JCT,

  - Check your cabling....
  - Check your DNS entries in your TCP/IP config.
  - Create the computer account first in Active Directory, then try rejoining the computers.

Hi,

I checked the DNS settings. Its correct. Even I changed the cable & also the ports but same issue.
My domain is Test so I am typing Test.com. Its does not work in Windows 8.

But in Xp computer when I type Test.com its ask for the user name & the password. when I provide the user name it does not accept.

I will try to add the computer name  in the server . after that I will try join it to domain.

Regards,

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

  Thank you for the points, Windows 8, turn off the firewall. Troubleshoot in the following steps.

1. Add computer account to server.
Open CMD Prompt:
2. From WIN 8, ping the Default Gateway
3. Ping the DNS address.
4.If both those are UN-Successful-Fix.
5 If DNS is unsuccessful log back into the DNS server and double check that the IP shown in your DNS Server is the same as the current assigned IP to the  WIN8 machine.
