We have a SBS2003 domain. Windows XP Pro computers are able to join the domain via System Properties - Computer Name Tab - Change button - Memer of Domain. We can remove computers from domain as well and rejoin at will.
Windows XP Pro computers are able to authenticate and login using a domain admin account.
However, a Windows 7 computer is NOT ABLE TO JOIN THE DOMAIN. I've tried it in System Properties - Computer Name Tab - Change button - Member of Domain. Somehow it cannot communicate with the DNS server.
Is there a setting in Windows 7 that needs modification? And/or is there a setting in SBS2003/DNS etc.. that needs modification to allow for Windows 7 compatability.
