XP Client cannot join a domain due to time server problems
Posted on 2004-03-24
I have a DNS w/ AD running at home. Each pc, including this XP client, is addressable by other PCs on the network via ping. I can even surf to the web pages on the Win 2003 SBS (which is the DNS server). When I try to have the XP client join the domain, I get problems. Don't know where to start. I need to have authentication for security.
I currently have the XP PC set to use the domain, but when I try to login using the domain, I get the date time synch error. So in reading some of the articles, it appears I may need a timeserver. I think the one currently used by Xp is time.windows.com.
What does anyone suggest? Please keep in mind I may need specific directions on how to perform the steps you ask me.
In advance, thank you.
