problem with authentication and adding a new user in computer

Hello guys,


I have a network windows 2000 server.

We have some station windows 2000 and XP professional

In my computer (windows XP professional) I am trying to add

a new user the steps:

Controle panel
   user account
      add
        user name
        domain


default user

after clicking the button conclude, I got the folling
message:

User cannot be add because it generates the following error:
fail in trust relation between the work station and primary domain

How to solve this?

Another problem that I am having it is that my computer and other
computers are losing the authentication in the server.

Sounds like the computer account is out of sync.  Generally this can be caused by not using time syncronisation correctly.  You need to reestablish the trust.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Hi,

Must I run this command line in my server?

w32tm /config "/manualpeerlist:ntp2b.mcc.ac.uk,0x8 ntp.cis.strath.ac.uk,0x8 132.146.236.132,0x8" /syncfromflags:manual

thanks

The addresses listed are good public NTP servers in the UK.  You need to run this command (or an adapted version) on your AD forest first domain tree PDC server.
