  • Hi,

    I am unable to join the domain.getting the below error

    Note: This information is intended for a network administrator.  If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\Windows\debug\dcdiag.txt.

    An error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "navins.com".

    The error was: "No records found for given DNS query."
    (error code 0x0000251D DNS_INFO_NO_RECORDS)

    The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.navins.com

  • Hello,

    please post an "ipconfig /all" of your Domain Controller server AND of your affected client.

    Thank you

  • Hmmm... it seems you are missing some SRV records in the DNS.

    Inthat case, you should logon to your DC and run a dcdiag

    logon on your Domain Controller, open a command prompt as admin and run the following command: dcdiag.exe /V /C /D  /s:%computername% > C:\Temp\dcdiag_%computername%.log

    Then open the C:\Temp\dcdiag_%computername%.log and look for any errors.  There might be some errors related to SRV records that are not registered.

    To fix this, you can restart your Domain Controller (or just restard the "netlogon" process).

    After that, look in the DNS if the missing SRV records are created.

  • Hi vishak.k,

    According to your description, it could be a problem of DNS or the firewall blocks the traffic. Please refer to the link below about can't join a Server to Active Directory domain. It has the same error as you provided.

    Hope it will be helpful to you
