A Single Sign-on error has occurred. Please contact an administrator. Details: Could not find domain controller for this domain

Hi,
I have installed Sharepoint 2003 and it all seems fine up unto the point where I am trying to set up SSO (single sign-on).  I have followed the microsoft instructions exactly.  I have created a specific user, I have granted them domain admin access, I have given them server administrator access to the sql database.  However, when I go to apply my settings to the manage server settings for single sign-on web page.  I receive the following error:
'A Single Sign-on error has occurred. Please contact an administrator. Details: Could not find domain controller for this domain'

Can anyone help with this at all, I am desperate and I can't find a resolution to this problem on any user groups.
Thanks

Hi,

Are you doing these settings on the server or on a client connecting to the server?. If you are making these changes on a client computer is the computer connected to the domain?. If so have you saved this extra username and password under you manage user accounts in windows xp?.

Regards,

JOhan

Great, thanks for that, thats solved that problem.  However, I now get a
Failed to connect to the database server. Verify connectivity and rights for the configuration account and try again.
I have already done the registry fix microsoft recommend for Windows Server 2003 SP1, with regards to taking the quotes out for the reg key regarding the service.  I have stopped and started the service, but still get this error.

Any ideas?
