WinXP system won't join domain from console task

Created: 30 Aug 2010 | 2 comments

Hi,

I'm trying to track down why our XP clients will no longer automatically join the domain.  On the client, the ngctw32.log file throws 15 error messages that the client "...Failed to resolve domaincontroller.x.y.edu".  We just updated and renamed our domain controllers to Windows Server 2008 R2.  Any ideas?

Hello, It looks like you have dns problems on the client machines.

I found it.  It was related to the domain controllers being moved to Server 2008 R2.

Applying the update for XP found on http://support.microsoft.com/kb/944043/en-us fixed the problem.
