Domain not shown when setting share

Posted on 2009-04-17

I reformatted and reinstalled a workstation with XP Pro.  Joined domain, set up user.  I can access all the domain shares I expect from that computer.  All ok.  Then created a share for the C: drive so that other users/computers could access it like before.  Went to set permissions for the share and instead of the domain name being presented for me to chose users from, I only have the local computer listed contrary to what I normally see.  I've never seen this before and have done this procedure many times without having this behavior.  
Server is SBS2003

    when you go to set permissions, after you click "permission" button, then "add", a window pops up, there's a "location" button. If you click that, can you see your domain?

    No,  that's what's not normal.  all I see is the local computer name.

    Duh!  Typo in the address of the server in the DNS setting of the NIC.  Fixed.  Sorry.
