"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 set a domain Domain Controller (DC) as first DNS server on this computer TCP/IP properties?
- how is that you don't ping the domain name itself ? you mean if, from this computer, you ping a DC name for example SRVDC1 it works, on the DC's IP it works too, but on the fqdn (SRVDC1.domain.grp for example) it does not work?

Based on the error message above this is obviously a DNS issue. You need to be able to ping and and have DNS (primary) configured on your clients network adapter.

check DNS and try again.
