The specified domian either does not exist or could not be contacted, when trying to add a domain account to local admins group
I am trying to set up a cluster in a box for a "proof of concept" but I cannot add domain accounts to local groups.
I am using the VMware server 2.0 beta on windows 2003.
I have joined the VM guest to the domain and I am logging in as a domain user. When I open the computer managment consol and try to add the svc_cluster account to the local admins group, I cannot see the domain in the locations. Then I try to open the AD users and computers snap in and I get: 'naming information cannot be located becasue: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.'
I have put a host file on each VM that points domain.com to the IP of the DC.
I have appended domain.com on all the NICs
I can ping the DC and domain.com
All my physical servers function just fine. I have checked DNS and the DNS entries for the VM guests are correct.
