I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 (actually a SBS 2011, but it is a 2k8 R2 underneath) and a active directory domain running on that Server.
I now want to include our remote Web-Server into that domain so I can "reuse" the users (there is a TFS instace running on that server so I basicaly need all users from the local domain there).
To do this I created an OpenVPN Access Server (using the .ovs-Template for ESXi) and configured it including the port forwardings in my firewall.
I now can connect to the VPN-Server from the remote server using the connector application and also ping and access all local servers by their IP (even RDP works), but if I try a DNS lookup I do not get any response.
E.g. if I try
nslookup domain.local I get (
192.168.0.1 is the DC/DNS):
DNS request timed out. timeout was 2 seconds. Server: UnKnown Address: 192.168.0.1 DNS request timed out. timeout was 2 seconds. DNS request timed out. timeout was 2 seconds.
So I can not add the server to the domain, because it doesnt "find" the domain.
Does anyone know what the problem here is?
I would also be open to any other solution to the base problem of getting the TFS on the remote Server to authenticate using the domain users.
If I configure OpenVPN on Layer 2 instead Layer 3 I can not even ping the local servers.
