Can not connect to the server 2003 domain from the vista client

  1. Hello,
    I am having problems remotley administering my domain. I am using a vista computer to administer my domain remotely. When I try to open the domain users and computers appalet I get the message that says " naming information can not be located ...". I know that DNS is running (maybe not correctly) and that my computer logged on to the domain. DNS is the only thing that I can think as the problem. I can log onto OWA by typing in the ip address but I can not use the admin tools. Please help

    Thank You

    Well, how about fixing the DNS? Without working DNS, you can pretty much forget about doing anything with AD.

    you can test a DNS using NSLOOKUP %foo%, where
    %foo% is an IP address or a domain name​
    first use the IP address form; it should return the domain.name.
    then try the domain name and it should return the same ip address
