Can't join domain using Cisco AnyConnect VPN
Posted on 2010-08-19
I got a cisco ASA5505 that uses anyconnect to create a vpn. I'm trying to get a remote laptop to join the domain. I have configured the vpn to start before login, so the computer boots up, the user hits ctrl+alt+del and the cisco vpn box comes up and asks them for the vpn credentials. They enter the credentials then it takes them to the normal login screen, where they are logging on to the local machine at the moment. I try to join the join the laptop to the domain by clccking on computer name on the laptop and clicking on change then entering the domain name. Then I get this error:
A domain controller for the domain *name* could not be contacted. Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly. If the domain name is correct click details for troubleshooting information. So I click details and get this:
The domain name *name* might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.
If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain nrsc:
The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.*name*
Common causes of this error include the following:
- The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.
- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

I think the problem may be with the cisco router. Because when I connect to the vpn I get a valid ip address for the network I am trying to connect to, but I can't ping the router itself or any computers by name, I can ping them by ip address though (except the router I can't ping that at all). Any suggestions?
