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.)

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 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:

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.

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

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.

The private LAN includes VMware guest OSs, Windows 2000 Adv Server servers, and Windows Server 2003 Servers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A:How to join a domain via VPN

Hi Crabrc,

Welcome to Seven Forums,

I'm sure this will depend on the permissions and configuration of the servers but in theory, if the user is connected to the VPN then you should have remote access to the machine (providing this enabled on their machine) you should then be able just add it to the domain as you would normally.

You may have to put the fully qualified domain name in but it should work, I haven't had any issues doing that.

You may need a host entry to resolve the domain name.

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:Win 7 unattend.xml and domain join

Below is a quote from technet, I believe what may be missing is the unsecure command, meaning it doesn't immediately have to have the username and password credentials... Might be worth a shot to add that in.... I haven't tried the autojoin with the unattend yet...

For Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 R2 images. The image unattend file (ImageUnattend.xml) must have the setting <UnsecureJoin>true</UnsecureJoin> in the Microsoft-Windows-UnattendedJoin component. Additionally, the Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup component for the <specialize> unattended pass must exist, even if it is empty.

We are setting up a new IBM computer. During the install
of Windows 2000 we forgot to join the computer to the
domain. Now if we go under My Computer->Properties and try
to join the domain "DOMAIN", we get the error " The
following error occurred attempting to join the
domain "DOMAIN": The credentials supplied conflict with an
existing set of credentials." We tried all the suggestions
saying to disconnect from mapped drives, we deleted all
the networked printers and tried the net use * /delete
command in the command prompt but nothing worked. Can
someone please point us in the right direction?

A:win7 cannot join domain

Firstly, what is your DC running? 2003/R2, 2008? Also make sure your ip configuration is correct for your network and you can ping both the DNS server and the Domain Controller.

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:

A:Unable to join to domain over VPN

Does a window pop up asking for admin credentials when you attempt to join the domain? If it does put in domain\Administrator and then password. I think there are some other things that need to be set up on the VPN end for passthrough authentication if I remember correctly.

I did a fresh install of WinXP Pro on a PC. I want to join that PC to a domain on an NT 4.0 network.

I have a user name login screen where I enter the password. However, when I go to Control Panel, System, Computer Name, and click on the join a Domain button, and I enter the user ID and password, I get a message that I cannot join the domain because duplicate names or shares are not allowed, etc.

Do I need to delete the Windows logon name and password before I can join the PC to the NT 4.0 domain?

I don't understand why the PC can't join the domain when I enter a valid user name and password, and enter the correct domain name.

Does the work group name have to be different from the domain name?

Help!

I have a XP Pro PC that won't joing a NT 4.0 domain. It says the "domain could not be contacted". Also, I can map to drive shares on the NT server but ONLY if I use the IP address of the server vs the Server name....

I know the PC is getting an IP properly. I can browse the Internet and everything under "ipconfig /all" looks right...

Is this a problem on the XP machine or the NT 4.0 server?

You PC is pulling its IP address and DNS server settings from your router. AFAIK you should have the pc setup to pull from the DC. But I haven't setup a Domain since 2000 server. I was a Netware guy for many years so I could be wrong.

I have a windows 2000 advance server that I want to join a Windows 2003 domain server. How many ways are there for joining a windows 2000 server to a domain server? Here's what I did. I right click on the My Computer icon and choose Properties/click Network Identification tab. The only option that is listed in this tab is a Properties button. I click on this Properties button and the next window shows a Workgroup and a Domain radio button. I click on the Domain radio button and type in my domain name in the texbox. I then click OK and the next window popup to type in my domain server's administrator's user name and password. I typed it in and then I receive this error:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "myDomain":
The network path was not found.

I'm positive the path is correct. I have done the same thing with 10 other computers and it's working fine. The only difference is that many other computers that I joined have the Network ID and Change button under the Computer Name tab in System Properties, and I click Network ID and that seems to work all the time. But this is a Windows 2000 advance server and it does not have the Network ID button. The only choice is Properties button. So am I doing something wrong? How many ways can I join a windows 2000 server to a domain server?

Any help is much appreciated!

Yes, have been joining machines to AD domains for 10 years, 2K , XP, Vista, 7, have always used the short domain name to join. Have been joining machines to NT domains & before that OS/2 LAN Server since ~1991.

(ie for example, domain is CONTOSO.COM then you can join the domain CONTOSO and it figures out it is CONTOSO.COM)

All WINS, DNS, AD Controller IP numbers and names are the same between a 7 machine and this 8 machine.
But 8 WILL NOT join the domain by just giving it CONTOSO, it has to have CONTOSO.COM to join. What's with that?

Anyone know how I make Windows 8 join by giving it CONTOSO?

Thanks!
