As this customer has Direct Access deployed I knew I had to start my troubleshooting with the following command: netsh dns show state As you can tell from the screenshot above, the laptop thinks it’s outside the corporate network and has Direct Access configured and enabled.I tried pinging various resources (on the domain) but they all failed.reboot and your computer pulls down the latest version of GPO.
Delete the "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies" Key. No internet connection is required for this solution, but the link needs to be up, and it needs to have an IP address. If you are still logging into an account that was used while it was on the domain, chances are it hasnt been removed from the domain.Run a gpupdate /force three times and restart workstation. Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?A while ago I go I looked into a laptop not being able to access anything on the network.However this was an isolated case as no other clients were showing similar issues…The reason name resolution and thereby all other domain related tasks are failing is the fact that the Direct Access name resolution policies are in place and force all DNS requests for the domain zone to be resolved by the Direct Access DNS service.
