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. Thanks. Loran

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You said you try to enter in what she logs in with… Is she an administrator that has permission to connect that system to the domain? If not, that won’t work. If you are an administrator and can join systems to the domain, try using your information. For example if your domain is called zipper and your username and lsmith, try zipperlsmith and your password.
