    Cannot join domain

    I have a computer setup as a domain controller with a primary DNS zone and
    this is the configuration of the network cards installed in it:

    Ethernet adapter PRIVATE:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : 3Com 3C900TPO-based Ethernet Adapter
    (Gen
    eric)
    DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 151.142.22.79
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 151.142.22.79
    161.155.22.25
    161.155.22.26

    Ethernet adapter PUBLIC:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R) PRO/1000 MT Network
    Connection
    DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.50
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.1
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . :161.155.22.25
    161.155.22.26
    NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Disabled


    As can be seen, I have two network cards one set for the internal network
    and the other to the external network. Also note that the IPs are not real
    so that not to identify network. Also I removed the MACs for the same
    purpose. I am trying to connect to the domain using this client, with the
    following configurations:

    Ethernet adapter Private:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast
    Ethe
    rnet NIC
    Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 151.142.22.28
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 151.142.22.79
    161.155.22.25
    161.155.22.26

    Ethernet adapter Public:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : ADMtek AN983 based ethernet
    adapter
    Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.102
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.1
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 161.155.22.25
    161.155.22.26



    I cannot join the domain with this client as it is giving this error :



    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.

    DNS was successfully queried for the service location (SRV) resource record
    used to locate a domain controller for domain server-a.local:

    The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.server-a.local

    The following domain controllers were identified by the query:

    testserver.mydomain.local

    Common causes of this error include:

    - Host (A) records that map the name of the domain controller to its IP
    addresses are missing or contain incorrect addresses.

    - Domain controllers registered in DNS are not connected to the network or
    are not running.

    Your help is greatly appreciated!!

    Multi-homed Domain Controllers are a bad idea. You will get all kinds of
    DNS problems.
