I usually setup a new install or XPSP3 as part of a work group to start, and then join it to the domain through the properties>computername>Ch
I put in the domain name, it asks for credential,s and a few seconds later it says Welcom to <domain name>
I have a situation now where I'm trying to join a fresh install to the domain, and then it just hangs with the hour glass for a long time after i put in my credentials. I've repeated it with different Admin accounts and still the same thing. The attached screen cap is the error I finally get.
