Can't join domain with Vista business RRS feed

  • Question

  • I followed the instructions and get:

    An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC in the domain being joined has failed.

     

    When I look at my working XP system and compare it to the Vista system by doing Ipconfig/all, I see that the XP system has the domain name REALNAME.DM in the Primary Dns Suffix field of Windows IP Configuration, whereas in the Vista system that field is blank. Is that significant? If not, what else should I look for.  In particular, for the Ethernet LAN the Default Gateway, DHCP Server, and DNS Server values are the same in both systems. I am on a wired LAN. The server is Windows 2000.

     

    Thanks
