I am really stumped on this one. Had to rebuild a Dell laptop with XP SP3. When trying to rejoin it to the SBS 2003-based network, I am encountering the following error:
--I go to http://
tcomputer and launch the wizard, providing domain administrator username and password. Immediately,
"The list of users and computers could not be found."
Everything everywhere says that this is a DNS issue, but DNS is configured correctly as far as I can tell. DHCP is actually handled by the Sonicwall router/firewall as it is the VPN termination point. It is, however, configured to have its first DNS server as the SBS server. As a test, I turned DHCP off on the firewall and configured the server to handle DHCP. Same result. Configuring the laptop manually--same result.
Any thoughts as to something else I might try? As a tool of last resort last night, I ripped DNS off the server and reinstalled. This actually seems to have helped in the sense that resolution/network seems much snappier this morning, but it has not helped with the original problem.
There are no other problems/issues of any consequence that I can see on the server aside from this one annoying little thing. All other workstations are behaving just fine as was this laptop before its hard drive died.
Thanks for any help or advice,
