  • Hi,

    Thanks for your reply and sorry for replying so late.

    Did you mean that you installed all the roles on a single server. In general, it is not recommended to install the DHCP server role on a DC.

    In addition, did you encounter the DNS name resolution issue? If not, please check GPO to see if you any misconfiguration.
    In addition, please check the TCP/IP settings on the server and see if it is pointing to the correct DNS server. Also mark the "register this connection into DNS" on the TCP/ IP settings. Then you can run “ipconfig /flushdns” and “ipconfig/registerdns” at the command prompt on the client computer to see if the issue persists.

    If the above is not helpful, I would appreciate it if you can post the results of running “ipconfig/all” on both the client and server side.

    Best regards,

  • Hi,

    Firstly, please make sure that your internal DNS server is the server for the domain you are logging in to. In addition, please make sure that DNS server is able to resolve information about your domain.
