Cannot Join Windows XP SP3 VMs to domain
Posted on 2010-04-02
Windows 2003 Native domain
DC is in site with XP installations to join domain. Local DC is Win2k3 R2, SP2
Adding DC and 4th site was no problem. Now, creating XP VMs (on Citrix Xen 5.5), they will not join domain.
Keep getting the following error when trying to join the domain
The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain":
The specified network name is no longer available.
Entry in NetSetup.log is:

Another interesting thing is that I can use RDP to connect to the DC and the XP VMs, I cannot do that between DC and either XP VM that I'm trying to join to the domain.
I can ping the ip address and the hostname of all three amnongst the machines in question.
Trying to join the XP VMs using the NetBIOS name of the domain as well as the domain.com nomenclature both get the same error and log entries.
