I am having issues with joining Windows 7 clients to server 2008 r2 domain.      The machines are able to ping the PDC through name and IP address.   The clients are able to join the domain but after joining receive the following message
Changing Primary Domain DNS failed, Name will remain domain.local.

RPC server Unavailable.  

The clients that are already joined to the domain are not having any problems logging in.    
Thanks in advance for any help.

Make sure those clients you are joining to the domain are not already in DNS or in AD.  Remove all instances of those computers then try again.

That is what we did yesterday after we started experiencing the problem.

I assume all firewalls are off domain, public, and home for your DC and workstations.
Uncheck ipV6 on all your nics.

Firewalls are off and IPV6 is not checked for all nics.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Check TCP/IPv4 settings and make sure the DNS address is pointing to your AD DNS server.
Check DNS server server is running and the Forward and ideally Reverse Lookup zones are set up and configured ok. The DC server should look at itself for DNS and forward external lookups to ISP DNS servers.

I changed DNS IP to PDC.    This resolved the issue.  Now I have to figure out why this was the solution considering when I ran IPCONFIG /all the DNS address was the exact same address I entered.

Check the DHCP scope settings to make sure PCs pick up the correct AD DNS server address.
