"The list of users and computers could not be found" error message during client network configuration in Windows Small Business Server 2003
Article ID: 837369 - View products that this article applies to.
When you follow these steps:
The list of users and computers could not be found on the server. Make sure that the Small Business Server network adapters are configured correctly.
This behavior generally occurs when the client computer is not configured to use the server that is running Windows SBS 2003 as the Domain Name System (DNS) server. All client computers on the Windows SBS 2003 network must use the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the internal network adapter on the server that is running Windows SBS for DNS resolution. You must not configure an alternative DNS IP address on the client computers. By doing so, you can cause connectivity issues and slow logon times.
To resolve this behavior, change the DNS settings on the client to point to the IP address of the internal network adapter on the server that is running Windows SBS 2003. Remove all other DNS entries.
