Cannot rejoin domain
Posted on 2011-09-14
I removed a Windows Server 2003 from our domain, then temporarily joined a workgroup and now I want to rejoin the domain.
When I try to rejoin the domain I get the message that a domain controller for the domain xxxxx could not be contacted.
I can ping the domain controller using the IP address but I cannot ping it if I use the name.
Nslookup gives me the message "DNS request timed out" if I use the IP address or the name.
There is a host entry with the server name and IP under DNS Forward Lookup Zones and there is a pointer entry with the server name and IP under Reverse Lookup Zones.
