  • I'd check that DC and problem member both have the static address of DC listed for DNS and no others such as router or public DNS. Also try using the domain's netbios name or check that it is valid.

  • Both DC and Member has assigned static IP. Also DNS ip is cofigured properly on client

  • If a single isolated client then you may just need to build a new one. If any client then you may have to dig a little deeper into server-side by checking dcdiag and system event logs for errors.

  • Pretty sure the issue you are having is due to IPV6 and the older OS's.. If you disable IPV6 on the DC, DNS, DHCP server, and on the client, and clear the ARP table, and the DNS cache, this should resolve your issue.. at least on the addition of antique servers..

  • None of the DC are configured with Ipv6.

    Only I could see in client is, netlogon service is in stopped state. Will that cause any issue ?

  • Hi Mcteer,

    May I ask what exactly error message do you get when joining?

    Please follow the blog to do a check.

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/1935.troubleshooting-domain-join-error-messages.aspx

    Could you please also show the results about ipconfig /all from the DC/DNS servers and the member server

    In addition, you could also refer to the thread discussed before.

  • The Netlogon service should recycle itself though out the day, so that may not be an issue.. it could be, but only if it is actually throwing a crashed error, or critical error.. otherwise i wouldn't worry about it.. 

    How do you have your time set? 

    Is the time between the DC and the 2008 Box set to the same time? Or is there a mega skew between times? 

    When you say you have IPV6 disabled, do you mean you unchecked the check box in the NIC, or do you mean you disabled IPV6? 

    These are different, one requires a command through command prompt, the other is a check box.. 

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/929852/how-to-disable-ipv6-or-its-components-in-windows

    NOTE: the IPV6 is set to the favored connection by default in 2008 server, and will require either the download fixit, or will require the modification of the registry to fix the IPV6 vs IPV4 usage..
