Cannot join a Win2003 server to a Win2000 domain
Posted on 2011-02-25
I have a new 2003 server (standard) with SP2. When I try to join it to the domain, single 2000 SP3 DC, I get the following error:
The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domianname":
The account is not authorized to log in from this station.
I have tried adding new accounts with admin priv.
I have tried setting the security policies to DISABLED per Microsoft.
I cannot upgrade to 2000 server due space limitations and it is validated.
The DC is listed in the 2003's hosts and lmhosts files with the PRE and DOM tags.
The server name has been added to the DC's DNS and created in the Computers CN.
I have read through similar questions and cannot find an answer that works.
