Can't join a Windows NT domain from a Windows XP machine
Posted on 2004-07-31
Helllo , I get the following message when I try to join a Windows NT domain.
the domain name " " 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.
the following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain VENETECHGROUP:
The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain.
I am working on a small project with a test environment one NT domain and a couple of XP machines. The NT domain is a PDC running WINS . Do I need to be running DNS internally as well ? I am connecting via DSL to my ISP for internet access
I can ping the server by IP address and by NETbios name.
Thanks for your help !
