exchange 2008 - adding a laptop to domain

I cannot get a laptop to join a domain.
I can ping ip addresses both ways.
From the laptop I can ping name/ip address

from the DC only ping ip address

This is the message I get:

Note: This information is intended for a network administrator.  If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\Windows\debug\dcdiag.txt.

DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain "XYZ.COM":

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

The following domain controllers were identified by the query:
server2008.xyz.com

The logon screen pops up but the above message appears.

I banging my head on this one.

Tried netbios name:  server2008
NOTHING

just says cannot find server2008 in DNS

tried:  server2008.xyz.com

I don't get it.  Why it is so difficult, this unit was built from scratch and very generic build

Did you configure preferred DNS server address in the NIC of the laptop to local dns server. Disable the local windows firewall as well as AV & then try.

Take a look at below article.
