Vista in a Domain

by gsquared In reply to Windows Vista in Windows ...

I'm using Vista in a Server 2000 domain right now (the computer I'm writing this from).

I'm not sure how that differs from what you're doing, since I'm only occasionally a domain admin and haven't worked with NT in about a decade.

As far as joining it to a W2K domain, it was just the usual procedures. No big deal.

That probably doesn't help much, but it's as much as I can tell you.

can join to NT domain

by monyo In reply to Windows Vista in Windows ...

As far as I examined, Windows Vista Business (MSDN version) can join to an NT Domain (Windows NT Server 4.0 SP6).

You must change "NTLMv2 only" in LAN Manager authentication level to "Send NTLM only" or below on Windows Vista side, and Create its machine account with Server Manager first on Windows NT side.

Vista Settings for Win NT

by Shaunzy In reply to Settings

I have not yet been able to get Vista to connect, however; HP reps (my PC mfr) says to make sure these settings are made:
<> Load Link Layer Topology Discovery (LLTD) responder onto a PC on your network so this layer can be detected by Vista.
<> The link is: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=4F01A31D-EE46-481E-BA11-37F485FA34EA&displaylang=en
<> Also go through the following information regarding file and print sharing in Vista.
1. click on the Windows Logo (Pearl Button formerly call the start button)
2. click on Control Panel
3. Clik on Network and Internet.
4. Click on Network File Sharing in the list.
5. Click on File Sharing (where you will Find a down Arrow Button) (V)
6. Click on Turn on File Sharing (radio button).
7. Clik on Apply.

After this you need to turn on the network Discovery.
Here are the steps.
1. click on the Windows Logo (Pearl Button formerly call the start button)
2. click on Control Panel
3. Clik on Network and Internet.
4. click on Netwrok Discovery (where you will Find a down Arrow Button) (V)
6. Click on Turn on Netwrok discovery (radio button).
7. Clik on Apply
---------------------------------------
This is all I have but may be the settings you are looking for. Good luck!

Cannot join - Need help

by Shaunzy In reply to can join to NT domain

Okay. I followed what you said to the previous post. I added computer "C-040" - its name - to the list, then set the "NTLMv2 only" option in Vista on the "C-040" PC. As with XP-Pro setups, I click on the Domain radio button and enter the new domain name, "STRDMN". The message, as with all previous tries, shows: "An Active Directory Domain Controller for the domain STRDMN could not be contacted. Well, duh; we don't have an active directory. Can you possibly shed some light on what may be happeining here? I spent 5+ hours on the phone with HP reps who gave me four different ways to get to the same place; failure, with the message as mentioned above. Gads! The last guy said (and I quote): "The NT server uses WINS server to recognize the other computers in the Domain. The Vista uses DNS server to recognize other computers." - Now, whether or not this is true, I have no idea - but the indications are that Vista Business is looking for an server with Active Directory; no AD = no connection. Anyone have additional info on this one? I'm lost.

Vista on NT Domain

by sbonsall In reply to Cannot join - Need help

All I had to do was add the workstation in first on the NT Server Manager.

Thanks, your fix worked!

by george.gensure In reply to can join to NT domain

I never did find where to change the "NTLMv2 only" in LAN Management authetication. I found it in the firewall advanced settings, but there was no "Send NTLM only" choice. But when I added the machine account on the NT side, it worked!! End of a fitfull afternoon and my first encounter with Vista. Thanks a bunch.
