Problem in joining a Domain

By zakisahmed ·
I am using Windows 2000Pro, and trying to connect to a Domain for which I have an account, but while joining the domain I received an error message saying "The scurity Database on the server does not have the computer account for this workstation trust relationship".

Although I can connect to the same domain from a Win98 system without any error.

What shall I Do ?

you have two options :
1. create a computer accuont for the computer on the domain controler.
2. when you join the domain you need to give a name and password with an administrator rights .
win9x dont need to have computer accuont in the domain win2k pro need to have one

Are you trying to attached to a corporate domain with a personal machine? Sounds like your trying to plug your laptop in the desktop jack or visa-a-versa. User account good; missing machine account(sid), follow suggestions given in response 1, if you have the proper authorization from systems admin.

OK, rollback a little. Get a new hostname for the workstation - do not create a computer account on the server. Make sure the workstation is a member of a WORKGROUP. Reboot. Then right click MY COMPUTER, PROPERTIES, NETWORK IDENTIFICATION, click theNetwork ID button and follow the Wizard.

If this doesn't work, first check that you're not using IPSEC unless you should be (in which case check the settings), then check in the LOCAL SECURITY POLICY to make sure you don't have any restrictions on SECURE CHANNELS and LAN MANAGER AUTHENTICATION.

You personally may have a user name on the domain, This does not mean that any workstation you log on to will have an account.
To join a domain from a windows 2k pro workstation can involve 2 or 3 reboots,
First log onto the local machine with an administrative password, Then Right Click on 'My Computer' and select Properties, Select the 'Network Identification' tab, You will see the Computer name and the current Domain/Workgroup name and 2 buttons, Click the Properties button then Rename theComputer and if a Domain is selected click the Workgroup radio button and type in a group name ( any will do it is not going to be there long enough to register with the browse master) then click Ok, A dialog will tell you to reboot to make the changes, then click Ok on the System Properties Dialog, You will get the message to reboot now which you will need to do. When the system has started again log on to the machine as an administrator and repeat the Right click and properties select steps to the network ID tab, This time Select Domain and type in the Domain name for your network, When you click Ok a dialog will appear asking for a name and password for an account with rights to allow the machine to join the domain, When you provide these details and submit the form there will be a delay while the account is created You should then be presented with a message dialog saying 'Welcome to XXXXXXX domain' When you click Ok on this you will then get the Reboot to make these changes, Again keep clicking Ok and then reboot, This time when the machine starts there will be 3 entry boxes on the log on dialog, If you can only see 2 click on the 'Options' button and the 3rd one will either open or close. If you now provide your Domain Log-on name and password, Select the domain in the 3rd box you will be able to access the domain resources.
