    I have a domain setup for learning purposes via VMWare. I have 2k3 as DC with 2 XP clients. I have created a local account on one of the XP clients as G-Stress and that is the only additional account I created on that VM. My problem is I created several accounts on the DC, but when I try to login with any account other then G-Stress on the XP client it says the domain is unavailable?

    I'm sure I'm missing something just not sure what. As far as the accounts on the DC their all setup with default options. I did see that they are all set as "Local Path" which kind of confuses me.

    What I'm wanting to do is to be able to log onto the domain with any account on either of the XP clients. Do I have to create every account on the XP clients as well as the DC?

    Did you join the XP client to the domain? Do you see the XP workstation as a machine account in active directory?

    Yes I did join the client XP1 to the domain and I do see it listed in AD. All the user accounts in AD have the same settings the only difference is passwords.
