  • Question

  • hi,

    i am trying to join a xp computer to a domain (windows server 2008) and i get to the step of entering the domainadmin username and password, after i enter the details i get the (the following error occured attempting to join the domain "xxxx": the specified server cannot perform the requested operation.) The thing is that I cant see the server 2008 computer on network places on the xp computer and also i cant see the xp computer on network on the windows server 2008 but the strange thing is that i can connect to the \\server\ through run command and vice versa. ive heard that there is a problem of connecting xp computers to windows server 2008. any help would be appreciated.
