I recently set up Windows Server 2003 with AD, DNS server and DHCP. My problem is this: I cannot add any of the client computers (all running windows xp) to the domain. This is a small but expanding network (<10 computers at the moment). The error when i try to join the domain is this:
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain <DOMAINNAME>:
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.<DOMAINNAME>
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:
. (the root zone)

I'm using all DHCP for configuration, which seems to work properly

Ok, thats all for the client side. I'll post again for server side issues as soon as I gather all the information
