Is your Domain Controller also a DHCP server? And DNS?

Is it a Small Business Server?

Run IPCONFIG /ALL and post tge results from your Domain Controller and the Vista machine.

I suspect it isnt getting the correct IP address information.
Also if your DC/DNS is Windows 2003 disable IPv6 on the Vista machine as per: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852

use the 0xffffffff option.

Try using the full dns name for the domain, like eta.whatever.com
