I had to reinstall Windows 7 Ultimate. I am trying to join it to a domain. A account for this computer is found in the domain. But when I click OK, I am getting a access is denied error. This is the first time I have had this happen to me.

  Thanks for the help

i assume you are using a local administrator account to do this

have you tried deleting the computer account from a domain controller then joining the domain again?

eth2740: "have you tried deleting the computer account from a domain controller then joining the domain again? "

this will fix it. i've had to do it loads

if it doesn't fix it do it try using DOMAIN\administrator and then the password in the credentials box. delete the computer account from AD first.

if it's still not playing make sure the DNS is correct on the 7 box.

manual IP:
in Network>(richt click) NIC> Properties>IPv4 change the DNS on  the 7 box to manual and add the server IP as the main DNS. maybe even try changing the IP to manual address you know is free

DHCP - open elevated command prompt type:

ipconfig /release

enter

ipconfig /renew

enter

reboot and try your luck
