JSI Tip 6879. When you try to use Netdom.exe to join a Windows XP Professional computer to your domain, it fails with 'The specified network password is not correct'?

The subject behavior is due to the fact that Windows XP Professional is configured to only allow guest or anonymous access when you attempt to connect from the network.

You can run Netdom.exe locally on the Windows XP Professional computer, or you can implement tip 6878 prior to running Netdom.exe.

NOTE: Unless you implement tip 6878, only domain administrators can connect to the Windows XP Professional computer over the network with administrative permissions.
