    Default 70-640 VM joining domain computer to domain controller:

    I am following the information from the book 70-640.. I must join Server02 to the domain controller. I am unable to do so and get errors:
    netdom join %computername% /domain:contoso.com /userd:administrator /passwordd:"

    or
    netdom join %computername% /domain:contoso.com
    The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted
    The Command failed to complete successfully


    Server01-Windows Server 2008 Standard
    ipv4 address 10.0.0.11(preferred)
    subnet mask 255.255.255.0
    default gateway 10.0.0.1
    DNS Servers 10.0.0.11

    Server02- Windows Server 2008 Core Installation
    ipv4 address 10.0.0.12(Preferred)
    subnet mask 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway 10.0.0.1
    DNS Servers 10.0.0.11

    For Server01, i can ping 10.0.0.11 and contoso.com successfully. I cannot ping 10.0.0.1(Server02)
    Reply from 10.0.0.11: Desitnation Host Unreachable

    I cant ping 10.0.0.11 from Server02 either

    Most likely an issue with the gateway. I cant ping the gateway either. Not sure what i am doing wrong. SImply following the instructions from the book. Any ideas?

    Turn off the windows firewall on both servers, that thing causes a ton of head aches in the lab.

    Next review your networking, If you cant ping the gateway something is wrong.

    Are they connected to the same virtual switches? Is the switch and your Host computer connected?
