I thought this would be simple.... I'm trying to connect a Win XP client to Windows server 2003. I have set up a domain, DNS server (not connected to the internet) and I have a DHCP server installed. The IP address is 169.254.105.188 (which might be part of the problem) on the server. All I want to do is add the win XP client to the domain. I've tried to ping the Server but to no avail and I've tried to add the Win XP computer to the domain but its coming up with an error message. I'm not really sure where to start. I am a complete novice on server 2003 and this is the first time I've used it so forgive me if what I've just typed is a little vague. Any ideas or pointers where I should start?
