We have a new Win10 PC cannot join server 2012 domain. Previously, other PC can be solved by adding "AllowSingleLabelDnsDomain" in registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon\Parameters
But this time it cannot. Below is the error message:
I have hard coded the DNS for the two domain controller and can ping. What I guess that the domain is setup many years ago (2003 version), and on that time there ".com" adding to the end. (i..e it is called abc domain, not abc.com domain). We have upgraded to the 2012 domain last year.
After the upgrade, sometimes we find the PC cannot find the domain.
