I am new to VMWARE and installed VMWARE server on one of our Windows 2003 servers. After a succesful installation I created a Virtual Machine by pointing it to a Windows XP machine on the network. It created the Virtual Machine fine and I was able to load it and login into the VM.
My problem now is that the physical Windows XP machine that I used to create the VM cannot log into the network domain any longer. Please see the error below. Does anyone know how I can fix this PC so it can log back in? The local admin username/password does not seem to be working either.
"Windows cannot connect you to this domain, either because the domain is down or otherwise unavailable"
Also, I have turned off the VM copy running on the server just to make sure there were no conflicts.
I am able to ping the PC and even remote desktop to the username/password prompt but it will not allow me to login. I have turned it off and back on with no success.
Any help would be much appreciated. The person who uses this PC needs access again ASAP.
