Cannot join Windows 7 to domain even after setting DNS to domain controller IP

Q: Cannot join Windows 7 to domain even after setting DNS to domain controller IP

I've been trying to join a new Windows 7 Professional machine to a domain controller running Windows 2003 Server with no luck. We currently have 4 Windows XP machines running on that domain without any issues, but when I try to add the Windows 7 computer,
here is what happens:

A computer account on the domain could not be found (confirmed it is already there)
I put in the computer name and domain again, and Administrator credentialsNow it tells me: "An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has failed."
I currently have DNS on the Windows 7 PC set to the Domain Controller and have IPv6 unchecked under Network Properties. I can even ping the domain name (resolves to IP of the domain controller). It looks like it can, indeed, find the domain from
the message in step 1, so am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance for any help!

Preferred Solution: Cannot join Windows 7 to domain even after setting DNS to domain controller IP

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.)

A: Cannot join Windows 7 to domain even after setting DNS to domain controller IP

Hi,
You need flush your DNS cache in client side first.
Then, let?s create the following registry value for a try:
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManWorkstation\Parameters

- Created a DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1
- Created a DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0
Reboot the machine and check the result again.Alex Zhao

I have a Machine with windows 7 x64 pro which was connected to a domain controller that is dead and not available anymore.
I want to continue to use this computer standalone and keep all the software and configurations already installed, however i need to change my pass and i am not able to do it getting this msg : configuration
information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or because access is denied.
How can i solve this (change the pass or copy all the user settings to local) without the domain controller server?
thank you

Hello everyone. I really hope that you can help me. You are my last hope.

I maintain about 30 domain computers. Recently when users try to log in on most of them the following error appears frequently:

"Windows cannot connect to the domain, either because the domain controller is down or otherwise unavailable, or because your computer account was not found. Please try again later. if the message continues to appear, contact your system administrator for assistance."

I have seen that this error appears only in the computers with Windows XP and not in the computers with Windows Vista or 7. We have 2 domain controllers.

Please let me tell you about the ways I tried to resolve this problem and their results:

- on some computers, after several restarts the users are able to log in, but if they restart or shutdown after that the error appears again; this worked for some computers, but I do not know if the error will appear again in the future.
- on some computers, when i disabled the windows firewall or allowed all kind of ICMPs it was resolved, but this did not work for all the computers and I do not know if the error will appear again in the future.
- I unjoined and then rejoined some computers from the domain and it was resolved but after restarting the error appears again.
- If I unplug the network cable the users can log in but after restart the error appears again.

PC was on Windows home version. It was upgraded to Windows Pro but it made us install the anniversity update before we could upgrade.

Joined the computer to the domain with no issue. After reboot we could not log in with the domain user account. Tried other domain accounts too, even domain admin account. It say username or password is incorrect but that is not true.

Tried to unjoin and rejoin to the domain no luck.

Confirmed dns settings on the PC. Using wired connection. Not going through a VPN connection or anything like that.

Hello..

I would like to setup a DC win server 2003 with virtual box, with one xp pro host, in a test environment to pursue server 2003 certifications.

Has anyone ever set up a similar environment?

Setting up server 03 as a standalone workgroup server is no issue, but as a DC with AD enabled, it seems a little more complex.

The 4 choices for networking are

Bridged
NAT
Internal
Host

after running AD setup, the server wants a static ip.

I would like to join my xp host to the DC also.

my domain name is test-domain.local.

Thanks for any ideas ...
My host machine has one nic.
 

A:Solved: Setting up a domain controller 2003 with Virtual Box? help request

Anything Server or Domain is beyond me, but I can tell you that you want to use Bridged networking. That will put your guest OS on your LAN the same as if it were a separate machine connected by ethernet to your router. I see that I am assuming that the host is connected to a router.

However i do not have that version. Does anybody out there have any idea how one might do this? Can I use Samba?

PCs are Win 7 Ultimate, All are joined to the Domain
Domain Controller, DNS, DHCP Server (on same instance) is Server 2012 standard
The network topology is like this: Router as Internet Gateway>Switch>Wired to Server and PC's, SIP phones, and Wireless Access Point all on same subnet. DNS and DHCP have been offloaded to Server Roles and switched off on the router.
All of the PCs have network cards that have joined the domain network at least some of the time since I set them up.
Some of them have always picked up the domain network and continue to this day.
Some of them intermittently pick up the domain network and other times join whatever other unmanaged network is available.
Some of them have stopped picking up the domain network altogether and will, no matter how many times their NICs are restarted, always join a non-domain (unmanaged) network.
When the NICs are not joining the domain, they are unable to ping hostnames of any devices on the network but nslookup of the hostnames usually works. The DC, DNS, DHCP server's IP can be pinged without issue, ipv4 or ipv6.

A:Domain controller for this domain could not be found

Simplest thing to try is remove it from the domain (make sure you have a local account with admin rights FIRST). Then re-add it to the domain.
Can you see/use network resources otherwise? Are the lights on on the NIC? Have you tried a different cable/network port?
Maybe remove/re-add the NIC. Check all the properties, correct IP/subnet/gateway/etc.......

Hi all - I have a problem with my domain.

I have 1 domain "europe1" with the PDC in the UK.
I have 2 bdc's for europe1 in the a location in france.

europe1 is the accounts domain and is trusted by lots of resource domains.

The problem is this : Open user manager for domains on either one of the BDC's, it tries to retrive the list of users but gives the error "cannot find a domain controller for this domain".
If I try to retrieve a list of users from any one of the trusting domains it works no problem.

As a test we built a new bdc and it worked with no problems.

Any idea's what is wrong with our original BDC's ??

Thanks in advance
 

A:Cannot find domain controller for this domain

Have you done the standard what I term Microsoft solutions.

Reapply service pack the BDC's
Apply the latest Network card driver and reapply the service pack.

Only other thing I can think to check is can the BDC's resolve the PDC computer name.

Hope this is some what helpful.

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

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!

Hi all,
I am currently helping my company prototype automated Windows installation via network. I am using Server 2008r2 and Windows Deployment Services with Windows 7 as the

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
upgraded my family PCs to Windows 7 to create a homegroup network, but I can't join this homegroup with my laptop PC, as I'm prevented from doing so while the laptop is apparently still on the domain.  How can I remove my laptop from this domain, since

I have a Windows NT4 PDC and am trying to have a Windows xp pro

Hello all...

I just installed build 7000 and I'm having issues connecting to my domain at work. I cannot setup my Outlook account either because my network exchange server is NT4 based.

I have tried setting up my account via Outlook and via the "Mail" portion of Control Panel to no avail...

Any workarounds that anyone can spare?

A:Cannot Join NT4 Domain

Did it work on the previous build you were using? I know that it's a huge pain to get a NT4 machine onto a 2k3+ domain. I've never tried using a newer machine to join a domain older than the client (except for XP clients to a 2k domain). Also, to get Vista to join a NT4 domain, you have to lower the security requirements. Another way around that I used in XP when it wouldn't play nice was to, instead of changing the PC's friendly name, I would go to the Network ID button and run thru the wizard. If it atleast finds the DC, then the wizard should work every time.

Quote from Joining NT Domain
"Under Local Policies > Security Options

Change the value of "Network Security: [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]LAN[/COLOR][/COLOR] Manager authentication level"
from "NTVLM2 responses only" to "LM and NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security
if negotiated"

Note that I last tried this with build 5384. Newer builds may need a
different fix.

I have created a new Windows 2003 SP2 Domain and have been transfering users from the old domain to the new one..

All Computers are running Windows XP.. Most have XP Professional, but 3 are XP Home.

The XP Home users I know cannot join a domain and they are fine.

I had completed about 5 users and now when I try and remove the user form the old and join the new one I get the following error..

"Specified Server Cannot perform the requested operation"

Microsoft knowledge base gives me this

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/293403/en-us

I am only running TCP/IP and am not sure if it is bound properly.

How can I tell?

I have been having other issues between the old and new domain since creating it..

My ultimate goal is to remove the old domain totally and just have the new one.

The old domain is currently the DHCP,DNS, and WINS server for the network..

Could this issue be caused by not having DHCP, DNS, or WINS configured properly?

I will be working on this tomorrow and could use all the help I can get..

Thanks in advance for any help...

Unjoin those old machines from the domain, run newsid, and then try a rejoin.

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.

have a mind boggling situation here I have a public domain setup to be accessed from all around the world. the server is win 2000 advanced server with AD domain setup "sup.domain.com" with local ip address of 192.168.1.200 & Static configuration. DNS is setup with forwarder to point to our ISP DNS. We have T1 connection with Cisco router & HP switch 80 port gig. The NAT settings were done to allow all ports for the process of DNS from public ip of sup.domain.com though the router which handles DHCP for all domains.

with that been said, some of the pcs can join the network when using the public dns ip, but some come back an error "the format of the specified network name is invlaid" (screenshot server_error). some join the domain just fine. However, i was looking at dns & seen "computername.olddomain as a DC" (screenshot server_error_dns)which i was not able to add to domain. that error disappered after restart. I have also seen another computer details in print server prop as TS001-TS005 with the pc name i was trying to add to network. but it says
Port: TS001-TS005
Discription: computername PRN1-PRN5 (screenshot Server_error_prn)
At this point, i guess i should know i'm totally lost & can not even start to think of a reason for this ...

A:Win 7 can not join domain

Hi hartanto,

I just succesfully joined 4 laptops with Windows 7 to my domain. 3 of my domain controllers are running Win2k3 R2, and one is Win2k8. I didn't encounter any issues. The only issue I found was with printer drivers not working with windows 7.

It sounds like you have an underlying network connectivity problem. Is your laptop on the very same LAN as the domain controller? If not, you won't be able to join a new computer remotely to a domain while it's not on the same LAN.

I just got a new Dell WXP Prof computer for office. Most other computers we just gave an account and it worked -- not this one. From the EXCHANGE server/domain controller computer I created a new Email Account and assigned and choose a new user logon to assign it to. It created the account and said at next logon would need to change the password.

> From SYSTEM: Computer Name:Change and selected DOMAIN from WORKGROUP and entered my domain. Was propted for new login and pw -- entered it and got:
"The following error occured attempting to join the domain 'profit': Access is Denied"

"Your computer could not be joined to the domain because the following error has occured: The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship"
 

A:Can't join domain

Are you logged onto the PC as the local Administrator account?

Do you have sufficient authority to add a computer to the domain. Are you apart of the domain admins group. When it asks you for the username and password you need a user that is apart of the domain admins group. Enter the username and password of a user that has enough right to create computer accounts in the domain (for example - a Domain Admin group member). If a computer account was already established in the domain then you can enter any username and password of any valid user (for example - your own domain username and password).

Hello. I have one computer running 2003 Server and another one running XP (SP2 if that matters). Well when I originally set them up, the client computer was only running XP SP1. When I first installed Server 2003, I was able to join my client computer with no problems. As time passed, the OS on my client got corrupted. So I reinstalled XP (fresh install, reformat and all....), upgraded to SP2 and when I try to rejoin, I keep getting an error message "The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain name"; The specified server cannot perform the requested operation."

So I'm disabled my firewall on the client (Comodo), made sure I removed the original instance of the client from AD and even rebooted the server. All it does of the server side is shows the client name under the domain computer with a red "X" on it. I've tried removing the X and attempting to join again. No luck. Please help. Thanks in advance.
