Add new computer to server with domain
Posted on 2011-05-10
First the background information:
Network has server 2003 using domain "xyz.com". The computer that needs to be added was previously connected to server, with username/password already in place. (computer crashed and was reformated)
I have went into the computer properties and changed it from "Workgroup" to the domain "xyz.com". This allows the new computer to "see" the server and access files, but for some of the programs to work, this computer need to "login" to the server.
Originally this computer at bootup would ask if you wanted to join the "domain" or the normal "workgroup". Now it just boots with no options.
I have tried with no success to use the "Network Identification" wizzard to force a "login" for this PC.
Can someone please provide me with some "detailed" instructions on how to perform this??
