Joining Domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows 7 32bit. I am failing to join my Win 2003 domain due to DNS error. I try to save TCP/ip setting for the DNS ip but these are not getting saved. I have tried using DHCP fo the IP addresses but no DNS entries are saved. The error on joing the domain is : An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a domain controller in the domain being joined has failed.Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server.....

  • You have manually set DNS server but the issue persists. Correct? If so please let us which DNS server does it connect. You may change a DNS server in the domain, also try to set the directly connected router as the DNS server.

    If the issue persists, I suggest you temporary disable the firewall and check the result again.
