Hello there,

I have Installed Windows Server 2003 Enterprise onto my Server and Set it up. When I go to change ANY of my computers to the domain it wont let me! It says that It could not contact the domain controller, But I have set up my server for domain controller. When I type in the Domain name, I have used both; vanquish and vanquish.domain
In the error message, it gives me this;

The domain name vanquish might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.

If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.

The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain vanquish:

The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

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

Common causes of this error include the following:

- The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.

- One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

vanquish
. (the root zone)

What DNS server is being used on your client PC? The internal one for your organisation or your ISP's? If using the ISP's DNS server, do you have one within your organisation and shouldn't your client PC be using it?

Can you PING the server by IP address? If yes, can you ping it by name? If not by name, what happens if you enter the IP address in your client PC's hosts file?

Check internal firewalls on your client PC, and read this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/331072/en-us
