    Facts:
    2 server, one in Miami (192.168.0.21) one in DC (192.168.2.2)
    Both servers are running DNS
    The DC server is a domain controler dc1.tewdc.tewla.com
    Miami Network 192.168.0.0
    DC Network 192.168.2.0

    I'm trying to add a new 2003 server into and existing domain, however, when
    I try to add it to the existing domain it does not see it. I've configured
    the DNS on the server I'm trying to join to the domain, as best as I know
    how, but no matter how I try it give me an error saying it can't see the
    existing domain to join to.

    I can ping ping the server
    I can do a nslookup to the domain.

    I created a zone on the server I'm trying to join with the name of the
    domain in DC "tewdc.tewla.com" in the DNS server in Miami.

    I can browse on IE and see the other server in DC by \\tewdc.tewla.com

    Any help would be appeciated.

    On the new server, where does the DNS point too?? I assume it is using the
    DNS from the Domain Controller??

    You mentioned that you can do an NSLOOKUP from the new server....is that an
    NSLOOKUP of a machine name, or can you actually lookup the Domain Name?
