DNS Error - Cannot joing a Windows 7 workstation to a SBS2003 Server
When trying to add a Win 7 professional workstation to the domain controller I receive the following error message:
An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a domain controller in the domain has failed. Please verify that this client is configured to reach a DNS server that can resolve DNS name in the target domain.
When I do an nslookup I get the following message. richtwpserver.richlandtwp can't find ... server failed.
The event log states it cannot find the SOA record. I deleted the old SOA record and created a new one. When creating the new one the .local was left off.
I have reviewed tech docs until I can't read any more. Nothing seems to work. I tried to run diag.exe /fix. It must not be installed on the server. Can I download it.
DHCP is running on the router. It seemed that DHCP and DNS work with each other so I was going to change it to the server and I recieved an error message.
None of the system are appearing in the forward zone record. System have been running slow and losing the connection to the SQL server. I am starting to believe that it is all stemming from this problem.
