Problem adding NT Member Server to NT Domain
Posted on 1997-11-17
We have a NT network with a PDC (NT 3.51) and a BDC (NT 4.0) and have been trying to add a NT Member server (NT 4.0) to the domain as well. It doesn't however seem to have joined the domain successfully. A computer
account was added for it in the Server Manager of the PDC (the icon for it is not greyed out) but when you click on its name in the Server Manager a dialogue box appears with the message:
STOP: The trust relationship between this workstation and the Primary Domain failed.
We have tried deleting the account and establishing it again but we always get the same message.
Also we cannot log on to the NT Member server from any other machine in the domain. We see its name in the Network Neighbourhood list but when we
click on it we get a dialogue box with the message:
Enter Network Password
You must supply a password to make this connection.
Voyager is the name of the NT Member Server. This dialogue box does not give us the chance to enter a Login name. Its getting very frustrating as we want to access resources on this machine over the network. The network is running the following protocols:
The NT Member Server also runs as our Web Server with IIS 2.0 without any problems.
We have been trying to solve this problem for some time without success. The same problem applies whether the BDC is switched on or not. If anyone
has any suggestions I would be grateful for them.
