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.)

Hi everyone..

Im trying to join a workstation to a domain,& am failing..

The message i get,it goes:
A domain controller for the domain could not be contacted.

Even though i did mention the Primary DNS suffix for it,but still,i get the error..

Help from anybody will be highly appreciated..

A:Computer cannot join a domain

Welcome to TSF!

The DNS address of the client must be the Domain Controller, not your ISPs DNS settings.
And of course DNS must be installed and properly configured on the Server.

Can you ping the Server by it's IP address?
Can you ping the Server by it's Name? )Server1)
Can you ping the Server by it's Full DNS Name? (Server1.domain.com)
Can you ping the Domain name? (domain.com)

To check the current DNS settings, Click Start | Run (or press WinKey+R), type cmd, press Enter.
Type ipconfig /all and press Enter.
Check the DNS addresses listed, the first one MUST be the IP address of the DC for the domain.

Hi, So I've been trying to do the following:

Image a computer, autojoin the domain in the sysprep, then on boot, rename the pc to the asset tag.

I am very close, but one problem I've encountered, is that it looks like once you are in a domain, using poweshell to rename a pc will not let you rename it if the object already exists in AD.

Is there an easy way to do this without having to modify my image to include other tools? I do not want to put the RSAT AD powershell module into the image, which I know can be used to delete AD objects. I was hoping for a native way to force it to allow me to rename the object.

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!

Check the firewall on the domain - it sounds as if the application of Group Policies may be blocking the access to Windows Update.
Specifically, check whether WSUS is being applied - and if it is, that the WSUS server is where the policy thinks it is.

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:

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.

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.

I recently upgraded to 7.5 from 6.0.

The software is excellent and works wonderfully, but I noticed something yesterday that left me a little unsettled.

I am using the software to image my production floor PC's. The are running windows 2000 and I run in a windows 2000 based domain.

The image installs, the computer account is created, and the PC is rejoined to the domain. When I do a search in the Active Directory to move the machine back to it's OU, I noticed that the Machine Role for the imaged PC's is showing up as "Domain Controller" and not "Workstation" like the non imaged PC's (or rather the Machines I imaged from v6.0). Is there anyway to make sure that doesnt happen or to change them back to the way they should be defined? I am worried I may be screwing up my directory in some way.

We have unfortunately just ended up with our first Vista machine here at work and 30 mins into my setup Ive already run into a question..

Dell, Vista Business, joined into our domain

Having googled around a bunch, I understand that the local admin account is disabled upon install.

I found a tip that recommended running cmd as admin and
net user administrator password
net user administrator activate:yes

I performed this, got command successful returned from both.. but when I try to login as <compname>\Administrator @ the login, or try to use the same to perform any tasks on the system I get denied and am told bad user or pw.

I ran user setup as domain admin and confirmed that my local user account is part of the administrator group... found that the local Administrator account was still set as disabled, so I cleared the disabled checkbox.. Im too paranoid to use "Set password" however in case my prior password did somehow work (it doesnt appear to have) and by then Setting Password I'd be screwing my admin account of its encrypted files (do I even have any if the accounts never been logged into?)

Hi NM,

If your the domain administrator, make sure the existing domain group policy (designed for XP or Vista) is not being applied to your Win7 machine as its about the only thing can be reverting your permissions.

Hello. In on of the labs I run with dual boot Linux and windows 7, I've been experiencing this issue with 2 PCs. Today I noticed one more had this issue. They were connected to my windows domain but today, when trying to login, there is no domain connection
possibility anymore  and one of the local administrators is gone too. Local Administrator password is unknown but after resetting it from a linux boot disk  I'm able to login but some of the programs have vanished while others still run.

The Bios is boot protected, so I don't think any user could boot a CD/USB to mess with the PC.
One thing I was thinking was if someone got root privileges in Linux and mount the Windows partition and mess with it. But even if someone got the root password, how come the administrator and student local accounts still exist?

Windows restore points are disable, so I think that even if the machines were not shutdown properly, they would no rollback to some inconsistent state.

Has anyone experienced something like this?
Is this some kind of hacking?
Thanks and best regards.

I am using a Windows 7 client on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Domain (and I am the Administrator of the Domain). The client that I am using is refusing to let me add addition User Accounts to the Administrator group (despite the fact that I am logged on as the Domain Administrator).


Furthermore if I attempt to log onto the client computer as the local Administrator by specifying the computer name rather than the Domain name at logon I see the following -

Finally if I then follow, these Enable the (Hidden) Administrator Account on Windows 7, 8, or Vista
instructions to enable the hidden administrator account I am met with the following message -

I have considered an offline password reset disk, however the local ('hidden') Administrator account is disabled! This feels like a catch 22, can anybody offer any suggestions on how to restore true Administrative access?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

A:Can't get true Admin access to a client computer (that is part of my work Domain)

Go to Start/Search and type netplwiz and press enter. Advanced tab/Advanced button/Users. Reset the Built in Local Administrator Password. Go to Start/Search and type sysdm.cpl and press enter /Change Take the computer off of the Domain by clicking the Workgroup radio button and rebooting. Login as Local Administrator. Now you should be able to enable the Hidden Administrator account, and any other users you want to create.
Go over to the server to AD and make sure the user account is not disabled, and that the computer is also reinstated in the network and is not part of any Group Policies. Then join the computer back to the Domain.

Hi there, around noon today I received two password reset notices. One from the place I use to register domain names and another from an online retailer (newegg.com). I immediately called the registrar and then called the retailer. I found that both accounts had been hijacked, their passwords and email addresses changed.

This is probably the most scary thing that has happened to me and I spent two weeks in a coma a few years ago. I do not want my domain names stolen, my credit ruined or my identity compromised.

The attacker seemed to have control of my email or be able to read those password reset emails by some other means.

I am posting seeking advice on how to do a thorough check of my computer. I would also like to secure my computer as completely as possible.

I will certainly appreciate any help tremendously!!

Hello. Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but there's no forum for server OS's. It's kind of networking related (?)...

I'm doing a simple task, adding a computer account to a Windows 2003 server domain. This is more of a pet-peeve since there are work-arounds, but the damn OS should operate as advertised, no?
I wanted to do it in the order:

1. In Active Directory, create computer account in appropriate OU.
2. Log on locally to new PC, join it to the domain with the account name I created in AD.

I received the error "the account already exists."

It's supposed to work. However, since it didn't, I reset the computer account in AD and still received the error message "The account already exists." Of course it does, I created it!!! Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?

Thanks in advance,
Kevin

Why wouldn't you join the pc to the domain and then move the computer into the correct OU?

okay. freshly into win7 now, having obtained a new hdd for my comp. I have been running as the admin of my computer since accounts became an unavoidable thing. barring the occasional frustration-induced blunder I tend to stay Properly Paranoid in my habits to make sure I have no problems...

but win7 doesn't think that I could ever be intelligent enough to have full rights on any account other than the built-in admin account, which of course I'd want to avoid using outside emergencies that render other accounts damaged somehow.

so I'm looking to find out how to make another user account with FULL admin rights. not just the "constantly have to get permission" stuff that a standard*snort* admin account has, full rights that don't involve constantly having to "run as administrator"

yes yes I've heard people trying to get me more paranoid so that I'd endure the added hassles, all it does is make me more irate with the situation. so if noone's willing to provide me with instruction on this, it's probably best for the thread to be left to fall off the board.

A:of win7, admin rights, admin accounts, and real admin accounts

I don't know what your problem is. To make another administrator account - Start - Control panel - User Account - 
Manage another account - Create a new account - Give it a name - put a check mark for Administrator - 
click - Create Account.

We have several Win 2000 servers tied into a domain. What I want to do is make a local admin only account on one of the servers, but when you make an account it's automatically domain admin.

Any ideas on how to do this?

Hello, I'm having trouble with trying to join my client computer to the server domain. My client is Windows 7 Professional and the server domain OS is Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard. I tried the usual method of going to System-Change Settings-Change-and entering the domain name to join. However, I get the message saying:

An active directory domain controller (ad dc) for the domain sean.local could not be contacted. Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly.

I know for a fact that the domain name (sean.local) is correct. On my DC, I have Active Directory, DHCP and DNS installed. Its weird because I could ping the server IP just fine and get a response, but when I ping the domain name (sean.local) I do not get a response. I get a message saying "Ping request could not find host sean.local. Please check the name and try again."

I think the issue I'm having with not being able to join the domain has something to deal with the DNS server. I will post the network configurations for both the client and the server domain and hopefully we could get this client to finally join the domain once and for all. Thank you everyone for your help, I appreciate it.


*Both of these machines had their IP settings manually configured, not obtained automatically.*

I log in to Windows 2003 server R2 through a domain (but on the local machine). I need my log on to be the admin over this local machine. Since the user details are stored on the domain, my username doesn't show up in local users and groups. How do I make a remote user an admin?

Hi,
 
     I run a personal server, for my own personal use, using Windows Server 2008 R2.  I have been racking my brain for the last week trying to figure out what is going on with my doman and figured I would stop here and see what you all think.  I am getting weird redirects and some of my programs are unable to connect.  I am including pictures to show what is going on.  First thing is, when I try to open facebook or some other sites I get hit with the following three things shown in the pictures below.

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!

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

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.

SO my computer can't see other homegroups on my LAN. I did some investigation and it looks like I'm suffering from my computer browser service not being able to run.
I can start the service. It runs for 2-3 seconds then it stops.
It says it's running in the status window, but it says it's stopped in the 'try to start service' window.
So clearly something's broken.
In anycase, I can websurf from this computer.
Also: Months/years ago I've had a variety of viruses of different sorts, so I assume one of the cleanup apps I've used broke it.
Can anyone help?
Thanks.
 

A:Yet Another Guy With A Computer That Can't Join Homegroup (Computer Browser?)

What's the name of the workgroup used by the other systems?
 
The Win 7 install must join that workgroup...and you don't have to use the secured homegroup at all to do so.
