Win2k Clients cannot see/log onto Win2k Domain
Posted on 2001-08-15
I have a Win2k Advanced Server machine with Win98 and Win2k machines trying to log on to it. At the log in screen on the Windows 98 machines, I put in the username, password and domain and I can log in with no problems.
The Win2k machines, however, are giving me a problem. I try to add the machine to a domain, by going to START > SETTINGS > CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > NETWORK IDENTIFICATION > PROPERTIES and then clicking on the DOMAIN button and adding the name of the domain. After hitting OK, it asks me for a username and password. I put in the username and password of a user with an account on the server (This user can properly log on from a Win98 machine), but then it asks me for the username and password of a user with permissions to join this domain. I put in the domain administrator name and password. Then I get a message saying "The following error occured trying to join domain 'workgroup' The network path was not found."
I am not sure what could be wrong, since the Win98 machines are logging on correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
