Cannot add windows 2008 machine to the domain

Windows 2003 Forest with Domain and Forest functional level at 2003
DNS is looking good and can ping and reach domain controllers. All services needed are running but get following error while adding 2008 R2 64 bit machine to domain
I am getting login prompt to enter the credentials to add to domain (this account has enough privileges to add to domain) but failing with error "Network location cannot be reached"
Any help is appreciated.

Is there a firewall between the server and the DC which could be blocking RPC?

What is the FQDN (full computer name) of the Win2008 server? Just right after the install, there is no domain name unless the DHCP provides it.

If the full computer name is equal to computer name, you may need to add DNS suffix that matches the domain you are trying to add the server to. That can be done in system properties, computer name and behind the More button you can set DNS suffix. Reboot and try to join the domain again.
