A have a lab that has some VM's:

  • SrvDom: main DC / Server 2008 x64
  • SrvSQL: SQL Server 2008 testing / Server 2003 x86
  • SrvAppV: App-V testing / Server 2003 x64
  • and other XP Clients

The SrvAppV cannot see the DC and vice-versa, so I cannot add the server to the domain. If anyone has any idea, please tell me how to fix this...

Are these all VMs, and are they on the same or multiple hosts? I'm assuming you've checked for IP conflicts since I see you're using static IPs. –  John Feb 20 '12 at 21:28
    
When you say "The SrvAppV cannot see the DC", can you give us more specifics? –  joeqwerty Feb 20 '12 at 21:54

What @John said - are all of these on the same physical host? Which hypervisor are you using? Hypervisors can have multiple virtual networks that cannot communicate to eachother. –  Mark Henderson Feb 20 '12 at 23:31
    
I concur with @John. Have you tried enabling DHCP on this server and seeing if it can join the domain? IP conflict looks like the culprit here. –  Nic Young Feb 21 '12 at 0:51
    
@john: all are on the same host –  Remus Rigo Feb 21 '12 at 3:19

Just checked the network adapter for each VM and my srvappv machine was different from the others. It was set to NAT and the DC was set to bridged. So switched to bridged connection and that fixed the problem.
