Domain either does not exist or could not be contacted
Posted on 2006-05-01
I am running SBS 2003. I am trying to add a domain user to a local admin group. At the client PC (Windows 2000) I select the admin group, I browse to servername.local and see the user I want to add, I select the user, hit OK then I get "Processing of object username.servername.local failed with the following error: the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted." I have no problem logging onto the doman. When I try the same with XP clients I do not even see the domain. Do I have DNS issues?
