Hi !

I have just runned up a new installed HP computer with Windows 7 Professionel.

When i add the computer to the domain it is prompting me for username and password.

The server is a Windows 2003.

After this i get a DNS problem.

I have looked in the C:\Windows\debug log (dcdiag) where i get following error :

"DNS name does not exist."
Errorcode 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR

What should i start to do ?

I have 10 other machines working fine on this network (they are connected to the domain)
