  • Network Path Cannot be Found when trying to join client pc to domain

    Hi,

    I am working on a new computer trying to attach it to our existing SBS 2003 network. \\server\connectcomputer is failing to setup the computer on the network. When I attempt to join the domain manually I get a messages saying the network path cannot be found?.

    Nslookup resolves the server but I am unable to view another aspects of the network from this pc?.

    Anyone had this issue previously?. Thanks

    Check that the DNS on the workstation is resolving to the SBS server.

      If I do an nslookup on the client computer it will resolve the servers name, I can also ping the server by name from the client computer.

        Did you mean //server/connectcomputer is failing?
        Check the direction of your slashes!

          From a command window type ipconfig /all and make sure the IP address for the DNS server matches your SBS server.

            ...and don't you mean http://server/connectcomputer ?
