XP can't locate domain controller
csm101 Feb-16-02 11:54 PM
Server: Windows NT, using a domain (TCP/IP and NETBEUI protocols installed).

Workstation: Windows XP (TCP/IP and NETBEUI protocols installed).

When trying to join the XP Workstation into the domain I recieve the following error message:

A domain controller for the domain <mydomain> couldn't be contacted.

I'm not a networking expert so I would greatly appreciate if advice comes in very plain english.

Thank you very much!

Try removing NetBEUI from all PCs on the network. I found I had to do that with XP. Larry
