright, everything SEEMS synced over. Time to demote the host, so i went ahead and removed the roles, as well as changed the computer name for "XXX-Server1" to "XXX-HVS", whose only roles at the moment is Hyper V.
I have this terrible problem with Group Policy.(note that it was working perfectly before i moved the primary DC off the Hyper V host), now, when i edit policys, and run gpupdate on the client, i get the error in the attached file.
Please help ~ i understand its looking for something that it cannot find, but i dont understand what exactly its looking for and how to help it find it. Im sure the answer is right there in the error, but i just for some reason cant see it
