no logon server available

Before I begin please don't judge.  I have tried to get them to upgrade but no luck.  With that being said, here is my problem.  I have an old domain server running W2K Server.  I am trying to join a Windows 8.1 client to this domain with no luck.  I have tried everything that I can think of?  Please help.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you verify the security setting.
Network security: LAN Manager authentication level
You could try setting it to "Send NTLMv2 response only"

No that didn't work.  I can logon using the local account and see the domain network.  I can access the folders by entering the domain username and password.  I just can't logon using the domain username and password when the computer first starts up.
Do you have anything in the Event Logs of the workstation and/or domain controller?  If not, enable auditing of login/logout events and try again.  Then recheck the logs to see if we can determine the cause of the problem.

I get this error...

Event ID 8020 - The system failed to register host (A or AAAA) resource records (RRs) for network adapter.
I assume that the DNS server on the NIC of the Windows 8.1 computer is correctly set.
Can you try to open a command prompt (cmd.exe) from Windows 8.1 and execute
nslookup <hostname of domaincontroller>
nslookup <domainname>

Is the Windows firewall enabled on the Windows 8.1 computer ?
Is IPv6 enabled on the NIC ?

Logon to the domain then what is error message that appears?
Ping the DC to see if there is slowdown
 Try  startup with safe mode,  network support

Sorry no of the suggestions worked.  I ended up putting Windows 7 on the laptop and had no problem.
