DNS issue when connecting Window 7 client to sbs2003

I am getting the below error when trying to connect a windows 7 pro client to sbs2003

The domain name "LAKESHORES" might be a NetBIOS domain name.  If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.

If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.

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 "LAKESHORES":

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.LAKESHORES

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:

192.168.6.5

- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

LAKESHORES
. (the root zone)

Can help would be appreciated

Is this the first Windows 7 machine on the network?

Is NETLOGON service running on the DC?

Is the SBS 2003 box handling DHCP on the network?

What DNS servers is the Windows 7 box being assigned? Is the IP of the DNS server SBS 2003?

We have 10 windows 7 machines on the network

Netlogon Service is running and have restarted to make sure all ok.

SBS 2003 Box is DHCP

DNS Windows 7 box was auto assigned to SBS2003 box - and I have also added it manually to make sure it has the sbs2003 box as DNS

What happens if you run DCDIAG on the SBS2003? Any errors?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

When trying to join the Win7 machine to the domain and you using just LAKESHORES, or, have you also tried the fully qualified domain name? Such as LAKESHORES.LOCAL or whatever your FQDN is.

I have also just checked the event viewer to find the events listed above:

"The session setup from the computer %1 failed because there is no trust account in the security database for this computer. The name of the account referenced in the security database is %2."

Yea, that error is easily fixed by removing and adding the computer back onto the domain.

Make sure the computer account is deleted from Active Directory.

If that doesn't work or it is gone try changing the computer name.

If you go into DNS on the SBS box....do you see _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.LAKESHORES

Try running IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS on the DC as well.
