Domain issue with XP pro

By singhjunk ·
I get the following error message when I try to browse the domain from an XP machine.

<domain name> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
you have access permissions.

I had joined my computer to the domain just fine.
I then took the computer off the domain joined it to workgroup and try to join it.

I get the following error message:-

Couldn't contact the domain. Please check if you
have typed in the correct domain name.

I made sure everything is correct.

Just seems to be XP PRO. Please help...

Thanks,
John

well, when you get to the logon screen where you type in your user name and password, you'll see another line "domain" where you can choose which domain to log onto [or log on locally]. Make sure your choose the correct domain that your trying to log on to.

Make sure that the SRV resource records are in your internal DNS tables.
If not you may have to do 1 of two things on your internal (AD) DNS server.

1) From a command prompt:
a) net stop netlogon
b) ipconfig /flushdns
c) ipconfig/registerdngs
d) net start netlogon
If you four SRV resource records were not there before they should appear shortly.

2) If the records do not show up the just uninstall DNS and reinstall it.. remember what records where in there before so you can add them back to avoid potential problems and phone calls.

Hope this helps..
