How to Fix Issues with Joining Client Computer to Server Domain?

Q: How to Fix Issues with Joining Client Computer to Server Domain?

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.*

Client:

local:
IP address: 10.0.0.7
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 10.0.0.1
Preferred DNS server: 10.0.0.1

server:
IP address: 10.0.0.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 10.0.0.1
Preferred DNS server: 10.0.0.1

Hello!
I have a little problem. I am running XP on a workstation and i need to join a domain on win2000 server. When i try it as usual (and as it is working on EVERY other my computer running also XP), i get immediately an error, that it canť reach the domain controller. I don't know why, because i get IP/DNS from the server as normal.
I suspect the comodo firewall blocking ut, but no message pops up, and no logs are saved.

Can anyone help? Its really only on this workstation, and there is

XP sp2, comodo, Spybot, SG, Avast

on every other computer (even with vista) it works, so i suppose the server is working fine.

Not sure if anyone has experience with setting up windows 7 computers on a domain, but I'm running into an issue at work that I've decided to post on several forums in hope of a solution


This is an example of what I need to have set:
Domain name: a.b.buffalo.edu
Primary DNS suffix: c.buffalo.edu



The problem is joining the domain results in:

"Changing the Primary Domain DNS name of this computer to "c.buffalo.edu" failed. The name will remain "a.b.buffalo.edu".

So it remains computer.a.b.buffalo.edu instead of computer.c.buffalo.edu. I then need to specify the correct DNS suffix, enter my domain credentials, and reboot again.



I have tried setting the Primary DNS Suffix through group policy for the OU and by modifying the registry entry for the primary DNS suffix but both of these methods result in the following error at logon:

"The security database on the server does not have a computer account for this workstation trust relationship"

A:Primary DNS Suffix issues when joining domain

Not sure if bumping is frowned upon, but does anyone have experience with this DNS suffix issue?

I am trying to join the new computer to the domain but when I type in his user name and password I get the error that there are conflicting credentials. His old computer may be a member of the domain using his user name and password and therefore his new computer cannot use the same user name and password. Is this correct? What needs to be done?

We have been getting sporadic reports from our users of the error, "The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed."  The workaround has been to dejoin and rejoin the domain, but it keeps happening and we need a permanent
fix.  We are primarily a laptop shop.
It has been suggested we disable the automatic machine accouint password change on our domain members in GPO.  While this may be a viable option with relatively low security risks, I'd really like to figure out why it's happening and try to
fix it. 
The machines can lose the trust relationship at random.  It can happen overnight, or after going into hibernation.  I've had it happen to me a few times.  The DCs (we have 2) both show error 5722, but one is spitting out a specific Kerberos
error that the other one is not:

While processing an AS request for target service krbtgt, the account kriegesh did not have a suitable key for generating a Kerberos ticket (the missing key has an ID of 2).
The requested etypes : 18. The accounts available etypes : 23  -133  -128  3  1. Changing or resetting the password of kriegesh will generate a proper key.
My main issue is trying to determine why this continues happening and if we can resolve it without disabling the account password.  If that IS our best option, then so be it.  Any
thoughts are welcome.
Thank you very much in advance!  ~Sarah

Hopefully this explanation doesn't get too lengthy, but here it goes:

I'm fairly computer literate, and can solve most issues quickly (Just found this site and hope to be able to offer advice to others as well now too!), however when it comes to servers and networking, I'm at an absolute loss. I work for a small business, and also double as the general everyday IT guy (basic issues and software installation, etc...). Our server has run problem free for years, so I've never had to attempt anything involving it.

I did a fresh reinstall on one of our workstations the other day, and now the computer will no longer connect to the domain. My understanding of how this all works is limited to using the domain connection wizard - my knowledge of looking up/changing/fixing DNS/IP issues is EXTREMELY limited. I have an internet connection, and can connect to the server drives as long as I provide the server account credentials (not this computer's account), however most of our software will not function properly this way. We have several deadlines approaching rapidly, and I need to get this problem solved ASAP in order to meet those deadlines. I can provide any relevant information, logs, etc... if you're specific about how to get them. Here's the information from the SysInfo utility:

A:Joining an NT domain

It may not be possible, or if it is possible you'd have to deactivate so much security on the win 7 box that it may as well be Win3.11.

Are any of the DCs on the same segment? Pre-AD BDCs advertise their presence by registering themselves in the 0x1C group in WINS, in addition to the unique 0x1B registration for the PDC. If your win7 box is not within broadcast range, you'd need either WINS (*shudder*) or an LMHOSTS file.

A packet trace is the best way to troubleshoot network interop issues (www.wireshark.com). If you generate a trace of the failed domain join attempt, zip it up, and upload it here, someone may be able to spot the problem.

Why not ask the Admin of the Domain what the requirements are.

They would need to add you to the Active Directory of the Domain before you can connect.

If you are worried about them accessing your files then turn off Network Discovery and File and Printer Sharing etc. in the Advanced Sharing settings.

I don't see a reply. Even though this is an old post, I'll try to close it out with a response.
Yes, you must have the Pro version, and yes it will cost you close to $100, maybe less for students.

Your might as well upgrade to 8.1 if your haven't. It is free.

BUT... be careful. Your upgrade registration must match the version you are running.
If you buy a 8.0 upgrade to Pro, apply that before you make the free upgrade to 8.1.

If you are already at 8.1, be sure to buy the 8.1 upgrade to Pro.

I hope that is clear.

Good luck.

Just so I have this straight:

If someone wants to join a domain, they log in as usual and go through

control panel > system > computer name > change,

they then enter the name of the domain they wish to join, get the administrator to enter his/her log on and password in the pop-up box, and hit enter. After a restart, they will be members of the domain, and still have their documents and settings and desktop all the same, correct? Just making sure.

Since yesterday, I have a user that has been denied access to my domain in the middle of the day. Nothing has changed on her profile, or on her access rights. I have set her password, remove and rename her pc from the domain, and now I get this " the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer"

Any advice will be appreciated.

A:error when joining a domain.

Normally a user in a Domain enviornment does not have the rights to join a Domain, it has to be an administrator account.

I would like to authenticate to a domain server without actually joining the domain. The reason is that I would like to use the central password database, but I still want to run my own machine and not be limited by all kinds of policies.

Is this possible? If so, any idea how?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Welcome to the Windows 7 forums.

If your trying to map a drive to a share on the server, most will let you do that by using the map option. and selecting use other userid putting your userid and password in the correct place.. If you have a userid on the server, there should be no problem.

If what you want to do is to use the Active Directory on the server, your kind of out of luck unless your an administrator on the server.

Which is it?

Pooya1072, Welcome to the windows 7 forum.

Are you saying that the "Change Settings" is greyed out. and are you logged on as administrator?

My Vista Ultimate machine has been working fine as part of an AD domain. However, suddenly it dropped out of the domain and into WORKGROUP mode. I can add it manually but after the first reboot it drops out again.

Thanks.

A:Problem joining AD domain

I was able to resolve the issue described in this post and wanted to document it for others.

PROBLEM:
Vista Ultimate machine suddenly falls out of the AD domain membership. Computer can be manually added to the domain but upon restart, it drops out again.

CAUSE:
Failed (incomplete) installation of the Altiris agent, AClient.exe. The network support group had released a silent push install to all computer clients via the Altiris Deployment Server.

SOLUTION:
Force remove Altiris agent by navigating in a command window to the installation folder, in this case c:\program files\altiris\aclient\ and issuing the command aclient /remove /silent. Client was subsequently reinstalled by network support group.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

I want to join my office domain from my home PC so I can access those network drives and be part of the office network. Is that possible even from home? And if so, which path do I follow to connect? Thanks

A:Joining Work Domain

In theory it is possible. Whether or not it is possible in your specific situation depends on the configuration of your office network. You need to consult the office IT staff. Only a domain administrator can join your computer to the domain.

Hi i have recently setup a vpn server using routing & remote services on Windows Server 2008 R2 i can connect from a Windows 7 client and able to map shared drives from the client to the server successfully.

However i cannot resolve the remote servers domain name in order to join the domain from the client.

my local addressing scheme is:
router: 10.0.0.1
windows 7 wireless adapter: 10.0.0.18
VPN Connection: 10.0.0.90 (this is getting it from DHCP from remote server)

remote server addressing scheme:
router: 10.0.0.138
windows server ip: 10.0.0.10
dns server: 10.0.0.10

not sure why its not resolving and why i cannot join

Does anyone know of any utility/program available that will enable me to make an XP Home Edition PC join a Domain?
 

A:XP Home joining Domain

Ummm...No, XP Home will never be able to join a domain. You can access domain resources, but you will need to authenticate every time you access that resource. You have to have a user account set up on the DC and or you will never get into the resources.

Event ID 7031 is a print spooling error are you running a networked printer? The Print Spooler service stops responding and Event ID 7031 is logged into Windows 2000 or in Windows Server 2003

i have a SBS running on SBS 2003. I am trying to make a PC with Windows 7 and another one with a vista to join this domain by right clicking on computer-properties-change settings-change on the computer tab-domain name-ok. however, the computer refuses to join the domain saying that the domain name server is not found, please check the domain name and type it correctly. This is despite the fact that I have been able to hook on other PCs with windows XP to the same domain with the same procedure. The IP scheme is also right. probably Im skipping some steps or settings. please help.

This is my first post on this site, and I just want you guys to know that I tried my best before making this post, but I just can't seem to solve this problem.

We have a domain with all workstations running Windows XP. The server is Windows 2000 Server. A new computer running Windows XP x64 Edition is trying to connect to the domain but is getting the following error.

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain_name";
The account is not authorized to log in from this station.

I tried the following settings in local security settings:

Digitally sign client communications (always) - disabled
Digitally sign server communications (always)- disabled
Digitally sign server communications (when possible) - disabled
LAN Manager Authentication Level set to Send LM and NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated - (default) send LM & NTLM responses
Secure channel: Digitally encrypt or sign secure channel data (always) - disabled
Secure channel: Require strong (Windows 2000 or later) session key - disable

Unfortunately this did not solve the problem. Thanks a lot to anyone that even attemps to help me think of the solution to this problem.

Hello all,

I've set up a Windows server within my home network and everything is functioning great except the little annoyance described below. The roles it currently has is Active Directory Domain Services, DHCP, DNS, and File Services.

It seems that after joining the one machine to the domain (the other is Win10 Home and unable), certain restrictions have been applied to the workstation. Simple stuff like changing of the time, lock screen, etc. that are now greyed out. What is displayed in red with these permission issues is "some settings are managed by your organization". Also, the joined Win 10 never had a lock screen set until this join.

I have looked through the security policy and group policy settings in Server 2008 R2 Enterprise and have yet to come by any related settings. Is this issue from the server or some type of default when another user is added and/or joining a domain? Settings are greyed with either user on the joined machine.

Btw, joined machine is Win 10 Education and the other Home. The Home machine is still networked with the server, on servers DHCP, etc. but unable to join the domain and therefor is not effected by this.

Thanks

A:Win 10 and permissions once joining domain

Hi, this message is somewhat misleading, and may arise from several possible causes. It is very common. For example, simply changing Privacy settings may mean you see it.

Have a look through the attached which I've gathered from various sources and threads and my own experience. It may help you.. on the other hand, as we're all on a learning curve, you may have encountered a different cause.
Some settings are managed by your organization.doc

Sometimes, related to this, you may find that some Settings e.g. Privacy, Feedback & Diagnostics, or Location (see e.g. the Location tile in the Action Centre) may not not available (tile greyed out).

And sometimes Cortana is disabled and displays a similar message.

Are you using a proxy server?

Just for grins, post an MGADiag from one of the failing machines.


Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report - then we can see what the problem is.
