Freshly setup Server2012 DNS issues

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...

Are you able to ping to the Domain Controller?  Can you check if the DHCP provided the correct DNS entries to the computer.

Sometime, there may be some static DNS entry in the computer's netowrk settings.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

check on client system NIC card dns should be your domain controller IP Address and disabled IPV6 on the domain controller.

OR

Change DNS server listen client request only through IPV4.

Please find the dsdiag log attached run on the Server. Not sure how to address the following error:
Starting test: SystemLog

         * The System Event log test
         A warning event occurred.  EventID: 0x00001695
            Time Generated: 08/23/2016   20:31:31
            Event String:
            Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain 'abc.local.' failed.  These records are used by other computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an application partition).

Make sure on your domain controller nic card dns server IP Address must be your domain controllers IP Address.

Post successful changes run the below command

IPconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns

Also make sure in your dns server your domain controller 'A' record available and create reserve lookup zone also then run dcdiag.

The domain controller nic card dns server IP Address is 192.168.1.2 and its DNS was 127.0.0.1- changed it to 192.168.1.2. Flushed/registered DNS and the dcdiag came back ok. (Thanks!).

Not sure how to make the 'A' record available and create reserve lookup zone though...

DNS is not registering new computers when trying to connect to domain. When I manually add a Host A record to dns they can connect. I'm running DHCP from a router and will add the role to the Server...
