Windows xp clients unable to join domain using Bind9 DNS Server

Greetings;

I am unable to get my Windows XP clients join my domain.

Here's what I got the first time I tried to join a Windows XP machine to my domain.

DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain mydomain.com:

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.mydomain.com

The following domain controllers were identified by the query:

dc.mydomain.com

Common causes of this error include:

- Host (A) records that map the name of the domain controller to its IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.

- Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.


Which is not the case. A nslookup on the Xp box is resolving the dns and the domain name, the query for A record of the domain name is resolved.

Here are my versions;
HP UX 11iv3
Bind 9
HP-UX Directory Server Version 8.1
Windows xp sp2

What do I need to change in order my win xp join the domain. If you require any additional information, please let me know.

Thanks

Steve,

Have you ever considered to install CIFS on this server and make a domain with this CIFS server as the PDC?
This isn't LDAP based but is known to work.
