Unable to Add PC to domain

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Dear All, we recently purchased 10 HP Compro 6000 Pro MT with Windows 7 Professional. We managed to joined two of the PC to our domain successfully. However, when we try to add the other PCs we get the following message.

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "xxx".

An attempt to resolve the DNS name of the domain controller in the domain being joined has failed. Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server that can resolve DNS names in the target domain.

Hope to get a detail solution.
Many thanks,
