Cannot join Domain / NSLookup failed
Posted on 2009-05-14
The server we have is Windows 2000. It is our domain, dns, ftp, and web server. I have 5 computers on the domain and everyone of them is working just fine but one. It is programmed with a static IP and the DNS is the DNS Server. I am trying to add it to the domain and it keeps saying that the network is not available. I cannot go to the internet at all. I CAN ping every computer both by IP and by Computer Name. I cannot ping outside the network. I tried nslookup and it also failed saying that it "Can't find server name for address XXX.XXX.XXX.X" DNS request timed out. Now I can ping the IP of the Server and I can ping the server name. So there is no issues there. But nslookup will not work. I cannot join the domain and I cant get on the internet. So I am not sure what is going on. I have searched every forum including this one for over 8 hours and I am now lost. I have tried every idea out there. DCDIAG.exe on the server is saying that everything passed. Any idea's?
