Can someone direct me in understanding what could be causing this issue during a workstation migration.

Error 6.

It is very unusual to get an invalid handle error here. Can you give us some more information? What sort of domain are you joining? What OS does the workstation have? How are you specifying the domain name and domain admin account - do you use a DNS domain name or a "flat" (NetBIOS) name? Are you renaming the workstation?

Domain type: windows 2003
OS: XP Pro
We are specifying the domain and admin account.
I believe we are using "".
We are not renaming the workstation.
