Creating a Virtual Domain

Source: microsoft.public.virtualpc
Sent: 10/20/2005
From: "Frank J. Reashore" <(email address - cut out)>
Message:

I have two virtual PCs (running Win2003 Enterprise SP1) hosted on my home
WinXP Pro SP2 (which is connected to my ISP). I am trying to create a domain
of the two virtual PCs, but am encountering problems joining the second
virtual PC to the domain.

I converted the IP address of one Virtual PC to static, promoted it to a
domain controller, and installed DNS. I named the new domain
"mydomain.local".

Note also that I have assigned distinct names to each to each of the virtual
machines.

The second virtual PC has a dynamic IP address and belongs to WORKGROUP.

I am able to ping the virtual domain controller from the virtual client
machine. My exact network configuration is shown at the bottom of this
message.

When I attempt to join the client virtual PC to the domain (via Control
Panel => System =>
Computer Name => Change.), I get the standard login prompt (to which I enter
(email address - cut out)l and password). However, I then get the
following error:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location
(SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain
mydomain.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.mydomain.local

Common causes of this error include the following:

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

192.168.2.1

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

mydomain.local
local
.. (the root zone)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I presume that this error is occurring because my virtual client is using
the DNS of my ISP and it is not able to "delegate" the join request to the
"mydomain.local" domain.

Alternatively, I have tried to configure my client virtual machine to use
the DNS of the virtual domain controller but that also leads to different
errors.

So my question is: How do I configure my VPCs so that the join request for
the domain from the virtaul client is successfully passed to the virtual
domain controller?

Thanks in advance for any help.
