I have a Windows NT 4.0 SP5 server, not a domain
controller, that I'm trying to join our Win2K domain. I
right click on Network Neighborhood, choose the
Identification Tab, click change and type in the domain
name without the .com at the end. I get "Unable to
connect to the domain controller for this domain. Have
your administrator check your computer account on the
domain." I have already created a computer account on the
domain. If I enter the domain name with the .com at the
end I get "The domain controller for this domain cannot be
located." I can ping the domain controller by IP and by
name. TCP/IP, DNS, & WINS settings are correct. The only
thing not configured is default gateway, but all the
servers are on the same subnet. Any suggestions?

Immediately after the failed logon attempt open a dos
prompt and run nbtstat -c and verify the the following
netbios names are in the cache without conflict:
domain names 1b, 1c and computer names 00, 20,
and 03 all pointing towards the PDC of the domain
and without conflict.

Here's what I get

Node IP Address [10.226.72.35] Scope ID: []
Name
DC1 <20> Unique 10.226.72.34
Domain <1B> Unique 10.226.72.34
DC1 <00> Unique 10.226.72.34
DC2 <20> Unique 10.226.72.38

Where DC1 & DC2 are Win2K Servers and domain controllers

I would edit the lmhosts file to include the following
and then attempt to join the domain:

10.226.72.34 DC1 #PRE #DOM:D omainName
10.226.72.34 "Domainname \0x1B" #PRE

Let us know if this works.
