I have a server 2008, domaIN name "ups.local"
Server is called "ups-srv-01"
When I try to join a windows 7 professional machine to the domain I get the following:
An active directory domain controller (AD DC) for the domain "ups.local" could not be reached

The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "ups.local":
The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.ups.local
Common causes of this error include the following:

They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:
- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:
. (the root zone)
Please can someone tell me what the default dns settings should be for the server 2008 dns setup and how to resolve this issue
