Question about Computers & Internet
There can be many things that can create that error, the one that is the most common is that your network adapter is not assigned to that DNS. Here's what you do to override that. Go to your network connections, and right click on the Local Area Connection icon and choose Properties. From there, you will click on the TCP IP in the list of items and click the properties button. From inside the properties , it can go either two ways, It's set to get an IP address automatically, or it's been assigned all the IP and DNS configurations. If it's set to automatic, then change it to assign these numbers. You will need to locate all these numbers, which I'll walk you through.
First, click on your Start then run button, and enter cmd and hit enter. Or get to the Command prompt anyway you know how. Once you get a black box with a command prompt type in "ipconfig /all" (without the parentheses) it will list for you what the machines IP address is, it's Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and your DNS Servers. Write them down.
Now go to your Windows 2008 server, and do the same thing with the ipconfig, and compare to make sure that the numbers on the DNS Servers are the same.
If not, there is your problem. Go back to the desktop, and continue to fill in the number that you previously wrote, and fill the IP address of that machine, the Subnet Mask will usually fill in automatically, but if not enter it, then the default gateway. In the DNS section, enter the DNS that match's with the Servers DNS number. Click on Ok, and give it another try to connect to the server.
Let me know if this didn't work, and I'll walk you through another solution that it could be.
Good Luck, And let me know.

Thats cause the 2008 server and 2003 cannot handshake,,, microsoft changed the protocol in windows vista / win 7 / 20008,,,,,
read this article it will explain what i am saying
basically 2008 doesnt support,, 2003, or XP ,, only vista and higher,, I'm sure you have noticed that win 7 dont have workgroups and domains in its network infastructure any more,, only home groups..
