  • Cant join domain n Nslookup error

    I did a upgrade on my XP home to XP pro. So i try to change from workgroup "example.net" to Domain "example.net" Firstly it coame out a prompt for user name and password. Then after i key in the details and enter, it came out an Error

    "The following error occurred attempting to join "example.Net" : The network name cannot be found."

    I did a nslookup in command prompt and i get error :

    "***cant find server name for address 192.168.1.1: Non-existent domain
    ***Default server are not available
    Default server: Unknow
    Address: 192.168.1.1

    The IP "192.168.1.1" is my Domain controller address which is also the dhcp server\proxy\DNS for this XP machine.
    The XP machine can surf the internet, ping the above IP address (192.168.1.1) and the domain "example.net" . But cant join "example.net"

    What can be the problem?? Thanks

    Just type the netbios name: EXAMPLE

    Try again.

    If this do not work then you must see you you have the apropriated records on the DNS.

      After some changes done to the DNS scope/zone. Now when i type "NSLOOKUP" at XP pro , it came out :
      Default Server : Kids.master.net
      Address: 192.168.1.1

      Dats is my DNS runing on the win2k server also the DC. SO why do i still get the "The Network Name cannot be found " Error? When i try to join the domain "master.net" ?

        Do you have made what i said on the previous post?

        on the domain just type MASTER.
        Then you will be prompt for admin and password.
        What kind of AD are we talking? W2k3? ServicePack's?

          Master.net (the full FQDN) should always work and is preferred to just 'master'. If it does not work, there is probably a problem with DNS. Trying the netbios name just hides the real problem. Please check the following.

          - client DNS in TCP/IP settings points to DC
          - DC DNS in TCP/IP settings points to self (192.168.1.1)
          - In the DNS service have a forwarder defined to the DNS of your ISP.

          If you had to change the settings on the DC, a reboot is in order.

            Yes, my Client DNS in TCP/IP points to the DC ( I set it)
            and my DC DNS in tcp/ip also point to self( I set it)
            How do i have a forwarder define to the dns of my ISP???
            And wat do u mean by "just type master" ?

              The forwarder is just needed to resolve internet addresses. It's in the properties of the DNS server. Right now you should already be able to join the domain.

              If it still fails,
              - did you reboot?
              - do you have a firewall on the DC that is blocking the client?

                  After many test, i finally found the answer. After i realised my Admin$ n IPC $ was missing, i created it again. after dat it came out another error when i join the domain. "The specifed server cannot perform the requested operation" This turn out to be an Domain Controller problem. After some search , This was done "Removed the H323 Gateway using netsh as follows, "netsh routing ip nat delete h323"
                  And after dat, Hoo HAH!! Done! i manage to join the domain

                  Thanks, Forums

                  But i cant enable the forwarder as the win2k server is a root server. so what can be done regarding the ping??

                    well done...

                    remove de "." root zone.
                    then you're allowed to enable forwarders.

                      Thanks u are rite, after i removed the "." root zone i am really able to enable it. But wat are the address i should add in the forwarders? Is it my adsl modem IP or the DNS itself? Cos these are the only 2 address in my server.

                          I am soory but i am really lost here. My ISP never give me any DNS IP before. And my WIn2k server can ping www.yahoo.com. Below is the IPconfig of my win2k server:

                          NIC 1 (Connecting to LAN)
                          IP Address : 192.168.1.1
                          DHCP Enable: NO
                          Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
                          Default Gateway:
                          DNS server: 192.168.1.1

                          NIC 2 (Connecting to ADSL Modem)
                          IP Address : 10.0.0.5
                          Subnet Mask : 255.0.0.0
                          DNS: 10.0.0.2
                          DHCP: 10.0.0.2
                          Default GAteway: 10.0.0.2

                          My XP IPCONFIG
                          IP address : 192.168.1.5
                          SUbnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
                          DNS: 192.168.1.1
                          DHCP: 192.168.1.1
                          Default Gateway: 192.168.1.1

                          Any idea??

                            go to start /run / hhtp://10.0.0.2

                            Now you will see the router configuration page.
                            Can you see the dns entries?

                              Yes, but there is no number there. So i add in 192.168.1.1 as dhcp proxy n dhcp server in the 10.0.0.2.

                              And when i run netdiag in the win2k server, it mention 192.168.1.1 DNS not properly register in 10.0.0.2.
