    When joining a Windows XP Pro SP2 computer to a SBS 2003 Server SP1 domain, I get the error

    The following error occurred attempting to join the domain “rolfbusiness.local”:
    The format of the specified network name is invalid.

    Any ideas?

      What is the AD domain name that you created when you installed the server? You can also use the NetBIOS domain name instead of the FQDN. The error message seems to indicate a problem with AD, possibly with DNS on your server.

      Alternatively, are you seeing this error on just one workstation or on every workstation you try to join to the domain? Is the Windows XP firewall on? If so, try turning it off.

      Hope this helps!

        Hi, and thanks for the advice!

        I have decided to reinstall the server (it’s only a test server anyway) and start over, trying to do everything by the book. There were other problems too, so a reinstall will probably be faster and more effective than hours of research and troubleshooting. Hopefully the new server will be more acceptable to the clients… 😉
