When I try to join newly built Windows Server 2012 R2 to a domain I get the following message:

The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "tlith.com": The error was: "DNS name does not exist." (error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)  The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.tlith.com
Common causes of this error include the following:
- The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:
10.1.100.21
10.1.100.11
- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:
tlith.com
com
. (the root zone)


How do I troubleshoot this?

Thanks,

Scott
