    Hi Rajesh,

    The domain not pinging in the server(win server2003) itself.

    1. Pls check in the Primary DNS suffix on DC, give dns suffix name over there.
    Ex:, need to give as

    2. You said you have configured the DNS, just let me know you configured Forward look zone with the name domain name..
    Ex:, your forward lookup zone name as

    3. IP address :
    Pls check IP configuration part on the DC.
    if the DHCP enabled for giving the IP addresses go the Client systems and make sure all system IP address getting or not..

    Please let me know about the status...
