Cannot Join Domain
Posted on 2004-04-14
We have a 20 workstation network. All the workstations are WIN2K pro
computers and the server is a WIN 2K server with active directory/DHCP/DNS.
Most of the computers login to the domain, 'xxx.net', but four of the workstations
access a workgroup. The problem is that I cannot get these computers to
join the domain. Whether I use control panel/system or netdom, the error
message I get is 'The specified domain either does not exist or it could not
If I go up to a computer which can log into the domain and change it it to
workstation access, restart the computer and then try to change it back to a
domain, it cannot make the switch back.
We can use the internet, ping everything, map network drives, but not get workstations to join the domain.
- Server has active directory runnning.
- DHCP / DNS is running on the server.
- There are no routers.
- All workstations are cabled into a switch.
- All computers already members of the domain work fine.
Any ideas will be appreciated.
