Cannot join a PC to a domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I am trying to add a Windows XP sp3 machine to a Windows Domain.
    When I type in the domain name and the login/password it waits a few seconds then we get "The Following error occured when trying to join the domain DOMAINNAME

    The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable"

    I can succesfully map to server drives and ping all the servers.

    Any ideas

  • Have you looked at the event log on your domain controller? You might get a better idea of why it's not being allowed to join.
