    i cannot connect client to domain

    edbren Lurker

      Hi I am new to oracle. I have just started studying for my AD exam so decided to follow train signal and set up a network. I have 2 DC set up both speaking to one another and updating through active directory. I have now set up Vista client and it will not join the domain I get the following message


      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.

      The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller for domain globomantics.com:

      The error was: "This operation returned because the timeout period expired."
      (error code 0x000005B4 ERROR_TIMEOUT)

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

      The DNS servers used by this computer for name resolution are not responding. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:

      192.168.5.3
      192.168.5.2

      Verify that this computer is connected to the network, that these are the correct DNS server IP addresses, and that at least one of the DNS servers is running.

      I have been looking now for about 5 days and have tried every single answer solution I have found on the net but I get the same error, I have even tried a windows 7 client and have had the same result.

      the 2 DC I have are set up as follows
      NY-DC1
      IP 192.168.5.2
      default gateway 192.168.5.1
      preferred DNS 192.168.5.2
      alt DNS 192.168.5.3

      NY-DC2
      IP 192.168.5.3
      default gateway 192.168.5.1
      preferred DNS 192.168.5.2
      alt DNS 192.168.5.3

      client Wins Vista
      preferred DNS 192.168.5.2
      alt DNS 192.168.5.3
      I am also getting a message now to update my Ethernet but have no idea how to get onto the internet from the VM. I have dropped the driver into the VBOX folder but it will not work. I have also installed Guest additions which I thought was the updated drivers.

      this is becoming a pain can somebody help
