I recently encountered a problem while trying to add a new Dell Vostro 420 computer to my SBS 2003 network. I was unable to run http://servername/connectcomputer
. It kept coming back saying that client files critical to the setup could not be copied. I ran through every tip I found on Experts Exchange but none of them resolved the problem. I was pressed to get the client computer working so I did a manually join to the domain. The client computer seems to work find but I can not find the computer name in Active Directory anywhere. I can ping the computer by name so DNS is resolving properly. If I use the Find option in active directory and search for the computer, it does not return a hit.
Last month, I was able to join a Dell Latitude notebook using ConnectComputer with no problems.
Thanks in advance,
