Do you get the same result when specifying the fully qualified domain name in the domain join dialogue box?

What error is returned in the GUI when it fails?

Full logging is available in % SystemRoot %\debug\netsetup.log

The most common causes for not being able to join the domain being name resolution - are you sucesfully pinging the Domain Controller by name? Or the credentials being used when attmping to do the domain join.

Hope that helps...

and I cannot ping the server by name only ip so I guess it has to do with dns

If you check out the network connection settings, is it getting settings via DHCP or manually assigned?  If manually assigned, have you got the DNS server configured in there correctly?

Also, worth trying with the fully qualified domain name e.g is it THS.com  ?

DHCP.  I have three other pc's that are windows 7 pro already that have connected when I change them from workgroup to domain.  it's ths.local btw.

 It's just these windows 8 pro upgraded pc's  that are giving me issues.

Alicain,

I'm so sorry for leaving this open so long.  I just switched to using static IP's for now and that did the trick.  I have some clean up to do on the network.  I had DHCP running on the firewall and on the server.  There is also some DNS configuring I have to do.  Thanks for your help!
