    Just built a new Windows Server 2003. Set up domain controller. My XP Pro system cannot join the domain. The process goes far enough to ask for a username and password. I give it one. After a couple of mintes, the process fails with the message:

    The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "atr"

    The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.

    In the file netsetup.log, I find, in part:

    11/02 20:28:08 NetpCheckDomainNameIsValid [ Exists ] for 'atr' returned 0x0
    11/02 20:28:08 NetpValidateName: name 'atr' is valid for type 3
    11/02 20:28:08 NetpDsGetDcName: trying to find DC in domain 'atr', flags: 0x1020
    11/02 20:28:08 NetpDsGetDcName: found DC '\\ATRPDC' in the specified domain
    11/02 20:29:09 NetpJoinDomain: status of connecting to dc '\\ATRPDC': 0x0
    11/02 20:29:09 NetpGetLsaPrimaryDomain: status: 0x0
    11/02 20:29:09 NetpGetDnsHostName: Read NV Hostname: Office01
    11/02 20:29:09 NetpGetDnsHostName: PrimaryDnsSuffix defaulted to DNS domain name: atr.local
    11/02 20:29:09 NetpLsaOpenSecret: status: 0xc0000034
    11/02 20:29:09 NetpGetLsaPrimaryDomain: status: 0x0
    11/02 20:29:09 NetpLsaOpenSecret: status: 0xc0000034
    11/02 20:29:09 NetpJoinDomain: status of setting machine password: 0x0
    11/02 20:29:30 NetpLdapBind: ldap_bind failed on \\ATRPDC: 81: Server Down
    11/02 20:29:30 ldap_unbind status: 0x0

    Anyone have an idea what I have done wrong?

    Found the basic problem using netdiag. RPC is disabled in the Windows Firewall and there does not seem to be a simple way to enable enough of it to allow computers to join the Domain! Go figure. Turned of the firewall and all is well.

    Seems stupid to me. I would expect the Active Domain Wizard to open up whatever is necessary in the firewall, just as it turns on and configures DNS.
