I have an old Windows 2003 Server. An app I use is no longer supported on Win 2003 so I bought some memory for the server and reformatted it with Windows Server 2012 R2 on the weekend.

We have 3 computers that attach to the server. I had no problems using User Profile Wizard 3.14 to attach a Windows 8 computer to the server.

Next up was a Windows 7 machine. Profile Wizard failed with this message:

The domain controller for "XXXXX" cannot be found.

Here are my notes:

+ Error message on Anna's computer (Windows 7): The domain controller for "XXXXX" cannot be found.
+ Detached from domain and attached to workgroup X200S-1
+ Rebooted
+ Tried to attach to domain again using Profile Wizard
+ Same error message
+ Added server IP address to DNS lookup on X200S-1 (at top)
+ ipconfig /all showed server IP address at top
+ Rebooted
+ Tried using domain and administrator in Profile Wizard
+ Also failed with same error message

Any ideas on how I can get this machine to attach to the domain?

Thanks very much,

John

See Finding Domain Controller Fails/ “The RPC server is unavailable” in the "Troubleshooting" chapter of the User Guide

Thanks, I believe I set the DNS forwarders, but will review to make sure.

Best,

John
