I have a virtual host running 4 VMs, one of which is the Domain Controller. All of them are joined to the domain, as well as another virtual host, and 1 workstation. I went to add another domain controller on the new virtual host, but when trying to join the domain I get 2 errors, depending on what I put in the "Domain" field when joining.
If I put "mydomain.local" in the Domain field I get:
The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "mydomain.local": The network path was not found.
If I put just "mydomain" in the Domain field I get:
An Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for the domain "mydomain" could not be contacted. Ensure that the domain name is typed correctly. If the name is correct, click Details for troubleshooting information.
The new server is pointing at the PDC for DNS, and the PDC is pointing at itself. I have tried formatting this server, which didn't work, then I also tried joining a workstation to the domain and got the same result.
I got this error after restarting the PDC:
Name resolution for the name 10.in-addr.arpa timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.
But I assume thats just because it is the only DNS server. Any ideas on what could be causing this?
