  • windows 7 client cant join server 08 domain

    Hi all,
    Get the following error when attempting to join windows 7 client to server 2008 R2 server hosting AD integrated DNS, DHCP

    In the computer name domain changes window:
    The following error occurred attempting to join the domain jeclafamilia.com
    The network path was not found..


    Troubleshooting wise
    Netgear router is Def Gway of 192.168.0.1
    Server is TheBeast with ip 192.168.0.2 with domain of jeclafamilia.com
    Client is minibeast with ip 192.168.0.3
    dns suffix on client is jeclafamilia.com
    Can ping/tracert to server ok..
    nslookup gives the following

    C:\Users\OWNER>nslookup
    Default Server: thebeast.jeclafamilia.com
    Address: 192.168.0.2

    > set type=all
    > minibeast
    Server: thebeast.jeclafamilia.com
    Address: 192.168.0.2

    minibeast.jeclafamilia.com internet address = 192.168.0.3
    > exit

    C:\Users\OWNER>

    Appropriate A and host record exists under zone for domain
    Same as for PTR under reverse lookup

    dnscmd /enumzones on server side shows 2 standard zones...

    Re: windows 7 client cant join server 08 domain

    what does the client have as it's DNS Server ?
    oh.. wait.. I think you told me that... at least, NSLookup is using the server as it's default..

    are you trying to join jeclafamilia or jeclafamilia.com ?

          yea, i tihnk you have found your problem.

          The DC should be pointing to itself for DNS.


          the other issue is, I can resolve jeclafamilia.com from out here..
          I think your DC is trying to add records for itself to the public dns records..

              Hi again tehcamel,
              I am led to believe half of my netlogon.dns records are outdated/wrong
              As every time i run dcdiag /test:dns...this pulls the records from netlogon.dns ..doesnt it..
              So if corrrect...How can I update them please?
              Records are ...

                Re: windows 7 client cant join server 08 domain

                I actually found this the other day.

                stop netlogon
                then rename the files at %systemroot%\system32\config\
                netlogon.dns and netlogon.dnb (I think they are called)
                to netlogon.dns.old and netlogon.dnb.old

                or something like that

                then restart..

                  Thanks for the update tehcamel,
                  Before your changes updated the dns details under tcpip on server to locally..ie 192.168.0.2..removed all other dns servers from this and also under server manager /server options....rectified all those other config issues...

                        OK, no problems there -- but worth checking anyway!

                        Sorry, no other brilliant ideas at this stage

                            Hey there Jhon ,

                            i thout of 2 things that you can try ,
                            hope it will help :

                            the first one is change the first DNS on the server to be : 127.0.0.1

                            and the second , try to :
                            > net use \\server\IPC$ /user:domain\administrator password
                            > net time \\server /set /y

                            maybe thier not in sync...

                            hope it will help and i'll let you know if i have another idea..
