The Case that an Administrator Cannot Log On to the Domain from a Client Computer

The Case that an Administrator Cannot Log On to the Domain from a Client Computer


Real-World Scenario:


You are the network administrator for your company's Active Directory domain. The domain includes Windows Server 2003 domain controllers and Windows XP Professional client computers. A new administrator named Paul is hired to assist you in deploying Windows XP Professional to 100 new computers. Paul installs the operating system on a new computer named Client1. However, when Paul tries to log on to the domain from Client1, he is unsuccessful. The logon dialog box does not allow him to view and select the domain name. You need to ensure that Paul can log on to the domain from Client1. What should you do?

In this scenario it is obvious that the client is not joined to the domain. So before Paul can log in to the domain, he should join the client to the domain (configure the client as a member of the domain). For more information about how to join a computer to domain, refer to the following link:
