Last Modified: 2012-06-21

i installed a server 2003 domain controller, my domain name is mylab.local / On XP machine i can ping domain controller by ip address and server name (winserver1) but can't ping by domain name (mylab.local) and FQDN, therefor i can't join domain.

i have tried simple stuff like: ipconfig /flushdns and /registerdns; i have restart server; restart dns services; i made sure firewall is disables.

Thanks in advance.
