So I have been trying to bind my desktop (Windows 10) to my virtual server (Server 2016 Datacenter hosted in ESXi 6.0) that is currently running DNS, AD, and file storage (this is a new install about 3 days old). However, when I try to connect to bind to my domain (lets call it domain.com), I receive the following error.
DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain "domain.com": The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.domain.com The following domain controllers were identified by the query: SERVER.domain.com However no domain controllers could be contacted. Common causes of this error include: - Host (A) or (AAAA) records that map the names of the domain controllers to their IP addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses. - Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or are not running.
This is confusing to me however because it
seems that my DNS is properly configured. I have set the DNS server of my desktop to IPv4 of my server, my server's DNS server is set to 127.0.0.1, I have created an appropriate computer object in AD, and I am able to ping the server by both IP and hostname from the desktop. The devices are on the same subnet, and inherently the same VLAN (configured in my switch). Below is my current DNS configurations.
I am fairly new to DNS and managing domains in general, but after many google searches I was unable to fins a solution to this issue. Any help would would be appreciated.
