Viewing domain users

I have a 2000 server with Terminnal Server activated.
I would like to make  a share on this Server, but when I get to the permissions area and go to look of a domain group it come up with this message.
 
The specified domain either doesnt exist or could not be contacted.

I can connect to the existing c$ d$ shares on this server from another pc .
I can login as any user on are domain.
I can browes any pc on are network from this server.

any help would be good

Thanks
Steve

When you create users do you use Active Directory Users and Computers or User Manager for Domains?

Are you operating in a Windows NT 4.0 Domain then? I would assume that you are since you are using User Manager for Domains to add users but wanted to make sure.

Your WINS services may be corrupt - rebuild it.

Another possibility (experienced this first hand) someone may have setup a linux box running samba on your network.  If they did, they may have told it to act as a domain controller.  This would create the same problem you just had.
