W2K Pro interaction with NT4.0 Domain

By bhamidi ·
There is a problem when I tried to log on to NT4.0 domain through W2K Pro, It says your computer must have an acount on domain server, I have no problem when login through Win98.
The question is how can I log on to NT4.0 domain through W2k Pro withthe same authentication that I use through Win98 ?
Thanks

W2K Pro interaction with NT4.0 Domain

Have you tried loging on to the domain using the domain/Admin account from your win2k box? If you cannot logon with domain/Admin, then you need to create a computer account in the domain, this can be done from the network identification wizard. Another concern is that the computer names are the same between 98 & 2k, I've never tried it, but the DC may be expecting %computername% to identify itself as 98 when your loging on from 2k

The computer names are the same both in W2k Pro and Win98, I have Admin access to W2k Pro but it is not a domain controller and I don not have Admin access to the NT4.0 domain, So how can I create a computer account in the NT4.0 domain ?
The question is NT4.0 domain really needs a computer account for the user who tries to log on through W2K ?!

That is no problem. You need to make sure that the Windows 2k has an account in the domain or you can use the pass trough authentication if you don't have you w2k system installed on the domain.
On W2k, you also have to add the users from the domain in the local system to use the system. This is under Control Panel> Administrative tools> Computer Management, in the Local Users and Groups. This is where you set up all the local users that can use the workstation.
To install your W2k system on the domain, you can just add the Computer name in the Server Maniger on the Win4.0 Domain Controler by goting to Computer> Add to Domain and typeing in the computer name and hitting the ADD button.
Also, on your Win98 and 2kPro system, check and make sure that you are using the same username and password on the domain and on the 98 systems your not using the windows logon to store your logon info for the domain logon.

Hope this helps.

You don't need full admin privliges to add a computername to a domain. You only need to have something higher than the basic user properties. Otherwise, just have your W2k on a workgroup (named the same as the domain) and logon to it with a username that has the logon rights to the domain and you can access the directories and files on the domain as though you are loged on to the domain. This has limited use, but it will work and you can work until you get the machine name added into the domain.

We experienced the same problem. Here's what we do:Load all application software logged into the Workstation as the Domain Administrator.
A. Make sure the Icons for the application are in the All Users Profile.
B. Check the security of each Icon you have to move to make sure it has everyone

Check the Folder for the Application you just loaded to assure that everyone has full permissions.

Each user should be set up with Administrative tools as a local user.
A. Select Settings, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management

Each User must additionally be set up using Users & Passwords. Users & Passwords allows you to assign rights to the local PC when the user is logged into the Domain.

I had simular trouble, then went to the source MS.
Search for Article ID Q258832

If you can't ping the PDC and Net view command says the domain does not exist, try this.

Go to Start--> Settings--> Network and Dial up Connection

Right-ClickLocal Area Connection then properties.

Click Internet Protocal TCP/IP, the properties.

Click Advanced, then WINS tab.

Enable NETBIOS over TCP/IP
and exit.

Disregard empty WINS address notification.

After I made the change I was able to browse my network.

Good Luck!
