I'm running 2 Server 2008 machines, one's my primary DNS/DC and the other will be a DHCP/WDS server (this is for a home environment), but when I try to add my DHCP/WDS server to the Domain, it times out.

I'm running this network on a dlink wired router.

Error when attempting to add to the domain:

Note: This information is intended for a network administrator. If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\Windows\debug\dcdiag.txt.

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 "testad.local":

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.testad.local

Common causes of this error include the following:

  • The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses:

10.0.0.2 24.226.1.94 24.226.10.194 24.226.10.193

  • One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

testad.local local . (the root zone)

Ipconfig /all return:

When I run an nslookup on my server, it returns with:

Server: UnKnown Address: 10.0.0.2

*** UnKnown can't find 10.0.0.2: No response from server

I double checked that 10.0.0.2 is DC/DNS server's IP, and it is.

Thanks in advance!

your IP address in your ipconfig /all is bad.

Set it to a static IP in the same range as the DC (10.0.0.3 perhaps). A DHCP server must always have a static IP, because without a valid network connection it cannot ask itself for DHCP services.

169.254.33.182 is a Zero-Conf/AVAHI/Bonjour address, and will not work with other devices unless they too are using zeroconf addresses and services.

Windows uses Zeroconf address as a fallback when the system is set to be a DHCP client, but cannot reach a DHCP server.
