Is there any possibility that you had a dc called default-hp , and it maybe crashed and hasnt been emoved from the domain properly?

What happens if you ping default-hp does it resolve to anything?

that error indicates that default-hp was a computer on the domain at one time but the computer account was deleted.  when the computer itself (still thinking it's on the domain) tries to talk to a domain controller, that message is generated on the domain controller because it no longer knows that computer since there is no domain computer account (reason why you can't find anything in ADUC)
