    When I try to add my computer to my win 2003 domain I get the following
    error

    The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location
    (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller
    (AD DC) for domain "DBTAYLOR.DEV":

    The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
    (error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)
    ETC

    DHCP is not configured on my Win 2003 server - the client's IP address is
    fixed.

    ipconfig/all give the following output

  2. Hello dreddog,

    Didn't you read my answer in microsoft.public.windows.server.active_directory
    with subject "Re: An active directory Domain Controller for the domain could
    not becontacted in windows vista Business"?

    Here it is again:
    I have no idea what your question is, as in the microsoft.public.windows.server.active_directory
    newsgroup is no old posting your replying to.

    BUT, your ipconfig /all from DTWS1 points to external DNS servers and if
    this machine is a domain member or should become domain member use ONLY the
    domain DNS servers on the NIC and not your ISPs one as it looks like, 208.67.222.222
    and 208.67.220.220.

    Remove the 2 DNS server ip's and add them as FORWARDERS under the DNS server
    properties in the DNS management console on the DOMAIN DNS server.


    Best regards

    Is DBTAYLOR.DEV your actual DNS name for the domain or is it the NetBIOS
    name? (NetBIOS names can contain dots apparently)

    From the ipconfig you posted, NetBIOS is disabled on the Win7 machine
    so you won't be able to join the domain using its NetBIOS name. If it
    has a different DNS name, try using that.

  4. DRedDog,

    As Meinolf said, how is it supposed to resolve an internal domain name info
    for your AD domain, when it is using your ISP's DNS address in ipconfig? It
    will never find it.

    Only put in the internal DNS server. This must be set on ALL AD machines.
    Setup a forwarder in DNS to point to that 208.x.x.x number. If not sure how
    to setup a forwarder, follow the instructions in the link below.

    323380 - HOW TO Configure DNS for Internet Access in Windows Server 2003 :
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=323380

    Keep in mind, as I mentioned, all machines in AD must only use the AD DNS
    servers. If you put in the ISP's, even mixing it up with internal DNS,
    *WILL* cause problems. Remove the ISP's DNS on the DCs.

    Also, if the DC is multihomed (more than one NIC that are not teamed, more
    than one IP, and/or if RRAS is installed). WILL ALSO cause major problems.

    Was this posted elsewhere, as Meinolf mentioned? May be a good practice to
    use Cross-Posting instead of Multi-posting. It will help you and us when
    asking for assistance. This way, you and the folks helping, only have to
    check one group, because all messages will simultaneously go to all groups.
    Multi-posting doesn't do that.
