Edit DNS records using VPN

Postby fraser » Tue Jul 26, 2011 6:39 am

Is it possible to edit the DNS records on a remote computer using VPN? I can not login to my servers using remote desktop just now so the only way to connect is by using VPN.

any help would be appreciated

Sure. Many administrators manage their DNS or server from their workstations. Depends on your OS, you may install Administarion Tools on the workstation.

I have Windows Server 2008 on the servers and the desktop PC I'm trying to connect to the servers is using Windows 7 Pro. What DOS or powershell commands work?

I've installed the Administration Tools. When connecting to a DNS server in DNS manager an error message appears saying "Access was denied".

I assume you would get a system error if you run net view \\dcservername. If yes, what's the system error code? Or you may want to review these pages:

The net view command works. It's not just DNS Manager what's not connecting. When connecting to Server Manager I receive the below error message:-

Connecting to remote server failed with the following error message: The client cannot connect to the destination specified in the request. Verify that the service on the destination is running and is accepting requests. Consult the logs and documentation for the WS-Management service running on the destination, most commonly IIS or WinRM. If the destination is the WinRM service, run the following command on the destination to analyze and configure the WinRM service: "winrm quickconfig"

I still believe it is credentials issue. Could you please post these command results here:
net view \\dcservername.
set

Note: run these command on the windows 7 computer.

I wish you use host name instead of IP address when you run net view command. The reason is simple. If we can net view using ip but name, then it is name resolution issue. If we can use name to net view the DCserver, then it could be permission issue.

Can I also assume the computer hasn't join the domain? I need to test if we can access DNS manager without joining the domain.

The shares are displayed when using net view with the host name. Both client and server computers are not in a domain.

I'm dual booting Windows XP on the same computer as Windows 7. I installed Windows Server 2003 Administration Tools Pack on Windows XP. Connecting to the DNS manager on the remote server works. But still doesn't work on Windows 7.

Since this is domain network, make sure both server and client have the same password for the administrator account and logon administrator on the client.
