    check you can ping the DC by both NetBIOS name and FQDN
    Try joining domain.com (FQDN) rather than just domain (short name)

      Is this in a Virtual lab?

        You need to ensure that the client's IP address is in the same range as the DNS server. You also need to make sure that the client's DNS configuration points to a valid domain DNS server (preferably) two.

        Following on from Ossian's recommendation you can specify the FQDN e.g. council.local by opening System properties > Advanced > Computer name and then clicking the More... button. This will allow you to enter the FQDN.

        Can other PC's be joined to the domain?

          This isn't a requirement.

          I agree.

          You can just type the FQDN when joining. No need to make this change.

            firstly
            check your ip configuration on network card

            ip address and dns server
            and write your domain.local or domain.com
            ok
            thanks

              Who is providing the DNS services for this domain? Is it the DC itself? One of them (if you have more than one)? Who is responsible for the clients' IP settings? Is it a DHCP that runs on a network device (WiFi router for example), or is it a Windows Server based DHCP?
              Cheers,
