I had a work group and then added a domain controller. The OS of the domain controller is Windows 2003 Standard. I created the Active Directory and DNS services. I then went to the stations one by one and added then to the domain using the Network ID wizard. The work stations are all WindowsXPP. I checked the domain and all the workstations show in the AD users and computers. However when I go to the computers, I cannot access the domain.
I can use the UNC path to get to the server and share folders on the network. Each user is qasked to change thier password at thier first sign in. However the other Group Policy items I put into effect on the AD do not carry down to the server.
From a workstation, I can go to my computer and then select My Network and the router shows up but not the Domain name. If I go into Entire Network then the Domain shows up and I can get into the share folders again.
If I want to add a domain user to the local uers I cannot. It will not find the domain. I replaced the router since I had seen on the internet that someone else had the same issue with the same router. The router was a Linksys WRT54G. I replaced it with a D-Link DIR-625. The effect was the same. I called Linksys and they said it was not thier issue. I talked to two other Network Service companies and they both said they have never heard of this problem before. Any ideas?
