    Make sure the domain controller and problem member both have the static ip address of DC listed for DNS and no others such as router or public DNS.

    Please run;

    Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >C:\dcdiag.log (run on PDC emulator)
    repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt (run on any domain controller)
    ipconfig /all > C:\%computername%.txt (run on EVERY domain controller)
    ipconfig /all > C:\problemworkstation.txt (run on problem pc)

    Also check the domain controller System and Replication (DFS or FRS) event logs for errors since last boot. Post the Event Source and Event IDs of any found. (no evtx files)

    then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.
