Netdom for W2K wkst 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. This computer was a member of the domain, I placed an old Ghost image on the drive and now I want to re-establish the trust without having to re-add it to the domain and rebooting. I am using the following syntax
netdom member \\<Computername> /joindomain
I get the following error.

C>netdom member \\<computername> /joindomain
NetDom 1.7 @1997. Written by Christophe Robert (chrisrob@microsoft.com).

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

I believe you have to use NETDOM from Win2k Support Tools, not NETDOM ver 1.7 from NT4 Reskit

There is a "fixed" version of netdom (ver 1. at ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/reskit/nt4/x86/
You could also try a batch file using netdom member /delete then netdom member /add.
