Now I don't know where to go. Not that I understand all of it.
I am trying to join a Win XP Pro computer with sp. 3 on it to a 2003 domain controller.
The DC is located away and I am connected through a VPN over a CISCO router to the domain.
Actually, this computer (A) on which I am typing this question is connected to the domain. It sits on the same subnet as the other computer that has trouble connecting. Let's name it computer (B).
Computer B gets IP information from the CISCO router: 10.aaa.yy.13. It can ping the domain controller at 10.aaa.xx.30.
The domain controller 10.aaa.xx.30 can ping the workstation B at 10.aaa.yy.13 when I RDC to it.
From computer B, (the problematic one) I can ping our domain by pinging corp.domain.com no problem.
I added the workstation name to AD on the DC; however it does not have a DNS name entry in General tab.
When I tried to join the domain from computer B by using Network ID wizard, Ive got a message that the account for the computer already exists, do I want to use it. So I said.. of course! It unfortunately did not work. Ive got a message:
Your computer could not be joined to the domain because the following error has occurred:
The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.
Can someone pinch me, please?
After that, of course, if someone could point me to a solution would be great. I flew in here to add those computers to our network and am loosing the last of my har.
