Can 't join to Active directory
Posted on 2005-04-22
Let's say the domain name is ABC.com. This windows server 2003 has Exchange 2003 & Active Directory. That server has public IP address
1. I am able to use exchange 2003 server thru control panel -> mail -> e-mail account -> add a new account -> Microsoft Exchange Server -> Put "Microsoft Exchange Server" and " "User name" then click "Check name " button. By this step, my laptop recognize where the mail server is.
That looks work for me.
2. Here my question ( I can't join to Active Directory)
I have Active Directory in the same server. I tried to join for the service thru My Computer (Right Click and Properties) -> Computer Name tap -> Network ID -> next -> "This computer is part of business network , and I use it to connect to other comuters at work " -> "My company uses a network with a domain " -> next -> put " user name", " password", and "domain" ---->
well! then it says "windows cannot find an account for your computer on the ABC(Let's say this is the domain name) domain.
When I try with ABC.com for the domain name, it show me same message.
And the next step is
->put "computer name" and computer "domain name " then click next -> "A domain controller for the domain ABC.com( or ABC ) couldn't be contacted Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly ->
If I click "Detail" button it show me this message
