Domain Controller cannot be contacted when adding workstation to network

    General discussion

  • Hi

    I am running two Windows 2003 domain controllers.  Recently I was experiencing some issues within the domain with a tombstoned server however replication is now working successfully.

    however when i try to add workstations (windows XP) to the domain I am getting an error "the domain controller cannot be contacted

    I can ping the domain controllers from the workstation by name and by ip successfully


    why cant I add the workstation to the domain, what can I do to resolve this issue.
