Joining Server 2008 Domain with Server Core VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working through the MCTS guide #70-642 and I'm stuck trying to join my server core08 machine to my domain (running server2k8 both enterprise 64-bit.

    Logon failure: Unknown user name or bad password <=== My problem

    I'm using my domain server admin account and the correct password.

    I'm using VirtualBox. I'm pretty sure I have all the networking settings correct, I can Ping my domain from the core install as well as my domain server. 

    I've tried almost every netdom command variation that I could find. I just can't get past this Logon failure.

    bentech.local is the domain
    MSN-SC-001 is the server core machine

    What I've tried:
    netdom join \\msn-sc-001 /domain:bentech.local /UserD:bentech.local\administrator /PasswordD:MyDomainAdminPass

    netdom join msn-sc-001 /domain:bentech.local /UserD:bentech.local\administrator /PasswordD:MyDomainAdminPass

    netdom join msn-sc-001 /domain:bentech.local

    and a few others.

    Sorry for the lengthy first post, thanks in advance for any help.

  • Yay, I figured it out.  I just had to disable the NAT adapter on the core machine.  Thanks for the help everyone!

  • You might try dropping the .local in both domain name and username.

  • Hi,

    Try the following command:

    netdom join msn-sc-001 /domain:bentech.local /UserD:administrator /PasswordD:MyDomainAdminPass

  • Hi,

    Please provide the Windows IP Configuration on the Server Core machine.

    By the way, I tried the command in my last reply on both my server core and full installation of computers and it worked properly.
