When attempting to join a domain, the following is returned:
In any event, SRV records cannot be added to resolv.conf files (or hosts files). They can only be served out by DNS servers.
There are three options:
- Point all to Active Directory (AD) DNS.
- Forward the AD zones from whatever DNS server they are using (possibly best for their environment).
- Configure new (bind) DNS servers (possibly even on the boxes themselves) that either forward the zones or host the AD data directly using an export from AD. This is not recommended as it takes a lot of maintenance to keep current.
All products which bridge AD will have similar requirements.
