I am trying to add a new (standalone) 2008 server into our plain vanilla AD (2 win 2008 DC + BDC) + a dozen client machines.
The error I get is
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 "domain.local":
The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.domain.local
Common causes of this error include the following:
- The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:
- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:
. (the root zone)
The strange thing is that the above seems correct as far as the domain name goes and the IPs of the DNS servers - the machine I am trying to join is getting it's IP through DHCP from those DC (172.16.200.x subnet in our case) and everything seems to work ok network wise.
Any idea / suggestion most welcome
