  • Cannot join the domain Windows Server 2003 SP2 R2

    Hello colleagues,

    I try to join the domain one of my Windows 2003 R2 servers as a member server to promote the second DC but the error occurs: "The specified network path is no longer available."
    Domain Controller has Windows Server 2003 SP2 installed.

    Any ideas?

    thank you in advance.

    yes,

    it's due to DNS....

    1. Check your DNS settings on your new box if that is pointing to right DNS server or not.

    2. Check if your DNS server is configured properly and have related info.

      This is IPCONFIG from Windows 2003 R2 that I'd like to join the domain:

        Re: Cannot join the domain Windows Server 2003 SP2 R2

        Make sure that you are joining using FQDN of domain i.e. "MCdomain.local"

        If you are using the same try to ping the domapin name and see the result:

        Ping MCdomain.local

        Verify the DNS settings in DNS console on your DC:

        make sure that MCdomain.local zone is there also make sure that all the _msdcs records are there.

        One more thing i would like to know....did you make any recent changes in the IP configuration of DC....

        Share the result...........................

          one more thing to check:

          Is DC working properly as i do not know weather it's a new setup or old one..

          On the DC just try to run \\127.0.0.1 and make sure that SYSVOL and NETLOGON shares are present....

            1. I'm joining with MCdomain.local
            2. Yes, I can ping MCdomain.local
            3. When I came to the company, the DNS settings on DC was pointing to ISP DNS. I changed only them to point to itself.
            4. I'll check _msdcs records, give me a few minutes. BTW, what records have to be there, just for comparing

                  Are there any errors within event viewer around the time you are trying to join the member server?

                  I know the member can ping the DC, but can the DC ping the member server?

                    Yes, DC can ping the member.

                    I've found a Warning LsaSrv on member server ID 40960:

                    The Security System detected an authentication error for the server DNS/mcserver.mcdomain.local. The failure code from authentication protocol Kerberos was "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
                    (0xc000005e)".

                    And Warning of MrxSmb - ID 3019:

                    The redirector failed to determine the connection type.


                    These errors occurs often

                      Is there a time difference more than 5 minutes between your server and the DC?

                        Run dcdiag on the DC and look for any errors. Looks like a name resolution issue - probably due to missing SRV records in the DNS

                          It was 2 minutes difference. I changed that and tried again. No luck yet
