Logon Error Message Reports, 'No Domain Controller Found or Domain Does Not Exist'

This article was previously published under Q290129
When you attempt to log on to a Microsoft Windows 2000-based domain from a non-Windows 2000-based client computer, you may receive the following error message:

No Domain controller found or domain does not exist.
This behavior can occur when use of NetBIOS over TCP/IP is not enabled on the client computer.
To resolve this behavior, on the client computer, click Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on the WINS tab in the TCP/IP Properties dialog box.
