Any errors if using nslookup command? Also posting the result of ipconfig on the Vista may help.

I'm trying to connect my new Ultimate Vista system to a Server 2003 with SP2
on it but it fails and I get this error. I know the server works since I can
join XP pros and 2000 systems. Here is the error I get. Can someone please
tell me what changed that made things less user friendly in Vista than it was
" Your computer could not be joined to the domain because the following
An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DV in the domain being joined has
failed. Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS server that
can resolve DNS names in the target domain."
The client is automatically assigned 3 dns ip from the DHCP. The 3rd one
being the one to resolve the local domain. I have ping from the client and I
get no problems.
