In my company I am having difficulty in joining  one Windows 8 & one  XP Pro SP3  Pc to the domain. Its a fresh windows installation. Windows firewall is disabled& also antivirus disabled. when I did ipconfig /all , its showing the correct DNS. Can ping the domain server by IP but by name its not pinging sometimes.

Selected the option Enable NetBIOS over tcp/ip. stiil it shows the error .

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.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

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,

  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.
