i took three brand new computers out of the box yesteday.  All win 7 pro.  first thing i did was join them to the domain.  no problem.  actually left them up and on the domain last night when I went home.

this AM, I had an error that prompted me to remove one from the domain and rejoin it. it would not rejoin.  now, I have discovered that non of my win 7 pro boxes can join the server 08 domain even though they joined it yesterday.

I have worked DNS and it was already ok since this server has been up for several months and no issues.  it's only this morning that I have this problem.  all of my existing XP machines are still fine.

ideas?  

thanks

Just out of the topic. Have you tried to disable IPv6 on those Win7 clients?
