Uninstalling the client on a DC
Created: 19 Jan 2008 | Updated: 22 May 2010 | 2 comments
I installed Symantec End Point client on a domain controller. The domain controller wasn't responding to ping requests (even by IP address). Windows firewall was switched off. I found the Symantec firewall was blocking incoming traffic (outgoing traffic was fine, ie I could ping other ip addresses from this DC). through Add/remove programs I uninstalled Network Protection on the DC as well as application protection (it was a requirement to uninstall it when uninstalling network protection). As the DC still wasn't responding to ping requests I rebooted it. Once the DC was rebooted I could not log on to it anymore. I am a member of domain admins.
I performed the same operation on a member server and had no problems.
Does anyone know anything about this problem?
Any help would be appreciated.
