Joining Vista Clients to Windows Server 2003 AD Domain
I have a problem joining Vista Clients to Windows Server 2003 AD Domain. The
error message is "An attempt to resolve the DNS name of a DC 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 Windows XP clients are all connected to the domain without any problem.

Please help me out.

Assuming you can ping the Internal DNS server, you may need to re-assign the
DNS manually. This post may help.
