new XP machine wont connect to 2000 server domain
Posted on 2004-11-22
I have supplied 3 new Xp machines that need to connect to an existing 2000 server domain. I have given them the same computer name as the PC's that I have taken off the network, but whenever I try to connect to the domain using the same user name and password, it says access not allowed.
If just set them up as a workgroup, using teh domain name, they work perfectly, you can access the server etc, you even have the old security rights, so the users only have the access they had before.
Am I missing something, do I need to set up new computer names on the server?
This is urgent.
