Domain Computers not detecting domain

By RaphaelEidus ·
I set up a domain and put all the computers in the network on the domain. On one of the workstations there is a shared folder. When setting the permissions, I am trying to add "Domain Users" to the list of authorized users to connect to the folder, but in the location window, instead of showing the domain, it shows the local machine name.
What have I done wrong?

what happens when you try to add domain users to permission of the shared folder?

If the folder shared and listed in AD?

explain "locations".... what locations are you talking about....

computers [workstations] added to the domain will be listed in Active Directory Users and Computers under the computers OU.

situation

by Raphaeleidus In reply to well....

On the server, the computer is listed in AD, and on the other computers that can search the AD, they also see the computer.

On this computer, I cannot search the AD, and when I go to share a folder, I want to define it so only members of the "Domain Administrators" group can access the folder, I do the following:

Right Click on the folder
Click on "Sharing and Security..."
Click on the "Security" tab
Click the "Add" button
In the "From this location" box, it says the computer name instead on the domain name like it should.
If I click the "Locations..." button, the only location available is the local computer.

You can. . .

remove the machine from domain and add to domain again as a last resort. Just to be on safe side, after removing the PC from domain, go to ADUC, computers OU and remove the PC in question from the domain before adding back.

Make sure you have local admin access (not a domain account access) to the PC before removing from domain.

Issue Fixed

I had set up everything correctly, except on thing. I was not the person who set up the network originally. The person who did, set up the network on a 169.254.255.xxx system. I thought this was strange but didn't think it would be a problem. After spending countless hours, I finally decided to recreate the network from scratch and use a 192.168.xxx.xxx system. When I did this, everything started working.
