I have one server to run a small domain of 32 users, it may sound odd, but company ignores to pay any more money. This server was crashed 1 week before. Unfortunately, no Backups were created. Then I reloaded it so client can get connected to domain. But, I get an error saying that “This computer is not connected to domain” when I try to log in using a user id and password.
But if I log in using a client with my admin password, it shows I am connected with the server.
Can anyone please give me any suggestion about it?
This server is configured with DHCP, DNS and Domain controller and running with Windows XP (service pack 3)
Having problem connecting to 2003 server through client
When fixing "Windows cannot connect to the domain" errors, you must know what the reasons why suddenly you cannot log on to the server. These could be the cause of your problem.
1. A computer that is a member of an Active Directory domain taken offline and then brought online after extended periods of time.
2. You have done some sort of cloning or imaging method to the computer.
3. You have used virtualization software snapshot mechanism on a domain member.
Somehow, you cannot do anything to log on to the computer in using a domain account. But instead, you could use a local user account for you to be able to log on to your system.

I hope this can help.
