Windows server 2008 doesn't joing server 2003 domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi
    I am trying to add my windows server 2008 as member in my server 2003 domain. My server 2003 is my DC and DNS. I have added one xp machine very easily to my domain and shows record on my DNS mngt. But my server 2008 is pain. keeps giving em same error.
    I am also copying my dcbug log here.
    ***************************************

    DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller for domain zzz.xxxx.ca:

    The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.zzzz.xxxx.ca

    The following AD DCs were identified by the query:

    domaincontrolle.zzz.xxxx.ca

    Common causes of this error include:

    - Host (A) records that map the name of the AD DCs to its IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.

    - Active Directory Domain Controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.

    For information about correcting this problem, click Help.

    Also my server 2008 has a satic IP and I can ping my DNS from server 2008.
    Please help,
    thanks.
