Sounds like you don't have enough CALs. Break out the check book and call Microsoft.

No; CALs aren't monitored like that. (At least they never used to be.)

Are you supplying a domain admin account when trying to join the client to the domain?

When you go into Control Panel to change the computer from a Workgroup member to a Domain one you are asked to specify a user on the Domain who has authority to make the change (actually, I'm not sure that is 100% true if you pre-create the computer accounts in AD).

You are going into Control Panel to join the computer to the Domain, aren't you?

look at the dns entry in the workstations tcp/ip configuration.

Is it the ip address of the server or is it pointed to the gateway?

Putting in my $.02 here. If you need explanations for the answers the guys have provided above, you may want to invest in some training on AD. Seems like you need additional assistance from someone who's familiar with it.
