Unable to add AD Domain to VCSA 7.0

I have installed an ADDS on a previously configured DNS server here in my home lab. The VCSA is configured with the DNS server IP address and other details. When I try to add the domain attari.com here in the configurations for Active directory. I am getting an error "Idm client exception: Error trying to join AD, error code [2453], user [Administrator], domain [attari.com], orgUnit []"

1. I have tried demoting and removing the AD role and adding it again.

2. Resetting the password etc.

Kindly hep me out.

VCSA Version: 7.0 

MS Server: 2k16

Try    /opt/likewise/bin/domainjoin-cli join [domain] [user name] [password]
Make sure nslook for vcsa hostname works fine
