  • Question

  • Hi

     I installed Win7 in first computer.

     In second computer, I installed Srver2008 and domain

    I want to join first computer(win7) to domain. My DNS is set to " 127.0.0.1" my domain name is "contoso.com"...

     I select computer name -->change-->domain, When I type "contoso.com",then an erorr message appear: ...domain"contoso.com"could not contacted... Ensure that domain name is typed correctly

     When I type "contoso" without .com I can connect to domain. then windows of username and password appear, but when I enter the username and password, an error message reveal: "an attempt to resolve the dns name of a dc in the domain being joined has failed.Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server that can resolve DNS name in the target domain"..

    Why did you set the PC to point to itself for DNS?  It should be pointing to the server.  The server should point to itself for DNS, is that what you are saying?  If you have DNS setup correctly you should be able to ping the server, from the PC, by hostname.
