  • Hello,
    Thank you for posting in our TechNet forum.

    Please troubleshoot as below:

    1. We make sure the IP address of the DC is a static IP. 

    2. Check whether we can ping the domain name of the domain we want to join?

    3. Whether the AD DC is also a DNS server? If so, we need to set the IP of the DC as the preferred NDS of this member server as below:



    Then we try to join the member server to the existing domain.


    If it does not workwould you please run ipconfig /all on both DC and this member server and provide the screenshot?

    Check whether all the server and clients can not be joined to the existing domain?
