Windows 7 Professional / Samba domain v 3.5.8 / Unable to join domain Tags: Configuration Windows 7 Domain Samba Last response: October 12, 2012 9:59 AM in Windows 7 Share Jesse_001 June 22, 2011 10:24:14 AM Hello, I have done this all before. In addition to HKLM\System\CCS\Services\LanmanWorkstation\Parameters DWORD DomainCompatibilityMode = 1 DWORD DNSNameResolutionRequired = 0 I am using Samba 3.5.8 and I am trying to join a Windows 7 64Bit laptop to my domain. HP Pavillion dv6 Intel core i5 CPU M 520 @ 2.40GHz 2.40Ghz 4.00 GB RAM However when I try join the domain i get the following message: "The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "MYDOMAIN" The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. If I do a nslookup it resolves the domain controller, as well if i watch the traffic I can only see UDP traffic on that IP, however i can still browse the web from it? Any suggestions please? It's day two and dont know where to turn anymore.
