DNS is typically the main cause based on your screenshots of not being able to add a mahcine to the domain. Other things like permissions firewalls (already mentioned) etc.

Does this happen with any other machine? Are these machine properly imaged?

An incorrectly set up firewall on the client can prevent establishing a connection as well. Try turning off the firewall on the client PC and see if you can make the connection then. It may very well be a misconfigured firewall policy.
