NS 7 file server cannot find any DC


when I try to join a new file server to the AD domain, I get the error message “AD-DNS-Server - Could not find a Domain Controller”.
Yet I can ping from this file server to the DC.
What goes wrong here? Is there something missing?

Hi @rasi,

you have to put the IP address of the nsdc as AD-DNS-Server.
Can you ping your domain from your fileserver?
It may help to set the Nethserver as DNS server on the fileserver.

Yes, yes and yes, it’s all tried and done. But thanks anyway.

You’re welcome.
Do you use virtualization? Maybe enable promisc mode on DC VM.
Is your DC a NethServer?
