    I have tried all kinds of things, still no luck.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

  • On the client, try running netsh name show effective - do you see a bunch of information? (this is your NRPT, output in a different format than you are used to seeing on the DA-server side)

    Inside that NRPT information, you will see an IPv6 address, possibly listed multiple times under different records. Are you able to ping that IPv6 address from your DA client machine? This is the IPv6 listener running on the DA server that acts as your DA DNS server. If you are unable to flow traffic to this IP, that would mean you aren't able to do name resolution from the DA client, which could be causing your issue.
