has anyone been able to join a domain with build 7000, every time i try it gives an error message saying incorrect parameter......it does create the computer account in active directory....anyone had this problem or know how to solve it??
This is a known issue, I opened the question on TechNET and here is the thread. They are working on a fix, it affects Windows 7 when trying to join a domain that has over 15 digits. See below: Windows 7 issue joining to a domain "The parameter is incorrect." : Windows 7 Networking : Windows 7 Beta : Microsoft TechNet Forums
Since you need to be a member to see the link, I'll copy the answer here:
Yes, this is a known issue within Build 7000 for both Windows 7 client and Windows Server 2008 R2. You will have this issue if the *leading* name portion of your fully qualified domain name is more than 15 characters.
northwindtraders.com <-- will give parameter is incorrect.
contoso.fabrikam.treyresearch.net <-- will work fine.
There will be a hotfix released in the near future. If you are part of any of the private beta programs, you already have access to this through https://connect.microsoft.com
