Join XP to Active Directory


Well, that title is a bit misleading.

I have installed openSuse at work and have joined it to our AD that is running on Win 2003. I have installed vmware server and have installed XP on there. I have two questions:

1. How would I join the XP to the AD? Is it even possible?
2. What kind of network connection should I choose? NAT, Bridged, etc.?

Thanks in advance for your help all.

so, suse box and AD box is outside the vmware server ?

1. of course its possible.

2. you can use brigde and make sure its bridged to your network interface.
after XP loaded, change the ip address to be same network as your host ip.
Try to ping host, suse and AD.

Hi WOrldIsNotFair, and thank you for your response. I'll try this on Monday and let you know what happens.

BTW, the setup that I have at work goes as follows:

1. openSuse on my desktop computer.
2. vmware installed on openSuse.
3. XP installed in vmware.
4. AD is on another machine all together.

ok, next time try to mention your setup like your second post

its mean that you have to set your xp box network range to your suse box.

ex .. suse box network = 192.168.0.0/24

then xp box must be the same network to allow communication.

or u can use dhcp to set the ip.

My bad, I should have said my setup in the first post.

I think openSuse is connecting to our domain at work through DHCP. It doesn't have to be DHCP, I can ask for a static IP, if it makes it easier. Anyways, wanted to ask, how would I configure XP with a DHCP configuration?

thats will be okay, easier using dhcp off course.

the default when we set brigde networking on vmware network interface is conf to dhcp [first time boot]

setting dhcp on xp ? hehe ...go to setting -- network connection -- lan properties setting ...
just keep clicking your mouse on windows env to look for answer
