unable to register with the domain

By neboland ·
About 3 months ago I was able to register with the domain at my office without any trouble. I have been unable to get it back after
1) try to set up a home network with my wireless card (Workgroup - removing domain)
2) Load Service Pack 2
3) (un)Install a VPN
I can't register with the domain(as before -through System) I get the following error

"The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain DOGEE:
The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.DOGEE
Common causes of this error include the following:
- The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.
- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:
DOGEE. (the root zone)"

I have talked to the network admin and they told me the following:
1) the domain "dogee" is registered with the dns
2) no one else has problems with the same settings, method of login, and os
3) the domain server sees my computer
4)All my settings are correct:
I am opperating my ethernet controller with Client for Micros. Net., File sharing, and TCP/IP
The TCP/IP settings are: tried fixed IP (verified)and DHCP, DNS-verified (I tried appending the suffix of the domain server), (I have tried adding the WINS server and without).

2 interesting observations I have thought might be leads to the problem
1)In my system event viewer (component services) there is a reoccuring error "MRxSmb event ID:8003"
2)My login screen for Windows doesn't have a domain option now.
Note: internet and ping to dns work, I just can't use the domain resources
and I have turned off Windows Firewall

The most likely cause of your issue is that your workstation has lost the secure RPC session with the domain controller.

You will need to the domain administrator to perform the following steps:

Just as an aside, this is the third time I have seen this same issue in the technical Q&A this week.

Sorry BFilmFan, I don't think you really read my post thoroughly. I am NOT getting "Account Disabled" but I tried the reset anyway to no avail. Note: there are other Windows XP Pro computers logged into the domain with no problem - the server is NT 4.0

I may have misunderstood you but it sounds like you've "unjoined" the domain when you were messing around with your home network. I'm assuming that you're dealing with a laptop? You will have to get your network admin to re-join the domain.

Yes, I believe I "unjoined" the domain (laptop-yes). We are trying to rejoin (Control Panel-System-Computer Name-Network ID Wizard) but then I get the error I posted above

From responses below, I do believe that the problem started when I switched to a Workgroup configuration. Now however, I am unable to return because my computer is looking for a SRV record that doesn't exist and doesn't need to exist. My computer worked fine before and other XP pro machines still work fine with out it. Perhaps the question is "How can I get Windows to stop looking in the wrong place for verification of the domain controller?"

This might be a bit of a long shot but I have seen many an issue arising from not having the DC, or the Active Directory designated machine, as the primary DNS. If you had to change this for the home setup, you might have some issues. Another question: Do you connect at work through your wireless card, and if not, have you uninstalled it (this may not be even a remote cause, but there are some longshots that seem to work).

This is probably a long shot, but do you have your cat5 cable plugged into the WAN port on your wireless unit? If so, you need to configure it to access your ISP. Plug it into another port and the problem goes away.

Thanks, but I am not connected by wireless at work. I am connected by wireless at home, but I don't need Domain help there - it works fine. At work I am connected through a LAN ethernet, I get online fine, email fine, the only thing that doesn't work is connecting to the domain and its resources.

I connect at work by Ethernet and at Home by Wireless.

THANK YOU for all who gave their input to this problem. As it turned out three days of research just paid off when I found the following string regarding NT servers and XP machines:
http://www.mcse.ms/message1350034.html
Essentially it boiled down to writing the LMHOSTS File explicitly to include the domain server. To write the file see:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;314108
Following the instructions posted on microsoft's support page has fixed my problem (I am still not sure how or why it happened though).
Again thank you to those who posted suggestions.
