Vista Ultimate unable to join the Domain
Hi fellows

I have set up our network with over 25 computers using XP and we have 5 new computers with Windows Vista Ultimate ( and for some reason ) we cannot make them part of the domain ( the 5 of them)

funny eh!

well as I said the computers we have with XP was a treat no problem, just a smooth ride. but I am running out of ideas of what this could be.

(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR

cannot resolve the DNS

can you please advise

Re: Vista Ultimate unable to join the Domain
First you should decide if you want a Domain or a Workgroup. for 25 computers both can do well.

In a Workgroup you just have to put the right IP in the Properties for TCP/IP v4 only (forget the other protocols), do not use DNS and in Advanced - WINS just enable NetBios through TCP/IP. In the network center you shall configure every computer in the same WORKGROUP name, and enable Network detection and sharing files and printers if it is the case.

In a Domain you need a computer as Server and in the TCP/IPv4 you should configure for Automatic IP assignement from The DSP and DHCP. In Advanced, enable the use of sufixes. and the default configuration of WINS.

Anyhow you still have to enable/disable the Net services, in the Firewall, for your preferences.
