The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "crayveon.com": The specified network name is no longer available.

    Question

  • I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 host running ADDS for the crayveon.com domain.  The server also has the DHCP, DNS and Hyper-V roles enabled.

    In created a Hyper-V client and installed Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 on it as well.  I set it as fixed IP and attempted to join it to the host domain.

    I am prompted for an account authorized to join the domain and enter the domain administrator credentials.  After a long while, it fails with this error:

    The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "crayveon.com": The specified network name is no longer available.

    Does anyone have any idea to get the client to join the host domain?

    Thanks

  • Hi Cornelius,

    First of all, is your virtual machine (your guest) is configured with the same Virtual Network
    as your host (your parent partition) ?

    Second of all, did you configure the same Mask, Gateway and DNS in your virtual machine as
    your host ?

    Finally, did you try to ping the IP address of your host and the FQDN of your domain ? If it doesn't
    work, you should disable the firewall in your host and try again the steps.

    We wait for your answer ...

    Hope to help you.

  • From the Guest (VM) when you ping crayveon.com what is the response?  could you please post along with the IPCONFIG /ALL for the Guest and host?

  • It sounds like a name resolution issue.  Make sure you are using the correct DNS server IP address on the hyper-v guest. Can you ping DC from this guest server?

  • I was able to ping  the PDC from the Client via both IP and FQDN.
    I trust that answers your question...

  • Thanks Sean, Santhosh and David for your replies.

    In the end, turning OFF the Firewall before joining the domain did the trick, even though I had a firewall rule for the client IP.
