The XP Pro systems should be joining the AD domain. Domains do not join workgroups.

If you have XP Home, those systems cannot be a member of a domain; thus, the workstations will nto be able to join the domain.

if its a windows xp pro workstation click start, navigate control panel [in classic view] system, [or in xp standard view] performance and maintenance, then system. click on computer name tab on the system properties page. On that page you will see a radio button "change" . click the button and follow the prompts to join the domain. you must use a domain administrator account [or domain enterprise admin account] to join the workstation to the domain.

But from cliend to Server, it does not responses.

As well, i am not still able to join with the domain.

First make sure your DNS entry on the client points to DNS server on AD server otherwise it won`t see AD properly.
Second when you join the domain it will ask for username and password with rights to create the computer account for you (based on PC's computername).

I am glad someone else is having this problem. As a network supervisor I have the same problem with a brand new computer -- it is running Windows XP Pro - and I CANNOT get it to join the domain, which is running on our WIN2k Server at work. I have spent hours on the phone with the machine's manufacture, playing stump the techie. Normally, joining a new computer to the domain at my place of business is a very simple thing -- not this time. We disabled the Firewall in the Windows security Center, uninstalled the version of Norton that came pre-installed on the machine. We created the computer account on the server, checked the password of the domain administrator, ran diagnostics on the new machine, and all is working properly. All results the same, when I try to change from workgroup to domain, it refuses - "Can't see the domain, make sure the name is correct". Anyone Else?
