Which one is right for you? - Microsoft Windows
If I remember correctly is this:
"The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted"

The user has brought her laptop back to the vendor for servicing as her laptop is newly bought and have some issue. So that means to say pro can join too? I shall try again then..

Pro can definitely join Sir. This appears to be a user verification (authentication) problem -- who is in charge of the domain?
