Hi everyone,

I've a XP laptop that I'm trying to join a domain. I've 2k systems and the laptop will say that it is part of the workgroup and when I go to add it to the domain there seems to be a trust issue? Any help is greatly appreciated.

What's the error you're getting?
Are you using a DNS server?  Can you ping both the DNS and Domain controller?

It was something simple, something which I hadn't checked - the network point was patched into the wrong point. Sorry guys.

Hi,
"I've 2k systems and the laptop will say that it is part of the workgroup"
You should know that if you are to join a PC to a domain, it will automatically take itself out of the workgroup. So, i am kind of confused by your statement..

Check your event viewer for the exact error, and please report it back...
