HI MY NAME IS TONY
 I JUST recently installed a domain and i'm having problems it's a windows 2000 advanced server with 25 calls now installed and everything but when i try to join the domain with the xp o/s i cannot join it some reason i can ping the pc acces is but run \\the ip but cannot join them it tells me Note: This information is intended for a network administrator.  If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\WINDOWS\debug\dcdiag.txt.

The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain vanettizl.com:

The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.vanettizl.com

Common causes of this error include the following:

- The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.

- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

vanettizl.com
com
. (the root zone)

    This is probably an incorrectly configured DNS. To start with, verify your settings against this:

    *** TCP/IP-Settings ***
    * On your DC/DNS, make sure the only DNS listed in the TCP/IP properties is itself.
    * On your domain members, enter only your DC as primary DNS.
    * Do NOT enter your ISP's DNS server in the TCP/IP settings on any domain member. All DNS resolution needs to be done by your internal DNS server *only*.

    *** DNS Server Settings ***
    * Delete the root zone (if present) in your DNS server's forward lookup zones (the single dot, "."), to enable external lookups.
    * You might want to create a reverse lookup zone for your network.
    * Right-click your forward and reverse lookup zones, go to Properties, and make sure that Dynamic Updates are enabled.
    * In the properties page of your DNS server, configure forwarders to point to your ISP's DNS. The forwarders section is the *only* entry in your network where your ISP's DNS should be listed.
    * It's recommended (but not necessary) to set your zones to Active Directory integrated (this can be done in the properties of the zones as well).

    Once you've checked this, open a command prompt and enter "ipconfig /registerdns", then stop and re-start the netlogon service. Check if the SRV records have been created (see link below).
    For further troubleshooting, you can use dcdiag.exe and netdiag.exe to check your system for errors in the domain setup.
