Not sure if the server you added is a domain controller but this might help....

To verify domain membership for a new domain controller
Open a Command Prompt.

Type the following command and then press ENTER:

netdiag /test:member

It the test was successful you should see the following message: Domain membership test Passed. If you use the /v option, it will list the name of the domain controller, its role, the name of the domain, and a number of other statistics about the new domain controller.

My now-demoted former DC had lost its trust relationship because of bad DNS settings. Your answer pointed me in the right direction. Thanks!
