Problem adding xp machines to a domain.
Posted on 2006-06-05
We school is out for us so we are doing a ton of housekeeping. One of the major projects we are working on is moving the schools network from a workgroup environment to a domain environment. We are now going through the process of switching over the machines (all of which are xp pro). We are not very savvy with domains not having much experience so any information you can give is greatly appreciated. Okay the problem we are having is when we try to add a machine to the domain by changing the computer id in my computer properties we get an error stating that the domain controller cannot be contacted. I have pasted the error message details below. The domain we are using is psd1.blackfoot.net. we are trying to doing this after the account is entered into the server active directory. Thanks in advance.
