Vista - Connecting to a domain
Posted on 2008-06-20
We are in the process of upgrading our office machines to Windows Vista. We have a server set up with windows server and a domain of "sites". We have a number of machines running XP and no issues with these.
The problem came when we tried to get the new Vista Machines to join the domain "sites".
1. Went to the `System Properties`.
2. Clicked 'Change'
3. Under the Computer Name/Domain Change options, entered "sites"
NOTE:-The computer has been manually added to the server
4. Clicked OK
5. This brings up a dialog box to enter a username and password - In here entered username and password of user on domain
6. ERROR:- We get the following error message:
"The following error occured attempting to join the domain "sites". The specified domain does not exist or could not be contacted."
Any help would be greatfull....
