Join an NT4 domain

By edrox ·
Hi,

I want to join an NT4 domain with my Win2K professional workstation so I can map drives to those NT4 servers.
How can I do this?

Thanks in advance,

Eduard

Join an NT4 domain

Hi Eduard,..
First off let me say that it is not necessary to join the domain solely to map to the shares. You can select "Map Network Drive" from the "Tools" menu of "My Computer" and just click the "differnt user name" link and follow that dialoge.
To answer your question though, Right Click the "My Network Places" icon, Click Properties, Click on the "Network Identification" link in the text to the right. On the next screen, click the "Network ID" button. Selct "Computer is part of Business Network", Select "...network with a domain". Now you need the follow the dialog, entering the domain administrator id and password and filling in the domain name.

Hi Francis,
I tried this, but it says it cannot see the computer.
The PDC also runs lotus notes, I can ping the server, I can replicate notes, but I cannot join the domain or map a drive.
Any idea?

Thanks in advance,

Eduard

Eduard,

I will assume that your W2KPro machine is able to see (ping) the NT4 PDC by name and that therefore TCP/IP is correctly configured. If it isn't then sort that out first.

To join an NT4 domain, log in to the W2KPro machine with local admin rights. Click on My Computer with the right mouse button. In the resultant dialogue box select the Network Identification tab. Then click on the properties button. From here it is essentialy the same as adding an NT4 workstation to an NT domain. Provide a unique computer name, the name of the domain and the name of an account with permission to add computers to the domain and it's password.

Et voila.

Regards,

JB.

JB,

I wish I could do this but when I enter the domain name, it gives me the message:
Domain does not exist.
When I try to map a drive to an NT server which I can ping, and I get the message: The network path cannot be found.
When I try to mapa drive to the D disk on the server from an NT4 machine it works.

Thanks,

Eduard

Right click on My Computer, Click on properties and select the Network Identification tab. Once this tab is selected click on Properties You should see the computer name, domain and work group. Type the name of the domain in the Domain field and when asked for a user name make sure you use an account that has admin rights. That should do it. Good luck

Sorry, the same as before, I cannot join the domain because it doesn't see it, eventhough I can ping it and have domain admin rights.
And am administrator on the local PC.

do you have the NetBEUI protocol configured on your PC? I had to have this configured on mine before I could connect on to my Domain.

Hi,

I have NetBEUI installed, but it doesn't help me, I even changed to be on the same VLAN as the PDC, but no help.

Sorry,

UHHM I'm going to go out on a limb here and ask if your W2k box is configured for mixed mode and not native?
You say you have domain admin rights and of course local admin rights. You should be able to ad the comp. Doesn't make sense. Thats not the? though. Is the protocol stack configured properly? I will assume that you have the user, pwd and D-name correct. Sure your not in a workgroup? And or have exceeded the limit of concurrent server connections? HAH HAH Make sure its not a IP address duplication problem. You've pict my couriosity please post your solution.

Hi,

it is an NT4 domain, we use Novell for our DS. The NT4 box has an domain which is only used by the workstations, it is our notes server, but all our NT4 WS join the domain without any problem.

I can ping the PDC which also runs Lotus Notes, I can replicate my mail, etc.
I have MS client installed, TCP/IP and IPX and everything else works.
