windows 7 Pro 64 bit trying to join a 2008 r2 server domain

    Question

  • Installed a new server and new workstations at a clients, Server is running a 2008 R2 64bit Os and all but 2 workstations are for the time being on windows XP Pro 32 bit, there are 2 other Pc's running 1. 32 bit of vista ult and 1 system running windows 7 pro 64 bit. all systems except the 64 bit are able to join the domain and log in. the windows 7 pro system can join the domain under the local user but after reboot when they try and log in , it will not allow them saying the login attempt is invalid and or the format using is invalided. The way they are logging is clicking switch user which the domain name comes up " Test" <-- domain name " not actual" so for logging in used test/user and then their password that was assigned to them.

     i can see the computer in the listings but not able to login?

    is there a role or a feature or a security setting to allow a 64 bit os to join the domain?

  •   It has nothing to do with the client being 64-bit.  The format would be test\user, not test/user .

       What is the full name of the domain? If it is test.local, you could log in using user@test.local .

    I agree. Additionally, after you join in domain, after you power on and try to logon the default log on domain is the domain you joined. Do not need to enter [domain name]\][user name], just enter [user name] directly. If you would like to switch from a local account to a domain account, click "Switch User", enter [domain name]\[user name]. Also you will see "Log on to domain [domain name]". Under it there will be "How to log on to another domain".
