When I try to join the domain from the Windows 8.1 workstation, the attached error is displayed.  The error occurs after i enter the login credentials for the domain.  I can browse the folders on the domain controller, so I know the connection is there.

Verify your network settings.  If DHCP is the domain network running IPv6?  If not you'll have to disable IPv6 on the workstation so that it only uses IPv4.

Are you sure you have pro version (only pro versions can join domain)?

This has to work as long as the primary DNS server entry at the client is pointed at the DC.
If it doesn't, you have a network connectivity problem, mostly firewall related.

Did you enable Network Discovery (Advanced Sharing Settings)?

Have you tried a1.local (or a1.com) instead of just a1?
