Unable to see Domain controller in a remote site RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a client PC (Windows xp sp3) on a site that can see our network. But the PC cant find the Domain controller at login, we can remote control the client PC, the PC can ping the domain controller.

    Can we use the LMHOSTS file to specify the Domain COntroller?

  • You should be using DNS...does the client point to the DC for its primary DNS server? If not, that's your problem....point it to the DC, and the problem will go away (assuming you have DNS installed and functioning correctly on the DC of course).
