Not able to add pc to domain controller

sonamttobden 1 Reputation point


I recently have installed DHCP, DNS, and ADDC controllers on windows server 2012.

I can ping domain controller IP correctly, domain controller hostname correctly, but cannot ping the domain name, and thereby not allowing any pcs to join domain controller.

Additional note, all above server services are running on the same server windows 2012

please any one with the knowledge to this kind may kindly respond me here

    Please run;

    Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >C:\dcdiag.log
    repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc1.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\dc2.txt
    ipconfig /all > C:\problemworkstation.txt

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

    Hello @sonamttobden

    If your DNS is working properly, the most obvious reason would be that whatever device your pinging from is not referencing that DNS server. If it is, then the DNS server must not be working properly.

    You give few details. Is this Windows? Try nslookup and see what DNS server you are using. Also ipconfig to see what DNS servers are specified. Next step would be to see if you can actually reach the DNS server itself and if it can talk back.

    Hope this helps with your query,
