IN MY VIRTUALBOX VIRTUAL MACHINE: I had previously installed XP Service Pack 3 and Windows 2003 Server. I configured this server as a DC and other roles such as DNS...I created users who would login to the domain from the XP client machine. I set up group policies and file server, and all were working fine.
Recently, I removed 2003 Server and installed 2008 Server on the same virtual machine hard disk. I moved on to create the DC (with a different domain name) and other server roles. I created users from my Active Directory and set up group policies too. But, I realized that, when users log in to the server, the set group polices are not implemented. Furthermore, I realize that, when this user logs off from the Domain, that messagebox says "...offline files failed to synchronized to [servername]....", but, this [servername] which appears here, is the name of the OLD 2003 Server, not the present 2008.
Why is this user still appear as if connected to the old 2003 server?
I tried to change the client's computer name, no effect.
Any help please?
