Win2000 DNS - domain controller issue
Posted on 2003-02-25
Trying to register a WinXPPro machine to the domain, and getting errors back saying:
The domain name xyz might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.
If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.
DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain xyz:
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.xyz
The following domain controllers were identified by the query:
(no domain controllers found)
Common causes of this error include:
- Host (A) records that map the name of the domain controller to its IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.
- Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.
Most of it I can probably get a workaround with through LMHOSTS and NetBeui and the like... but no domain controllers found?
