Windows 7 can't join domain with The parameter is incorrect

Postby guest » Tue Feb 03, 2009 12:53 pm

Our domain name is 18 digits long.

I cannot ping our short "NetBios" name or join with it. I can add the same laptop to the domain with Vista x64. However with Windows 7 I see the same problem. Hope someone can help...

Thanks,

Hi,

Yes, this is a known issue within Build 7000 for both Windows 7 client and Windows Server 2008 R2. You will have this issue if the *leading* name portion of your fully qualified domain name is more than 15 characters.

Examples:

northwindtraders.com <-- will give parameter is incorrect.
contoso.fabrikam.treyresearch.net <-- will work fine.

There will be a hotfix released in the near future. If you are part of any of the private beta programs, you already have access to this through https://connect.microsoft.com.

Hi Everyone,

The hotfix is now available to download for all customers having this issue. The KB article will be following soon, but we thought you want this ASAP:

Download QFE KB961402 " - http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBH ... kbln=en-us

There are three versions of the file, for x86, X64, and IA64.
It is language neutral
It is for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 (OS agnostic)
When you follow this link, it will email you a location to a download of the file(s). This hotfix should only be applied if you are experiencing the following:

SYMPTOMS

Under the following circumstances, you may receive an error “The attempt to join this computer to the contoso.com domain failed. The parameter is incorrect”:

· You attempt to join a Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 computer to an existing domain using the System Properties UI or with NETDOM JOIN.
· You attempt to DCPROMO a Windows Server 2008 R2 computer to an existing domain.

The NETSETUP log on the computer being joined (located in %systemroot\debug) will also show:

12/23/2008 16:06:19:419 NetpDoDomainJoin: status: 0x57


Note: 0x57 translates to ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER.

The domain does not need to be named NORTHWINDTRADERS.COM for this issue to occur.
