Adding XP machine to an existing network

By internetranking ·
The network is Windows 2003 server with a Domain Controller, DHCP, and using DNS.

I am adding a XP client to the network and it is able to map drives located on the server and has a listing in both DHCP and DNS. The system would appear that it is working fine but is unable to browse the Entire network. It does not matter if I am logged on as admin or another user that has the abilty to browse the entire network. If I logon to another client machine I am able to browse the network successfully.

I am not sure why I am able to map drives but it appears that it is not part of the network.

Any suggestions on things to test or configurations to look at? I am new to AD but comparing the settings to other clients that have been successfully operating on this configuration for a long time appear to the same.

I'm taking it for granted that you've added this

Machine to the Servers List of valid Computers that can connect to it right?

If you have do you have sufficient Terminal Services/CAL's for the extra Computer?

If you don't you will be kicked off the server and not allowed to connect while all the Terminal Services/CAL's are in use.

Lets know how you get on.

I am not using Terminal Services at this time. I do have it loaded on the network for a future software upgrade taking place later on this year.

Well which version of 2003

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to Type Connection

Are you running and how many computers are involved?

Any version of 2003 Server has an upper limit of concurrent connections available so you have to use either Terminal Services or CAL's for additional Computers to connect to their Network and work correctly. The Small Business Versions of Server comes with 5 CAL's or Terminal Services depending on which you initially employ and then you have to start to add additional Licenses to allow extra computers to access the Server. That could very well be your problem as you have exceeded th upper limit of concurrent connections available so this particular computer is not being accepted into the Network.

Recently I was working with a 2003 Server that was setup as a Workgroup member but it still needed additional CAL's to allow the extra computers to access it in that particular case it required 2 X % pack CAL's to work and allow the extra computers on the network to access the Server.

The system is up and running currently and has less than 100 users at this time. I still have room to grow.

Just for giggles, have you tried deleting the computer account from the network and then adding it back?

The client is running XP Pro and not XP Home, right?

Removed and Added Back

by internetranking In reply to Remove and add back.

I removed the listing and still no success.

It is an XP Pro machine. I am guessing one of the few remaining XP machines being built.

Thanks
