I have a CNC machine running Windows NT 4 that is connected to our network, and I am really struggling with getting it connected to the domain on our 2008 server. I've searched every corner of the web I could find, and here's as far as I got:
1. Attempting to connect the NT machine to the domain results in this error message: 'The domain controller for this domain cannot be located.' See the attachment for a screenshot.
2. I enabled the group policy on the server 'allow cryptography algorithms compatible with Windows NT 4.0' (whatever that means) by following the instructions at this link here
. That doesn't seem to fix anything.
3. Apparently downloading something called dsclient.exe fixes the issue as well, but I was unable to find a download for it anywhere online either.
4. I am able to connect to the Internet.
The position of IT was passed upon me when our previous IT stopped working here, so I'll use that as the reason why I'm not as network-savvy as most IT's - hence my post here. Does anyone have anything for me that might work?
