I am trying to add a user to an existing domain. Currently her machine is set up as a workstation though she can access network things like the shared drives and internet. We have a program that we would like her to use but it requires her logging into the domain. I have gone to Control Panel, System, Computer Name etc... to join a domain. I enter abc.on.ca under Domain (Member of) instead of Workstation. I get an ERROR that says A domain controller for the domain abc.on.ca could not be contacted. So now I enter abc (without the .on.ca under Domain). It now asks to enter a name and password of an account with permission to join a domain. I try and enter what she logs in using so donnnaa and her password. I get an ERROR that says the following error occurred attempting to join the domain abc. - multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Now I ran into this with another machine where I had mapped to a drive on the server with the same name as the computer so I disconnected the mapped drive before I did all of this. Can anyone help me out? The operating system I am using is Windows XP. I have also looked on our server at a user who works properly and checked the user that doesn't work to make sure they are members of the same groups etc. They are.
Any help would be appreciated.
