    Hi everybody,

    I'm trying to solve a problem, really close to this one:
    Microsoft Active Directory using cPanel for non-Microsoft DNS?

    I would like to configure the DNS server to correctly forward all the records needed for a machine to join an Active Directory domain from a remote site;

    Has anybody ever faced (and solved) this problem?
    Till now I've created these records with no success (see the error given by a machine that tries to join the domain)

    Code:
    domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     A     aaa.bbb.ccc.dd
    
    _msdcs.domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     A     aaa.bbb.ccc.dd
    
    _ldap._tcp.domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     SRV     "Priorità: 0
    Peso: 0
    Porta : 389
    Destinazione: server.domain.mydomain.it "
    
    _kerberos._tcp.domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     SRV     "Priorità: 0
    Peso: 0
    Porta : 88
    Destinazione: server.domain.mydomain.it "
    
    _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     SRV     "Priorità: 0
    Peso: 0
    Porta : 389
    Destinazione: server.domain.mydomain.it "
    
    _kerberos._tcp.dc._msdcs.domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     SRV     "Priorità: 0
    Peso: 0
    Porta : 88
    Destinazione: server.domain.mydomain.it "
    
    msdcs.domain.mydomain.it.     14400    IN     A     aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd
    
    _ldap._tcp.gc._msdcs.domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     SRV     "Priorità: 0
    Peso: 100
    Porta : 3268
    Destinazione: server.domain.mydomain.it "
    
    server.domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     A     aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd
    _ldap._tcp.pdc._msdcs.domain.mydomain.it.     3600    IN     SRV     "Priorità: 0
    Peso: 100
    Porta : 389
    Destinazione: server.domain.mydomain.it "
    
    This is the error a windows 10 machine gives me trying to join the domain (trying to translate from italian):
    Can anybody point me in any direction, I'm quiet lost here...

    Thank you

    Hello,

    The first step would be to use a website such as IntoDNS.com to verify the name servers used for the domain name are associated with IP addresses added to the cPanel server your domain is hosted on. If they do not, then you'd need to update the DNS records at the DNS host of the domain name, or consider switching the name servers to the ones provided by your hosting provider.

    Thank you.
