cannot join pc to server 2008 domain
Posted on 2011-09-16
I have a Windows 7 Pro PC i am trying to join to my domain. I already have an XP Pro PC joined to the domain, but my windows 7 pc will not join.
I have tried setting a manual ip address to the same subnet as the server, tried setting the dns server as my server, setting the ip settings on the pc to automatic.
When i go to join the domain, i am prompted for the username and password, which is entered correctly, then i am faced with the following error:
"an attempt to resolve the dns name of a domain controller in the domain being joined has failed. please verify this client is configured to reach an dns server that can resolve dns names in the target domain."
What could possibly be the issue?
