After creating an Active Directory domain controller I tried to add client computers to the domain but I kept hitting a snag.
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain x.x.com:
The error was: DNS name does not exist. (error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR) The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.x.x.com
After encountering this I made sure the client computer was using the preferred domain name of the server and the IP-address. Both computers were able to ping one another successfully.
After this I tried again and then hit another snag
An active directory domain controller for the domain zedvance.com could not be contacted
upon clicking the details i saw this
The error was: an existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.
I've been stuck on this for quite a while now.
