Trying to join a server 2008 to a SBS 2008

Hey there, I have a server 2008 box with 2 hyper V sessions, one is SBS 2008 which is setup, and the other is a server 2008

I have set the primary DNS on the hyperv 2008 to the SBS 2008 IP.

I am trying to join the server 2008 hyper V to the SBS 2008 domain as a member server.  The hyperV 2008 fails out trying to join the sbs2008.

Here is the part of the error that sticks out

THe DNS servers used by this computer for name resolution are not responding.  This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP address

192.168.1.7 (which is the SBS 2008 IP and is pingable)

verify that :

  1. DNS server service is running on the SBS2008 machine.
  2. when entering the domain leave ".local" out

Can you do a "nslookup domain.locaæ' substituting domain.local with your own.

OK did both of thos,

COmputer name/domain changes
the following error occurred attempting to join the domain "***"
an attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has failed.  Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server that can resolve DNS names in the target domain

The funny thing is that I got the username and password box this time.  Seems to be a permission blocking somewhere?  Did they do something funny with 2008 DNS services not allowing foreigners to ask for directions?

I just got it to work, I went into DNS on the SBS2008 and set security for authenticated users to allow.  Not sure if the user account was hosing things, it was a network admin account, does not make sense...I've done 20+ of these 2003 version, I feel like I am learning all over again with 2008...ugh....thank you!

Hi Adaroc,

I noticed your question this evening and I wanted to comment. I understand that you are attempting to join your Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V host server to the domain that exists on your Microsoft Small Business Server 2008 virtual server, which is running as a guest server.

I would caution you to read this Microsoft TechNet article before moving forward:
"Best Practices for Using Hyper-V with Windows Small Business Server 2008"
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd239199%28WS.10%29.aspx

Reference the section titled:
"Do not join the instance of Windows Server 2008 that is running on the parent partition to the Windows SBS 2008 domain.           "

It is a Microsoft "best-practice" to have the Microsoft Server 2008 Hyper-V host be a member of its own workgroup, or have it be a member of another domain. Either way doesn't necessarily matter, as long as it is not a member of a domain that is a guest OS and is the singular DC in the environment.

I hope this is valuable for your situation.

Cheers!
