Can't Connect to Domain

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to these forums but I'm going to try to give as much info as possible so anyone who wants to help will hopefully be able to :)

I have dynamic IP cable connection , router is a SME (modified version of RedHat Enterprise) Server. Currently it is my domain controller. I have been able to join Windows XP, Windows 98, Windows 2000 all to the network domain.

However when I attempt to connect to my domain on my laptop (Windows XP) I get the following error.

"The following error occured attemped to join the domain "condo.local"

Multiple connections to a server or shared resources by same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resources and try again"

This error comes up after I enter the username/PW to join domain.

The username I'm logged into is unique. The username I use to join domain is root of network, but I've used that and other usernames, all give same error.

This laptop connects to network via a wireless router that is configured to be strickly an access point. Then the wifi router goes into the main switch of the network.

Any ideas as to why I would get this error and what it would take to fix it? No other computers on network are attempting to be domain controller, or anything such as that.

A temporary solution so I can share files from laptop is to join the workgroup using same name as domain but I'd like to get it on domain as well.

Any help greatly appreciated :)

Trey.

I'd be curious to know if there are any helpful event log entries on both the laptop and your DC(s).

fastest and easiest ways to remove any open connections are to reboot both machines.. then before you do anything.. join your laptop to the domain..
