XP Client to join an win2000 domain

By Borg7of9 ·
How do I get an XP workstation to join a Win2000 server on active directory. I have set up the user account on the server.


On XP station (home version)

Then I have added both internal DNS and external DNS server and gateway info in the TCP properties, I have then added the domain name in the system workgroup properties cause I can not find anywhere to specify log on to a domain!! HELP

you cannot make an XP home join a domain it has to be a XP pro that is the biggest diff on an xp home and xp pro We had this problem on the network before and we had to upgrade the OS to an XP pro before it will join the domain.

Log in to XP Home using a local computer account that doesn't have a password.
Open the My Computer object, click the Tools menu, and then click Map Network Drive.
Select a folder on your network by clicking on the Browse button.
After selecting the folder, click on the different user name link on the page.
In the Connect As dialog box, for user name enter domainxxx\user (where domainxxx is the domain you want to connect to). Enter your domain user password and then click OK.
Check the Reconnect at login box and press Finish.
When you boot up in the morning, go to My Computer and double click on the networked drive. This causes XP to send the credentials to the Domain and opens the drive.


This should give you access to shared resources on the network.
