    Hi Guys,

    I would like to know if a WinXPHome machine can be introduced into an existing File Server domain using WinServer2003Standard? The other three machines run Win2000Pro in the domain.

    If so, how can I intergrate it. Is there a wizard for XPHome?

    Thanks in advance,

    Heeter

    Under normal circumstances, XP Home cannot join a domain. You would need to upgrade to XP Pro for that. However, there is a little tweak that might help:

    Download X-Setup: http://www.x-setup.net/downloads/home.asp
    Let me know if it works for you. :)

    I love that program.


    Prefetch control, add nasty notes, add legal notices. Oh yeah.

    Wouldn't be difficult to find out. Just start Regmon before you make the changes in X-Setup, and it'll show you which registry entries were added/removed/modified. :)

    If you activate "Record Mode" in X-Setup it will write the changes directly to a reg file (provided the changes are made in the registry).
