I recently started work at a new company that has many Windows PC's and the servers are mostly Linux. I do not have much exposure to Linux, so the company are helping me learn about it.
I have been given the administrator username and password to add PC's to the domain and the last few times I tried it on XP PC's, it worked.
I am trying to add a Windows 7 Professional PC to our domain (Linux domain controller), but I keep getting an error message on the PC....
"The specified computer account could not be found. Contact an administrator to verify the account is in the specified domain. If the account has been deleted upon unjoin, reboot and rejoin the domain"
I'm sure the administrator username and password are accurate, because I can logon to other PC's and I have admin access.
I do have an IP address on the PC, can ping the domain controller and DNS servers.
Does anyone know why I would have difficulty adding a Windows 7 Professional PC to a domain controlled by a Linux server, when doing it on XP PC's is fine?
