I'm trying to join one 2003 R2 server to the domain.
I"m getting a message that says something to the effect of:
"more than one connection cannot be made with different credentials"

Meaning that there is already a connection made to the Domain server using different credentials/user account so another connection cannot be made to the same server with a different user account.

I did a Netstat -o to see the connections but cant seem to find one to the other server.
What do I need to do in order to get around this and join the server to the domain with the Domain admin's user account?

I generally do a "net use * /delete" to resolve that.  If you do it from a command prompt you will see if there are any errors.

Oh crap... that worked a little to well.

X:\ refers to a location that is unavailable. Check to make sure the disk is properly inserted or that you are connected to the network and then try again...
:)

How do I get those mapped drives back? reboot?  its not prompting me for a username/password when I click on them.

Are your drives mapped by a logon script or manually?  If they are mapped by a logon script, rebooting and logging in should get them back.  

If they are manually mapped, from explorer, tools>map network drive

Select the Drive letter and then put the path in \\servername\share and check the box that says "reconnect at logon"

They were mapped manually. I had to recreate them. No big deal. Thanks, your method worked.
