I found the problem, there were some OFF THE WALL Ip addresses in the DNS settings.
I did the following and everything is A Ok now.  Thanks for the reply though.


GO to Network Connections
double click on NIC
select properties
select tcp/ip -> properties

Type the DC's IP address in the "Preferred DNS Server" box
Press "Advanced"
go to the DNS tab
Under dns suffix for this connection type fqdn for example  "mydomain.local"
apply changes

Then try joining the domain.. this should work
