Trying to join a computer to the domain, i am having an issue. the following are not actual names, but used for reference,

Cannot connect to the domain.com for our network.
I am able to join the domain_nb (netbios name).

I have already reset the winsock and reinstalled the tcp/ip protocol.

This is causing an issue also connecting to other servers on our network.(ie. print server.) The computer worked properly at one point and has now stopped.

Is there anything else that may resolve this issue without having to reload the computer.

So the computer was joined to the domain before? Then, before rejoining, you might want to remove the computers object from AD first.

i tried removing the computer from the domain, deleting from AD, reboot, then rejoin the domain, still unable to join domain.com.

i even tried removing from domain, deleting from AD, reboot, create in AD, then rejoin the domain, no luck

Any errors showing up when trying to join? And also in the eventlog of the machine and/or server?

it is saying that is is unable to locate the domain.com
what makes it strange is that it will join the domain_nb(netbios) , but is unable to connect to certain servers,

says that windows cannot find the location of the server, check spelling and try again.

I got it.. the service for the tcp/ip netbios helper was disabled. re-enabled the service and started it. seems to connect to the server properly, was able to join the domain.com and issue seems to be resolved.

Thank you for your help..
