Hi, I have a couple of virtual machines (xp) and was learning about server 2003. I successfully join the ad domain within the vmware xp virtual machines to the server2003. I created roaming profiles but was not able to deploy software because the roaming profiles could not get access to start the windows installer service. I was adviced it was due to vmware issues and it won't happen. So I tried to join the domain with the bootcamp partition to try this out from bootcamp. However, I was not even able to join the domain from bootcamp. When I go to tcp/ip to join the 192.168.2.7 DNS server (the w2k3 server) I automatically loose internet connection (which doesn't happen when I do this same act in vmware). Then, I try to join the domain by going to change ID under computer name and the first error I get is that the user account is not recognized (in vmware it is). Next it asks for the computer name (leapord) and the domain (I type in casamericarealt which is the ad domain I want to join). I get an error that the domain doesn't exist. What is weird is that I can also run this same bootcamp xp pro machine in vmware, where I can join the domain just fine if I choose. I have read some posts that other mac users have not been able to join a domain in bootcamp either but no one has posted a solution. Can bootcamp join a windows domain????? If anyone knows I would greatly appreciate your help and response. Thank you.
