We had a number of computers unable to access the domain network. they had been able to access the network when working off site via UAG Direct Access. but when on the physical network. all users except apple users could not access the domain. they can access the network not the domain on the network so they can ping by ip that is it.
The local network connection icon would say internet access rather then domain.local
Im not sure what happened or why it failed. I can ping everything by IP not DNS. Computers would not connect. we had to put computers into work group, rename them and then add them to domain to get them working.
now nothing is working. not sure of issue.
any help on how I can get this resolved before users come online in 8 hours.
running workstation computers are windows 7 ent
server 2008 R2
joining computer to domain I get this
an active directory domain controller (AD DC0 for the domain could not be contacted. etc...
in drop down box I get this

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.GCCSI
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:
