Unable to Contact Active Directory Domain Controller
Posted on 2014-03-06
I have a thin client server that will not reconnect to a domain. I have reset tcpip and winsock. There is no entry in my internal DNS server. I can ping the server by ip because the ip is static but I cannot join a domain.
I keep getting the message, "An Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "My Domain" could not be contacted ."
I am running Windows Server 8 R2. I can go to the internet and ping DNS server, DHCP server, and gateway.
From other computers I can ping the troubled server by ip but not by host name. I added a manual A record in DNS and it still doesn't work. Any suggestions experts? Thanks in advance.
