I have recently acquired a new computer running Windows 7 Professional that I would like to add to the network. Unfortunately, I have been unsuccessful in attempting it to join the local domain running Windows Server 2008R2. I’ve had no problems in doing this using the older Windows 2000 computers. When changing from workgroup to domain, the Windows 7 computer is unable to locate the domain: a) computer account b) userid Resulting in a “network path not found” error. I am able to ping the server from the Windows 7 computer. What is different in Windows 7 that is preventing it from presenting itself to a domain? What setting(s) needs to be ‘tweaked’ to allow successful domain registration and login? I’m using all default TCP/IP settings, similar to the Windows 2000 computer. I have disabled IPv6 in the Windows 7 computer, but the problem continues I am stumped!
