Join Domain

Hi All,

I just join my desktop to domain, so I dont need to enter a login name and password when I want access to our server. Sometimes I don't on my desk and leave my PC, when I come back, I try to access to server again, it ask me login name and password, this mean that I dont in domain! Why the connection (join domain) lose?

You have asked a VERY COMPLICATED question that I think you thought was rather simple.  Basically authentication EXPIRES depending on your network configuration.  Here's the very complicated overview:  http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/windowsserver2003/technologies/security/constdel.mspx

I would need to know a bit more about each of the operating systems and other network configuration to give you advice on how to correct the problem.

Jeff,

Depending on my network configuration? Above link infor really "Complicated".

Our network is quite simple, we have 32 users, 22 PCs are windows98, others are Win2k and WinXP. I have configure server as domain controller, all Win98 PCs join into domain. I haven't join the Win2k and WinXP yet, I just use my PC join domain first, but facing a problem I have mentioned just now (above question).

Server:
IP Address: 192.168.123.252
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.123.254

DNS Server: 192.168.123.254
Alternate: 165.21.83.100

My PC:
IP Address: 192.168.123.177
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.123.254

DNS Server: 192.168.123.254
Alternate: 165.21.83.100

Sorry, I had lost track of this question...

The initial problem was due to attempting to join Windows 98 computers to a Win2K3 domain.  While this is not a recommended practice (Win98 doesn't support most of NT's security features) it is possible.  See this KB for more info:  http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;555038
