Unable to Connect to Domain Controller

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am setting up a virtual environment to host Project Server 2010 beta.  Using VirtualBox I created a domain controller, SQL server and application / web server.  All 3 machines are running windows server 2008 r2.   When I try to connect the SQL or application / web servers to the domain controller I get the following error  "An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a domain controller in the domain being joined has failed."  I am able to ping both clients to the domain contolller and vica versa using both ip addresses and names.  Can you shed some light on this.
