Hi everybody,

i want to set up my server as Domaincontroller for my Windowsmachines. I

Everytime i want to join the Domain I got the following DNS-Error.

The domain name dschungel might be a NetBIOS domain name.  If this

If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the
following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.

location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain

    (error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

    The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.dschungel

    Common causes of this error include the following:
    - The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.
    - One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its
child zone:

    . (the root zone)

Some configuration files are attached.
Thanks for any help in advance.


PS: named-checkzone says OK
      named-checkconf says OK
      ping with any hostname works fine
      but Using "\\grissom" in Start--> Run says "Not found"
