Adding NT workstation to NT Domain

By sherwala ·
I have configured a NT workstation machine. Given computer name to the machine. Added that machine to the existing domain(TIS) on the NT Server.
Now on the workstation, when I try to put the workstation in the NT Domain from Network properties it says " Domain Controller for this domain cannot be found".
ANy help much appreciated.

Check your TCP/IP settings - is it on the same subnet?
Static or dynamic IP address?
Did you specified DNS and WINS addresses?
Did you put this w/s into workgroup or domain?
Check gateway.

Yes Its on the same subnet. I have checked the TCP/IP setting.
Now on the same machine from dos prompt, If i ping the same machine like,
My workstation IP: 198.168.0.1
ping 198.168.0.1 , its should reply me. right.
But here its saying destination not reacheable.
Can you guess where the problem will be..???
Thank

It sounds like your network card is not working properly. Insure that the correct software is installed for the NIC. Try pinging 127.0.0.1 and if no response then the card is the problem.

1. Make sure you can ping your gateway and PDC.
2. Was this PC Ghosted from an image? IF yes, you need to change the SID with Ghostwalker.
3. When adding to domain make sure you have a valid ID/pswd

Same as above basically...

But go for real basics... see if the light on the back of the card is flashing.

Check the cable etc.

Ping the PDC by IP from the machine and see if you get a reply.

Once you have it on the network check the WINS addresses if the problem persists.

If you can't ping your own IP address - 192.168.0.1 - then TCP/IP is not properly binding to your NIC. Try uninstalling and reinstalling ALL network components - NIC card drivers and TCP/IP. Be sure to rerun your NT 4.0 service pack (SP6a is the latest) after doing this. Once this is done, before connecting to the network, try pinging 127.0.0.1 - this is the loopback address (just goes out to the NIC card and checks TCP/IP binding locally). If this comes back OK, reconnect to the network. Ifyou're using DHCP, be sure you leave your TCP/IP properties set to use DHCP too. Hope this helps!
