I have an XP pc in a separate VLAN (VLAN5) from the Domain Controller
server(VLAN1) and I cannot get the PC to browse the domain using and
also the group policy doesn't run.

Has anyone done something like this and how did you get it to work?

What do you mean browsing the domain? If you are talking about the network
you will needs a WINS server.

As far as group policy make sure the user and computer onject are within the
Ou that the policy is being applied against and the computer or user has
read and apply rights.

You'd need to better describe how your VLAN set up is configured. If it's a
typical VLAN, setup with the purpose of segregating traffic, then it might
not be possible. At least not without some configuring on the
routers/switches involved in the VLANs.

What you're asking, however, has little (if anything) to do with active
directory. It's more about networking in general, not AD.

In most major corporations, VLANs are utilized at some level. In cases where
you are unable to communicate across VLANs, I would suggest looking at
whether the VLANs are properly trunked.

Another way to test this would be to utilize nltest to perform a DC lookup
from your network client:

nltest /dsgetdc:<your domain name>
