I shut firewall down, and it is happening on a win7 client and a win 2008 member server I am trying to join.  I also tried joining a win xp client, same results.  I ran netdiag and dcdiag verbose and looked at logs, and all the tests passed

This is the error:

The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.local

The following domain controllers were identified by the query:
server1.local
data-server.local


However no domain controllers could be contacted.

Common causes of this error include:

- Host (A) or (AAAA) records that map the names of the domain controllers to their IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.

- Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.

I found the issue.  It has to do with single label dns domains.  I will work on changing that.  I adopted a domain that was already configured as single label DNS
