I am trying to join my computer to a domain in my small office network. The computer is plugged into a router that is connected to a network port. All the other computers that are in the domain have a 10.10.10.1-24 address. The computer that I am connected to has a 192.168.200.39 address so I am assuming that the router is assigning the IP address to the computer. Its seems as if the Windows 2008 serevr/DHCP server cannot assign the computer connected to router an IP address. I have no other available ports at the location where I am at.
I keep getting a “A domain controller could not be contacted” error when I try to join the domain.
Is there a workaround for the above scenario?
Do I absolutely have to plug my computer in an existing network port for it to join my domain?
