Windows 7 cannot connect to domain

I got a new windows 7 computer and want to connect to the network. Other computers are on win xp and logs in to a domain april.local. When I try to connect the win 7 to the domain following error occurs: 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:Windowsdebugdcdiag.txt. The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "adis.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.adis.local Common causes of this error include the following: - The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC for the domain are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server automatically when a AD DC is added to a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS servers with the following IP addresses: - One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone: adis.local local . (the root zone) Pleas help

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It means that your client can not reach your internal DNS server. Use static configuration and hardcode your client to use your internal DNS server IP that holds forward lookup zone for your domain. ping your DNS server from that client machine to make sure that there is no connectivity problem.

    I just wanted to add how the issue can be recognized. The domain is a .local which would be an internal domain and the error shows us that the workstation is looking to an external DNS server due to the IP address. A .local domain can only be registered with internal DNS servers making the domain not able to be found. @VSh - I'm assuming this is the methodology you used here, let me know if I'm wrong and there is a better/different method.
