VMWare Workstation cannot join domain.

Hi all,

Having problems on Workstation 5.5.3 and 5.5.4

VMWare machine is a clean install of Windows2003 server std.

I am trying to join the domain and it comes up with an error.. Unable to join the domain due to an RPC error..

If I copy the machine to VMWare Server 1.02 I can join the domain with no problems.

I had read that there were problems with Enabling shared folders on the VMWare computers, however I have disabled this and it still comes up with the error on Windows 2003 server machines. Windows XP machines can join the domain on my VMWare Workstation fine.

Any ideas?

NP

I ran into a similar problem, except that I got the RPC error on vmware server 1.0.3 as well. It turns out that it works fine \*until* you install R2. R2 breaks vmware domain-related networking. I figured this out the third time, of course.. 😕
