Hi i have active directory setup on the server with a domain name.

When i log in as an administrator on the workstations i cant seem to access the domain on the network, although i can ping to the network address of the server, but when trying to join it keeps saying domain cannot be found, or contacted

Why is it i can ping but cant access the domain? Also i can see the server on the network and access it. What must i do to enable the workstations to access this domain?

Thankyou

It sounds like the dns server for the domain is not set up properly....what version of Windows Server do you have?
