Netdom for W2K in an NT4 domain

By deborah.friedrich ·
I can not get the NETDOM command to work to re-establish the trust on a W2K workstation in an NT4 domain. I am using the following syntax
netdom member \\Computername /joindomain
I get the following error.

C>netdom member \\computername /joindomain

I am logged on as administrator. I never have any trouble doing this with my NT4 workstations. What am I missing?

I do not have an immediate solution to your problem but I guess you can aslo help me. I am installing NT4.0 server as a BDC in a 2000 domain .During setup I cannot get the BDC to join the domain. I get the following error " The computer account is either invalid or does not exist." When I try to first add the Computer account on the 2000 domain acting as the domain controller I get the following error during setup when I try to join the domain " The computer account is already in use on the network . Is there a way I can get around this problem.
