My tech installed and configured new Windows 2008 server with a domain name like "one.company.net". Now I cannot bring the Windows XP pro clients into the domain because the join domain wizard can't find a domain of that name. Is that an illegal name? Any ideas why this would be happening?

Here is the error we are getting when we run the join domain wizard on the XP worstation:
An error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain TAX.MCCRACKEN.NET.

The error was: "No records found for given DNS query."
(error code 0x0000251D DNS_INFO_NO_RECORDS)

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.TAX.MCCRACKEN.NET

Is DNS running on the 2008 server? If so, is the XP client configured to use that server for DNS?

Yes, although at one point, the DNS server was giving errors saying it coul dnot find the DNS server at it's own address - not sure how it got the address, but I changed it to 127.0.0.1 and it seems to be happy with that. We have postponed the implementation now until we can resolve some issues inclduing this one, so I have alittle more time but am still looking for helpful suggestions.

Yesterday I had someone login remotely and check it out. Turned out to be a DNS problem - I'm not sure of the details. At any rate, it now allows workstations to join the domain.
Thanks for trying to help.
