Default Placing server 2003 in charge

I had a win server 2003 box running and it was in charge of my entire network including a linix mail server, a web server, file servers, etc. I was configuring a new win server 2003 as a test box, but somehow it seems to have taken charge of my network. Now I can only access my web sites while my new test box is on the network and it rejects all external IP addresses. How do I put my old server back in charge of everything so that I can access my web server without this new box on the network?

Alternately, how could I tell my new box to quit rejecting all requests from external IP addresses?

Default Re: Placing server 2003 in charge

That question is a bit all over the place. Are you still having the issue?

Presumably you built a new DC onto an existing domain? The first to do is run DCPROMO on your newly built server and demote it as a DC.

If you can let me know some more details, that would be great!
