    I have just setup a main server as file server and getting
    ready to setup 2nd to connect to first I have the dns on
    1st done with ad.

    I have not yet connected this 2nd server to the first
    main file server. When I use dcpromo to do it I get an
    error that says it can not find it or does not exsits.

    I enter the name as administrator then the pw and the
    domain name"main". What am I missing?

    Yes I can ping the 1st pc from the second pc.
    These are both windows 2000 standard servers.

  3. So what you are trying to do is join a machine?

    Anyway, what i would take a look at is the DNS settings. On the machine you
    are having problems with, what DNS-server is it setup to use? The one that
    is your DNS-server, or your ISP's DNS-server. It should use your DNS-server.

    i find interesting, for example Windows Server 2003.

    I did get it to connect to it but when I enter in the step
    of the full dns in this case "" It states it may
    not be enterd right or registered yet with the domain
    naming service. Why is this? This is an in house domain
    not a hosting one. Or is this what it is suppose to be an
    out side one?
