Domain Join DNS error

When Joining my Windows 7 Pro Client Machines to my Domain Controller I receive the following error but:

Error: Changing the Primary Domain DNS name of this computer to “” failed. The name will remain “SRV1.local” The error was:
The specified server cannot perform the requested operation.

I will accept the error and the machine still joins the DC and works okay.  It's only happening with my windows 7 Pro.  Windows 2012 and Windows 8.1 works okay without the error.

Need help to get rid of the error.

Thanks

1) Open an elevated command prompt.
2) Type ipconfig /registerdns to register the records.

Are your DNS servers set statically or dynamic from your DHCP server? Have you had a look at the DNS Event Viewer on the DNS server? Or the Event viewer on the PC? Just for giggles static your DNS servers once on a PC and see if you still get an error when joining.

On this machine do you have any DNS suffixes set? Or do you have any suffixes on your network adapters? See screenshot below...
