I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

VERY VERY annoying problem i'm having, so thought i would ask for some assisstance before i go mad.

Setup Win 2003 Server on a spare PC at home, set it up as a domain controller (installed AD and DNS) and now i am trying to make machines on the network a member of this domain. Every machine i try and add, i am getting an error message: "a domain controller for the domain could not be contacted". I have tested this on my laptop which is running XP, and on my other PC which is running Vista.

My Network setup is attached (see below). DHCP is enabled on the router, and all machines are getting assigned IP's fine if their on DHCP. Some machines are setup as static which are: The router (192.168.1.1), the Server (192.168.1.160), PC (192.168.1.151) and are picking up their IP's fine.

For arguments sake lets say i'm trying to connect the PC to the domain (but as i've said i tested with PC and laptop, neither worked). Ok the firewall on PC and server is off, i am able to ping the PC from Server and visa versa. The domain i setup on the server (howelly.com) resolves from the PC:

From Command line on my PC:
nslookup howelly.com

Server: UnKnown
Address: 192.168.1.160:53

Name: howelly.com
Address: 192.168.1.160

Its doing my head in, and i feel i am missing something quite obvious. Any help would be appreciated

I have a server running Windows 2003 server. I have an XP Pro box (without Net Beui) that I would like to have join the server domain. I can't get it to do so. Any suggestions?

By the way, in the same cabled network, I have an NT4 server on a totally separate domain. I have Win 98 boxes joined to that domain as well as XP Pro boxes. The only way I could successfully get those to join this NT4 server domain was to add net beui to those boxes.

I have also tried to have a XP Pro box (with net beui installed on it as a protocol) join the 2003 server domain and it refuses also. The error message I get says:

My client has a small domain with SBS server 2003. The server connects to a router which connects to the DSL modem. On the router, dhcp is disabled. The server is a dns server and dhcp is running. All of the client PC's are windows XP and were able to join the domain with no issues. One of the client PC's had to be replaced. The replacement came with windows 7 pro x64 installed.
From the windows 7 PC I can see the other PC's on the network, can see the server, can access the shares on the server, and remote into the server. I can also ping the dns server. There are 2 ways to join the domain. The first one used a wizard on the windows 7 PC. When I go thru the wizard it tells me that there is no account on the domain controller for the PC. If I do it manually it tells me the dns couldn't find the controller. The dns server is the domain controller. I have also tried using a static IP like the XP machines have and got the same problems. I have also created the computer account on the server manually
The server has sp2 installed. I have looked on the net and found some different solutions like making changed to the local security policy but none of those have worked. I am stumped. Anybody know of a solution?

A:Win 7 Pro can't join SBS Server 2003 domain

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Please see attached file and make sure that in Computer Name/Domain Changes, then click on More...that you have the correct domain name under 'Primary DNS suffix of this computer' - for example company.local.

Try setting it up to Static IP again and verify that from the Windows 7 LAN setting the DNS is pointing to the Server's DNS which is a Private IP and not an external IP then change it back to DHCP. Try manually connecting to your domain again.

An update will be nice.

I get this same error message except for my domain name.

I tried to flush the DNS and still nothing. I even took this server to my network that I know works and it was the same thing. So I know there is something a mess with the 2003 server. Netlogon is not started and I can't get it started could that be it? What other DNS commands can I try?
I can use the internet, Ping the gateway, and dns. Nslookup is pointing to the right server/domain.

It's not the protocols it is Active Directory that is the issue. What is the current DNS name of the server? Most orgs name them something like domainname.local and you need to have it exactly like it is in DNS.

Hello,

I'm working at a small site with about 10 workstations all XP Pro. One of them has recently freaked out, couldn't connect to any shares, and can't get on the internet / intranet with either FQDN or IP Addr. IPConfig checks out (it's getting an IP address and correct DNS server etc from DHCP and building it's search list - but leaving out the connection specific DNS Suffix).

I removed the workstation from the domain and tried to re-join, where-upon I'm getting my favourite:
"A domain controller for the domain MY.SUB.DOMAIN.COM could not be contacted. Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly ... yadah yadah yadah" in the Details, it identifies the correct domain controllers.

Following another handy post on this site, I've checked my NetSetup.Log, which clearly states:

Hi guys,

I'm having issues joining a remote PC to the corporate domain.
The VPN we're using is SonicWall.

Here's what the error is:

Note: This information is intended for a network administrator. If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\Windows\debug\dcdiag.txt.

The domain name "creatormail" might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.

If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.

The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "creatormail":

The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.creatormail

Common causes of this error include the following:

- The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:

The Windows 2000 Adv Server servers join the new domain hosted by MS01, no problem.

The Windows Server 2003 systems cannot join the domain. The following message is returned:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain ...

They can resolve to the domain name, but the domain basically is refusing them from joining.

All servers have the same administrator login/password.

All servers can resolve hostnames through the DNS server.

He said that last semester, a student joined a WIN7 machine to a WIN NT 4.0 domain. So..I have researched it.....I discovered one post that discussed how it was possible on the win 7 beta version. However i do not have that version. Does anybody out there have any idea how one might do this? Can I use Samba? Are there any registry tricks I can try.. from what i can tell there are Trust issues between the two operating systems that are the real problem. Anybody?
Best Regards,
K.R.

I have a Windows NT4 PDC and am trying to force a Windows xp pro
workstation to join the domain controlled by my win nt4 pdc.
On the win nt4 pdc, I did add in "user manager for domains"
the user/password account I use on the win xp workstation.
Still on the windows NT4 PDC, in SERVER MANAGER, I did add successfully
the windows XP computer as a Windows NT workstation (only option
available for my win xp workstation).
Then from the win xp computer, I went to System properties,
then "Computer name" tab, and I clicked on the CHANGE button.
Under "Member of", I checked DOMAIN and I did mention
the domain name. Windows XP confirmed that I was part of the
domain with the pop up "Welcome to domain xyz".
Then win xp rebooted, but when logging on to the domain from the
win xp computer, I get error "Windows cannot connect to the domain,
either because the controller is down ... (which is not the case, because
the other workstations have access to the domain and both the win xp
computer and the windows NT 4 pdc are seeing each other via network
neighborhood/or windows explorer) ... or because your computer account was not found
(On the win Nt4 pdc, in "Server Manager", the win xp computer is there....but if
I double click on it, it says that the trust relationship between the win nt4 pdc and
the win xp workstation failed....even if I succesfully selected the win xp pc from there and chose
the option JOIN DOMAIN)....

Hello, I am trying to join our samba domain at home, and it just keeps saying unable to join x domain. The specified domain does not exist or could not be contacted.

Any help?

A:How do I join a samba domain with windows 7?

You join it like any other Windows domain. The samba host is pretending to be an AD domain controller (AD). Hence, it needs to expose the same DC-related DNS (SRV) records, the same sysvol share, policies...

I am trying to connect Windows 7 to the domain of a Windows 2008 Server. We have ~20 other Windows XP clients able to join and connect to the domain.
I get this error message when trying to join the domain:

An attempt to resolve the dns name of a domain controller in the domain being joined has failed.

I have the TCP/IP set to obtain the IP automatically and the DNS as static with the correct DNS IP.

I can ping the server using both it's IP and host name.
DNS functions propperly when the host name is typed into the URL bar.
It also says that I have limited connection but I think that is because the network that all these computers are connected to is not connected to the web.
Any ideas?

Hi

I have just installed my 1st PC with windows 7 on my network which has a 2008 datacentre server as a Domain controller. When I try to add the PC onto the domain I get the error message:

"The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "***":
An attempt to resolve the DNS name of the domain controller in the domain being joined has failed. Please verify this client is configured to reach the DNS server that can resolve the DNS names in the target domain.

My DNS server is a Billion router that is also the DHCP server the domain controller does not handle these to roles. What is happening why can I not add this to the domain. The only other PC's on the domain are using XP SP3 which with same settings have no issues.

Anyone else having these sort of issues? Please help!

Cheers

Hello, I recently upgraded my machine from windows XP to Windows 7. Ever since I have not been able to logon to the domain. The system always logs me on to a Temporary Profile; thus I'm not able to access domain resources.
I resetted the computer account and rejoined the machine back to the domain..but its still not being successful; the error message tells me another system has the same credentials as mine and thus cannot join the domain.
I also tried renaming the computer and pre-staging the computer account but its still not successful.
How do I go about this?

Talk to the domain administrator. It appears your old XP machines credentials (i assume you named both machines the same) are preventing you

at work we're using a Windows 2000 server as our DC. We have rolled
out our first Vista laptop, and we're having trouble getting it to join the
domain.

When I try adding the computer to the domain I get the following error: "The
format for the specified network name is invalid".

I am typing in the domain name correctly, and the computer name is simply
the user's last name.

Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks in advance.

As listed in the title.

I'm having to Sysprep a build for a Tablet Device. The one remaining issue i have is that i cant get the unattend.xml to allow me to enter a PC name short of changing the "<SkipMachineOOBE> to False but the issue here is then that you end up having to setup a user (manually) which i don't want to do.

I have everything working the way i want (runonce reg settings to kickoff some vbs scripts etc with an auto login of a created admin account on 1st boot set in the unattend)

So my thoughts were maybe i can go back to setting <SkipMachineOOBE> to True and have a script that initiated on the runonce login that will prompt to change PC name and then Join domain.

I have goggled around but cant seem to find an example script that works. I think its because they are geared up for Windows 7 or XP.

Does anyone have a suggestion or even a simpler way for me to sort this PC naming bit out. I want it to prompt for an input but only PC name. then carry on with the rest of the unattend.xml

Thanks

Hi

I have several IBMT60, HP2710p tablet, and IBM x60 tablet computers wich I have made new images for with XP SP2 (tablet for HP and x60).

Sysprep has been working fine for my computers before, but now its just working for T60 and HP2710p.
The X60 wont join the domain even though the sysprep.inf is the same and has ben working before.

I made new images from scratch with XP SP2, and the the difference between my old images and my new is that I have
updated my images with new drivers, some minor programs and of course windows update so now the images have SP3 installed.

Somehow something has happend, and I don?t know why the x60 wont join the domain anymore.

My guess is that some patch of the windows updates has made something with my image so the x60 won?t join the domain.
It?s really disturbing, now I mus join computers to domain manually, witch takes uneccessary time.

Is there anyone out there who can help me?
Can I be right in my guess, that some windows update patch makes joining the domain impossible?
Has anyone had a similar problem?

Thanks for any answers!

I brought my own laptop PC into a business I joined, and they registered the laptop to their domain and upgraded my Windows 7 Home to Ultimate. It was a temp assignment, now I've left the company fo another assignment, but will work from home. I've

A:Un Join Domain

Its not that easy but let me tell you the basics -

Properties of my computer/Computer name/click change/ click workgroup and type in the workgroup name.

THis unjoins you from the domain the main things to think about are this -

1) your profile information will not be remembered so you have to run F.A.S.T in order to get all the information beforehand. 2) ALSO if this is a company PC pulling it off the domain can make it so when you get into work you won't have access. 3) As well you have to have administrator rights to pull it off the domain.
