Windows cannot connect to domain because the server is not operational

Trying to connect active directory users and computers to the domain but it will not connect and gives the above error message.

Any help appreciated.

Make sure your workstation is pointing to the same DNS server as the Domain controller and that the DNS zone for your AD is configured correctly.

You cannot point a DC to an external DNS server where you dont have write privs as it will not function correctly and you wont be able to resolve it.
