  • Network path not found when joining a domain

    I recently received this error on one of my domain controllers for my Windows Server 2003 Domain when trying to join a computer to the domain.

    "The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "domain.com":
    The network path was not found."

    I've tried a dozen time without success and all the IP configurations are correct.

    I've stopped windows firewall for the client and server.

    And when I run the dcdiag, it displays the next summary:

    Domain Controller Diagnosis

    Performing initial setup:
    Done gathering initial info.

    Having these two errors. I don't know how to fix them, and the strange thing is that this domain was working fine.

    I have a hunch for this being that my client pc cannot start the netlogon service, my domain controller runs this service but it displays this error in the dcdiag.

    What to do, any suggestions or answers???

    Anything in the eventviewer?
    Is the Sysvol/netlogon being shared on the DC?
