The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted

Hi,
I have windows 10 PC and want to connect it to a domain that beings on vmware machine,
when I'm trying to connect it using 'Computer Name \ Domain Name' dialog and enter the domain name,
the 'user name' and 'password' displays,
but when I enter the 'user name' account with the password,
I'm facing this error 'The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted'
I can ping the domain using 'IP',

can you ping the domain name for example "ping domain.local"

Also could be that it cannot resolve the short name.

Make sure TCP\IP settings are setup correctly only pointing to local DNS servers for your domain. Remove all external DNS servers from your TCP\IP settings.
At command prompt: ipconfig /flushdns
Please post an ipconfig /all.

Bryant Schaper: no, I can not, I can only ping using server name and ip address.
dariusg: what can I put in dns, is it same ip gateway that beings on vmware?

Darius GhassemCommented:
DNS IP address should be the same as your Domain Controllers or DNS Servers.
Do an ipconfig /all on a workstation connected to your domain and one on the workstation that's having issues, so you can compare settings

Post an ipconfig /all

exactly, the IP of your DC or a DNS that points to your DNS.  That is the first step you should be able to ping your domain name and navigate to \\domain.local\netlogon for example.  Without that joining the domain will not happen.
