Can't connect windows 10 pro to Active Directory Domain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all

    I hope you can help.  I am trying to connect my windows 10 pro laptop to my windows server 2016 Active Directory Domain and yet when I try to join the domain, the error message is that the domain doesn't exist.

    I have made sure I have the following services running:
    DNS Client
    SSDP Discovery
    UPnP Device

    On the server:
    IP4:  ***.***.***.51

    Subnet mask:

    Default gateway: ***.***.***.1 - ip of router

    DNS: - I have read conflicting information about the DNS settings!

    On the client:
    IP4: ***.***.***.07

    DNS: ***.***.***.51 - server's IP

    My laptop is a named user in Active Directory.  I have checked the domain name.  I  can ping the server, but can't ping the domain.  I disable the firewall on  the domain, just to test it and it hasn't made a difference.

    Can anyone help me with this - I know there is probably a simple setting that I overlooked!!

    Thanks in advance
