2000 domains and windows 98
dsweb1 Jan-13-02 10:04 PM
I am trying to connect to a 2000 domain (active directory). I can set the domain in the control panel such as ad.sitename.com. The domain name is 1 digit to long (16 characters), and it cuts off the text in the domain window when I go to logon. It must have a 15 character limit on the netbios name. How can I authenticate and connect to a network share?

NetBIOS Domain Name Field Has a 15 Character Length Limitation (Q226144), http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q226144

To work around this issue, you can specify your NetBIOS domain name from left to right using a unique name (up to 15 characters) in your enterprise that matches a portion of your DNS domain name. For example, if your DNS Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) is support.us.microsoft.com, and your enterprise also has a DNS FQDN of support.uk.microsoft.com, you can create a NetBIOS domain name called support.us.”
