Joining 2008 server as just a Member server in a 2003SP2 domain

Hello!

I am running a Hyper-V environment and am trying to run my own private domain.  I have created a 2003 AD server with DNS and DHCP.  I have added both 2003 server and 2008 server to the same virtual network on the hyper-v host and am trying to add them both to the domain on the DC.  I am able to add the 2003 VM's to the domain but the 2008 VM's come back with "Domain could not be contacted" errors.  Specifically the DNS could be contacted for the SRV record and it returns the correct domain name but the  common causes say that the (A) name is incorrect or the DC registered in DNS is not on the network or is not running.  I am able to add the 2003 servers to the domain so I know the DC is running.  Any thoughts?

Disable IPv6 on the 2008 Server. Make sure you run a ipconfig /flushdns then ipconfig /registerdns on the 2008 server. Also, make sure the server is only pointing to the 2003 DC for DNS the 2008 server shouldn't be pointed to any other DNS servers except for internal DNS servers.

I had to create a workaround that is operational but I want to get to the bottom of this problem.  I will set this up again in my test environment and see if disabling IPV6 works.

Disabling IPv6 was the trick that worked.  Thank you!
