Domain ControllerTerminal ServerIP Property in Win2008Domain JoinHi,
  I have set up two virtual machines in my Microsoft AZure account and I am trying to join W2008 VM to W2012 Domain Controller.

 Here is information with Windows 2012 Serve/DC:
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 100.79.50.31
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 100.79.50.1
 Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : KN1
 Primary Dns Suffix  . . . . . . . : KN-Cloud.com
 Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Peer-Peer
 IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
 WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
 DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : KN-Cloud.com

Here is information about Windows 2008 that I like to join the DC above.

 Ipconfig /all >
   Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : KN3.j2.internal.cloudapp.net
   Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::1b:dfe7:40c2:f136%11
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 100.79.164.104
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.254.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 100.79.164.1
     DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.102.215.82
   DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 100.79.50.31

  I have already entered IP address (100.79.50.31 ) of DC/W2012 in the TCP/IP properties of Windows 2008 Server (please see the screenshot). When I tried to join the domain, I get an error "An Active directory Domain Controller for the domain "kn-cloud.com" could not be contacted. I entered kn-cloud.com in the Domain field on Domain Change screen (please see the screenshot)

Can you help?
