Adding a workstation to Active Directory

By raymond.caldwell@verizon. ·
I've just recently setup Active Directory on my 2000 Advanced Server at home. I have a 2000 Prof. station that I'm trying to have the server add on. But I'm having difficulty in doing so. It will not pick it up or even see it in network neighborhood. Anyone out have any ideas as to what I may doing wrong or overlooking??

The machine must be brought into the AD domain. A Domain Admin can log in to the domain and then in Setting/CP/System place the machine in the Domain.

The user must be a Domain User to use the machine within the domain

Make sure the computers are on the same IP network and the subnet mask is the same. Does ping work? Can you connect to the server using Run? (//servername/c$) If yes to all of that, use system properties, network identification tab, properties, fill in the domain name, it'll pop up with a window asking for user name and password with rights to join the computer to the domain (use the admin account on the SERVER) it'll ask you to reboot and you're set. If you can't get the computers to talk think about cabling, are you using cross-overs or a hub, if it's just a wire from one computer to the other you need a cross over. Are the NICs alive? Try forcing the NICs to 100mbs full duplex, 2000 is 'whiney' with some nics and the auto dectect forspeed.
