Hello all,

I have only 1 2003 server on a domain and I am trying to join my 2008r2 server to the domain. I can ping the server by name, my dns is on the 2003 server.  both servers are set to the 2003 server IP address for dns (192.168.10.2). all firewalls are off , I even connected both servers together by themselves.  I get the message below.


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 "mydomain.local":

The error was: "This operation returned because the timeout period expired."
(error code 0x000005B4 ERROR_TIMEOUT)

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

The DNS servers used by this computer for name resolution are not responding. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:

192.168.10.2

Verify that this computer is connected to the network, that these are the correct DNS server IP addresses, and that at least one of the DNS servers is running.

Any help will be appreciated.
Ron
