Network issues ? network card damage ? the cable ?
Hello makana808,

Is the workstation's DNS pointing to the domain controller's IP address?


The computer cannot find the domain you are trying to join. Try entering either the full domain.

For example, if your internal domain is mydomain.local make sure you enter that.

If that doesnt work, the computer has no connection to the network. Make sure the computer is getting an correct ip address and can at least ping the domain controller that hosts the domain you are trying to join.

Bingo guys, But first let me apologize for the late respsonse from everyone, I had some personal family problems going on. But the problem was the time syncronization! Thank you VERY MUCH ThorSG1 and everyone else for your feedback. I installed NTP (network time proctocol) which sync the time but for some reason it is exactly 8 minutes off from the real time. I don't understand it, I mean I could if was exactly 1 or more hours off, then I could mostly likely blame it on day light saving time. but 8 minutes???
Glad to hear it worked out for you.  I've seen it be off by about a minute and cause havoc.
I just read you comment again and I missed the question at the end.  So are you saying that with NTP installed it is off by 8 Minutes?
First what did you install NTP on a DC or Server?
Check GP to see if you have specifed a server to sync with.
Check what server your clients/member servers are updating there time from.  From a cmd prompt: net time
