Cannot find domain when joining Windows Multipoint server to domain

I am setting up a new server with Hyper-V.  The server has two VMs:

VM1 - Server 2012 Essentials
VM2 - Windows Multipoint Server 2012

I am trying to join the WMS machine to the domain via control panel/system and get the error the domain cannot be found.  I can ping, UNC and get to the connect page via the host name, but cannot join the domain.

VM2 has a static IP address and gets DNS from VM1.  

Could use some advice on how to get WMS to see the DC.

Can you ping the FQDN of the domain itself (ie. ping domainname.local) and have it return the IP address of the VM running Essentials?  If not I would look to DNS.

Yes.  I get the IPV4 address of both VM2 on one another and from my laptop plugged into the network.  

I built up new VMs for the two machines, in case something was not right with the first DC on the system.

Issue was resolved by disabling IPv6 on virtual network adapters inside the VM.  I was then able to login into the domain and the servers have been running fine with this setting.
