A laptop with Windows XP SP2, when adding this computer into domain,a error message appeared that show a domain contrller for the domain ap could not be contacted.... the exact information is below:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
'A domain controller for the domain ap could not be contacted.

Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly.

If the name is correct, click Details for broubleshouting information.'
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
See the attachment for more information.



In this computer, I can ping the DNS server and Domain server successfully in the domain. Also, it can get a correct IP address through DHCP server. Accessing internet and intranet is also normal.

Please provide a solution for this issue. Thanks.
