I am trying to add a workstation to a specified domain.  When I attempt to add the unique computer name to the domain I get the following error:

The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.  

I know that domain exists and windows suggests that it might be related to a DNS lookup problem.  I have tried inputing the DNS primary and secondary addresses and still no luck. Boggle.
