XP login to NT4 domain controller error

Tester

Hi there,
An XP Pro laptop gives following error while logging to an NT4 domain:
"A domain controller for the domain ... cannot be contacted" I removed
machine from NT4 domain unto a workgroup but I have same error trying to
rejoind the NT4 domain. Problem could be because it was installed initially
in another NT4 domain with full trusts with this domain. In the
c:\windows\debug\dcdiag.txt file I have the following:
The domain name mydomain might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the
case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.
If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the
following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location
(SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain
mydomain:
The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.mydomain
Common causes of this error include the following:
- The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.
- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child
zone:
mydomain
.. (the root zone)

What should I do?
Thanks a lot, Calin

sounds like name resolution issue. Do you gave WINS server on the LAN?

Hi Robert,
Yes NT4 DC is Wins and DHCP as well, all other W2K and NT4 machines work OK. This XP machine was somehow installed initially on a different NT4 domain with full trusts with the present domain machine is on now. I can add and remove machine to the domain was originally installed on but not on this present domain. Thanks a lot, Calin

make sure you have correct winds settings on that computer. also check the wins records to see if you have the computer list.

Hi Bob,
Everything correct, it can even reach the domain controller by ping or name but not for authenticating to join the domain.
Problem is with the secure communication channel between NT4 DC and XP client and maybe with security ID of the machine since it was ghosted on another domain, moved to workgroup, next attempted to be moved to the new domain. Is there any (hidden) files re. the above I can delete so it is accepted unto the new domain? Thanks a lot, Calin
