    The domain controller can only be found for the initial login after changing from workgroup to domain, any further login attemps bring up the logon message 'a domain controller for your domain could not be contacted'. Once I remove the computer from the domain on the server I can add it again by changing from workgroup to domain on the new machine, but again am limited to only one login. Any idea on what could be causing this?

    Greetings

    Can you ping the server? Can you net view it? What network access do you have to it?

    Are you connecting to it over a router? Is it in another subnet?

    Are you trying to connect using Win9x or an NT machine?

    What type of protocols are you running? What types are the server running?

    Cheers
