Specs: Windows NT4.0, athlon64
I have pdc running a domain, and never had a bdc to back it up. I am building a bdc now to ensure we have a backup incase the pdc fails. Upon installation of nt, I am at the part where it asks to connect to the domain. I cant get it to connect. It says unable to find domain. AM I supposed to do this with a crossover cable or a parallel. Also when I installed the network card, my card wasnt on the list within NT, but I had the drivers for it, It then recognized it and let me proceed. but with the same problem, actually all these problems are concurrent. Any ideas?

You don't connect the BDC directly to the PDC. You connect it to the network and make sure it obtains an IP address. Then you can join it to the Domain.

I asked about a direct connection as a possible solution, but havent done that. ok , so that would rule out a direct connection with a crossover cable.

I did however have it connected to the network thru a hub. still cant find the domain. i have the admin account which i was using to add it to the domain, but it still wont find the domain. also, I still havent gotten beyond this part of the actual install, is there a place to add an ip address in this part of the install? I setup tcp protocol and the other default stuff, but to no avail.

thanks for the response...

Are you obtaining an IP address?
