Cannot connect a Windows 7 Pro client to server 2003 domain
Posted on 2015-01-19
I have done a reinstall of windows 7 Pro 32 bit on a PC which was previously connected to this domain. Other Windows 7 PCs are connected OK, and this PC works happily on the network, can bring up shared folders on the server etc. However, when I try to use http//server1/connectcomputer it doesn't find anything, just comes up with a bing search. When I try to change from workgroup to domain in control panel, it takes over a minute then says "The specified server cannot perform the requested operation"
I have set the dns servers to (1) the server and (2) the router, tried flushdns and registerdns to no avail.
I have also tried switching off the firewall.
Also created a new computer account on the server.
Any ideas please?
