Windows 2003 can't join NT domain
Posted on 2004-04-16
my network is comprised of an NT4 PDC (sp6a), several Win2k, and Win98 on the same domain and a standalone windows 2003 srv... Currently we are not running DNS or WINS or AD on 2003.
My problem is I can not join the NT4 domain... I can ping the address of the PDC and I can access any share on the server. I can't seem to resolve the name though.
I have tried to add it the hosts and lmhosts files on both servers... and nothing. For the life of me I can't seem to add it to the domain...
Right now the 2003 machine is in its own workgroup (with the same subnet as everything else)
Here is the error message I get when trying to add it.

If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain proserv:
The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
