Hi Experts,
I'm having a big issue. I am trying to add a windows 7 computer to the domain of windows server 2008 r2 std. with not luck. It gives me the error : the specified server cannot perform the requested operation. I've tried many way to add the machine but I couldn't. It was working within a week and I've added the citrix box to the domain very good.!!

hi Can you ping your domain controllers and DNS server?
In my opionion something is wrong with your network connection configuration on computer with Windows 7.

Delete the existing computer accounts.
go down to windows firewall and stop it.

If machine is added to domain then

if you enable it, on control panel click on windows firewall and then click on exceptions. make sure "allow exceptions" is checked.
