My Dearest Experts,

I have just installed a fresh copy of Win2k3 on a standard office network. It is driving me insane! I have set it up as normal, however when I try and connect the Win XP Pro desktops to the domain, it says 'Access Denied'! Please help...Also I can't connect to any of the file shares, by typing \\server. The username and Password box comes up, but it doesn't accept the credentials.

This is really urgent as I am here now...

Regards.

Hi espoke,

Can you provide me with more details regarding the network -
1. Is this an existing network that has a domain controller before?
2. What is the IP address structure?
3. Who is hosting the DNS?
4. Who is the WINS server on the network?
5. When you type in the domain name on the workstation, do you type in the Netbios name or the DNS domain name?
6. The more info you give, the better.

Regards,
M

It is an exisitng network. Due to some unreliability issues I have reformatted the server and installed Windows 2003 Standard R2.

The servers IP is 192.168.0.252 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 I have set the default gateway to that of the ADSL router 192.168.0.1

The Win2k3 is hosting the DNS

I type the DNS Domain name

Hope that helps

espoke,

Aaa... this is part of the problem.  Have you moved the computers to a workgroup before attempting to connect them to the new domain (with the same name)?

espoke,

I have also done this.  If your domain name is the same as one that no longer exists, you may run into problems as the name environment (although not important) is causing your problem.  Had you chosen to use a different name for the new domain, you would not have had this problem.

espoke,

At this point you will need to remove any reference to the old domain and security credentials.  I suggest you take one of the troublesome computers and run Sysprep on it.  This will not effect any of the applications on the computer, but it will remove the SID of the computer and any reference to the old domain.
