Cannot Add Windows XP SP2 to Windows 2000 Domain

I am having problems joining Windows XP SP2 on a Windows 2000 Domain.  When I try to join it I get the below message on the client.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: This information is intended for a network administrator.  If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\WINDOWS\debug\dcdiag.txt.

The domain name (DomainName) might be a NetBIOS domain name.  If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.

If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.

DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain (DomainName):
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.(DomainName)
The following domain controllers were identified by the query:
dc2
dc1
Common causes of this error include:
- Host (A) records that map the name of the domain controller to its IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.
- Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.
For information about correcting this problem, click Help.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I tried running the nltest /dsgetdc:(DomainName)  and I get
DsGetDcName failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN

I can add a Windows 2000 client to the domain on the same network but not any XP PC's.  Running an NS Lookup looks good too.


C:\DOS>nslookup
Default Server:  (DomainServer.DomainName)
Address:  10.64.1.21

check your ip settings (DNS, WINS DG...)
Firewall on your pc?

ormerodrutterCommented:
What is the name of your domain? If your domain is "company.com", then when you join your XP you just need to type "company" in the domain box.

Check if your Domain controller(s) are online and the Netlogon service is running on either/both. You can also check your DNS record looking for the A record of your DC - if you don't have it you can create it manually. A Host (A) record is a DNS record telling clients the IP of a particular machine. You can add the Host (A) record in DNS, specifying the name of the DC and its IP address.

Don't think its a firewall issue though but still worth trying to disable your AV/firewall apps and rejoin again.

If I do a reverse lookup on my ip it does show my computer name.  My domain is 'CFL'.  I have already disabled the firewall and any AV.  This PC is on a subnet in another city Dallas.  I can add XP SP2 PC's here locally on different subnets.  I can add Windows 2000 Clients on the Dallas office subnet just not the XP.

Make sure that the XP client has its preferred DNS server set to point at your Windows 2000 Domain Controller.

I see some errors on the above Netdiag I ran.  1 Strange occurance is that it shows Windows 2000.  Is this suppose to mean the DC which is 2000 Server or the client which is XP

Try move the XP machine to a workgroup. Restart it and try join the domain again. It seems it is part of the centralfreights.com domain

Thanks for the advice but it's not working.  Another thing I noticed is that I cannot ping the Domain Name.  Should I be able to do that or not?

Ok,  I finally figured this one out.  We have a Single Label Domain.  I had to add registry fixes.  Got info from Microsoft KB Article 300684
