I have WinXP SP3 Boxes.

When I attempt to attach to the domain I get the following Error:

The Following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain-name":

Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed.  Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again...

I Logged administrator off of server....Same Error

I created a New user and put him in Admin, Domain admin and enterprise admin groups.....Same Error

How can I get around this???

    Do you have any mapped drives to the server from the workstation that is NOT joined yet?  Try disconnecting all drives, rebooting, and try rejoining.  If you have a mapped connection or if you are prompted in ANY way for credentials (besides administrator credentials when prompted to join the domain).

    Put  the " .local " after the Domain name and I was able to attach to domain.
