I have several new PCs that are unable to join our domain. I get the error "The domain controller for the domain could not be contacted". In the details..."DNS was sucessfully queried for the SRV resource record used to locate the the domain controller..." And it lists both of our DCs in the domain, yet I still can't join. I'm able to ping the FQDN of the servers but not the NetBIOS name (TCP NetBIOS service is running), as well as able to get to shared folders on the servers using the FQDN. I've checked DNS for all the A records which seem to be in place, however I still am unable to join the domain. The servers are both Windows 2008 x64 running AD and DNS.
Thanks in advance,
