Joining any windows clients onto domain issue
Got an issue since we have upgraded our Active Directory DC's, DNS and DHCP to windows 2008. I think the problem is to do with DNS but want a second opinion and more importantly how to fix it.
Previously when we had 2003 servers, when we wanted to join a XP, vista client to the domain we could just type in the domainname when joining the computer, our domain name is queensbridge but it now seems we have to type in the alternative domain name that was given to us when the domain was created which is queensbridge.pri. When we type in queensbridge and press return we receive the following error message:
"The following error occured when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain queensbridge:
The error was "DNS name does not exist"
I have also included an attachment of the error message.
It seems like a DNS issue but am not sure how to resolve it. Do I just need to register the DNS SRV record for it to work?
Have other members seen this problem before and provide any tips on how to sort
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
