Win XP cannot connect to SBS2003 server

by raza In reply to Win XP can not connec to ...

You need to create a user account in SBS 2003 server. During the account creation SBS2003 will give you a pop-up message saying that in order to connect to server please use the following link it is usually like this

https://yourservername/connectcomputer. When you hit return it will give you network setup option. by running that option you are actually connecting your desktop to SBS2003 domain.
Hope thsi will help
