Changing from Workgroup to Domain

By craigrogerl ·
I am trying to change a Windows 2000 workstation from a workgroup to a domain. After i enter the password for access to the domain i get the following error message: The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials. That is as far as i can get. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Changing from Workgroup to Domain

by maxwell edison In reply to Changing from Workgroup t ...

Microsoft Knowledge Base Article. Q106211, titled, "Err Msg: The Credentials Supplied Conflict with an Existing...".

SYMPTOMS:
Windows NT (or 2000) does not allow you to make multiple connections to a shared network server from the same workstation if you attempt to use more than one set of credentials. If you attempt to make two or more connections to the same server using two or more sets of credentials, you will receive the following error message:

System error 1219 has occurred.
The credentials supplied conflict with an existing set of credentials.

RESOLUTION:
To make the connection with the other account, disconnect the previous connection(s) to the server. This behavior is by design for security purposes.

MORE INFORMATION:
A set of credentials consists of a user name and a password. Both File Manager and NET USE allow you to specify a parameter that designates which user account you want to use when you connect to a server. If you make a connection to a serverusing one account, then make another connection to the same server using a different account (with the first connection still intact), you receive the above error message. To make the connection with the other account, disconnect the previous connection(s) to the server.

Perhaps a better workaround can be found in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - Q173199, "Multiple Credentials in a Single Windows NT Session".

CAUSE:
Windows NT will attempt to use the same virtual circuit even if a different set of credentials is supplied because the resource name is identical.

RESOLUTION:
Provide the TCP/IP address of the computer instead of the computer name.

Are you logged into the local windows 2000 Pro machine w/ the administrator account? If so, you need to join the domain w/ an account other that the domain administrator account that has administrative rights to join computers to the domain. I know wierd, but it tends to work.

When I had this problem it was because the PC was linking mapped drives and running a server based program at startup.
Disable any server progs called at logon and disconnect network drives and ty to join the Domain them. You will need Administrator rights to join the new user and PC.
