Amazon Web Services - AD Connector (Directory Services)

I'm trying to run a Hybrid Infrastructure with the combination of On premise and AWS Cloud. So far I have successfully created the VPC and establish VPN connection with my local infrastructure. My next task is to deploy desktops on AWS WorkSpaces for which I would like those desktops to join the local AD, as a result I need to configure AWS "Directory Service"

During the process of creating the AWS AD Connector I get the error below.

The Status transition reason is as follow:
Configuration issues detected: SRV record for LDAP does not exist for IP: 192.168.x.x, SRV record for Kerberos does not exist for IP: 192.168.x.x, SRV record for LDAP does not exist for IP: 192.168.x.x, SRV record for Kerberos does not exist for IP: 192.168.x.x. Please verify existing configuration and retry the operation.

Please help me...

This means that the AD connector can't reach the DNS servers that you specified when connecting to your directory.

You need make sure you have at least following ports open in the firewall if you're using an on-premises directory:
TCP/UDP 88 - Kerberos authentication

Ports are open and Also ran a test that Amazon provides. So thats not the issue. I know you pull that out from their pre req. if you search further on their site you will find a link pointing to Microsoft. It isn't help full.

Ok, but still, these errors point to the fact that communication with DNS doesn't seem to be working. Did you verify all DNS settings?

Can you reach your DNS server from the workspace PC if and when VPN is connected for example?
Can you perform nslookup of your domain?

Hey Bud thanks for trying but DNS isn't an issue - I spun up an instance on Amazon VPC and used a troubleshooting tool that Amazon provides for  DNS testing- it pass the test. I'm stuck with SRV record error.
