Trust Relationship XP to Win2K PDC

By tech ·
I have one domain with a PDC. A XP workstation can see the domain controller and can map a drive on that PC. However when I attempt to add a user on the XP so the user can access a shared zip drive I get an error "trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed". My research into Help, TechRepublic and Google Groups did not turn up the solution.

Any ideas?

It sounds like you only added the user's account on the XP computer. Without an account on the domain, the user will not be able to access any domain resources.

Is this XP Professional or Home edition?

I've been told that the Home edition will not join a domain. You can use it on a network in more a peer to peer fashion, you can just actually join and authenticate with a domain controller.

Excerp from: Microsoft Knowledge Base Article - Q295017

"NOTE: Home Edition is not designed to join domains; only workgroups. To join domains, use Professional version or above."

The XP is XP Pro - the user I want to add is a member of the domain - as is the computer the user sits at.
