Verify that Domain Name System (DNS) is available and functioning correctly. Run the Netdiag /debug command on the server in question. This will evaluate the registration of NetBIOS, DNS, and services.

See this article for more deails:;en-us;265706

If all else fails, use the NETDOM utility to force the system into the domain.

See if this helps. From a TR article found here:

Run compmgmt.msc Under services, find RPC. Change the logon info to local system account, and reboot. Be advised you may need to re-install XP2.
