Active Directory connection problems from XP Professional

Active Directory connection problems from XP Professional

Post by Stephen Hucke » Wed, 05 Dec 2001 21:58:45



After Joining my XP Professional PC to my Windows 2000 Domain. I can't
use the XP machine to utilize any of the Active Directory functions of
the server.

I can connect to a share and run programs with zero problems. But when
I use one of the Active Directory tools from the Windows XP Admin Pack
Beta 3 or even the SEARCH ACTIVE DIRECTORY tool in My Network Places
times out or gives me an error message such as

         Naming information cannot be located because:
The specified domain deither does not exists or could not be located.
Contact your system administrator to verify that your domain is
properly configured and is currently online.

Also from the event log of the Win XP computer.

Windows cannot obtain the domain controller name for your computer
network. (The specified domain either does not exist or could not be
contacted. ). Group Policy processing aborted.

Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed to contact
the active directory (0x8007054b).  The specified domain either does

  Enrollment will not be performed.

A winipcfg /all reveals the following. Implicit in the output is the
fact that the DHCP on Seoul.korea.kr at 192.168.0.1 (the domain

Active Directory connection problems from XP Professional

Stephen,

On the W2K server, check the DNS. Do you have the correct forward and
reverse zones for the korea.kr domain? From the W2K server can you
successfully ping the XP box FQDN? Is the XP machine FQDN registered there?
If not, you should enable the automatic DNS registration.

Active Directory connection problems from XP Professional

Also make sure the workstation points to your W2K DNS server. Also make sure
the Domain Server points to it, as well. Even if they are the same machine,
the server must point to itself as the first DNS server. It won't do it
automaticly. Your IP settings on the server must list itself first,
preferably the only DNS pointer. See Microsoft support pages Q291382,
Q237675 & Q300202.

Active Directory connection problems from XP Professional

Thank you. The problem was with the workstation not pointing to the
DNS server ... simple in hindsight ...
