Server 2012 R2 AD Upgrade Guest (Virtual) 2012 R2 Trial Servers Network Awareness Problem

I'm upgrading the host and the guest servers to 2012 R2 but although the servers show up in the AD Computers shell  after disjointing and rejoining the guests from the domain they still show as "Private" rather than "Domain".
Network awareness is turned on and the firewall appears ok but this does seem to be affecting the connectivity particularly in the web server.
I'm out of things to try. Thanks

All host have the DNS suffix list under Network settings?

On one of your member servers is does the follow registry key contain the name of your domain?

HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\History\NetworkName

If this is correct try changing the Network Location Awareness service from Automatic to Automatic Delayed then reboot the server
