When trying to add a computer to the newly minted domain I get a error message:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "xxxx".
An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a domain controller in the domain being joined has failed.

This is interesting because I already have 4 computers that have successfully been connected. I have configured DHCP to run on a router and was wondering if it probably should be running on the Server....
Thank you for any comments that can help. Running on a few hours of sleep over the last few days in trying to get this network back up...
