no DNS zone for the domain = broken Active Directory

Active Directory will not work without DNS services. USers can't log on to the domain, access resources through the on and so forth...

I've not heard of any ISP that will provide DNS services to businesses for their Active Directory domain...Unless the business has specifically contracted for "Cloud" services or NOC services.

If that's the case, it's up to the Cloud provider or NOC to allow the workstation to join the domain. Typically, the Cloud provider or NOC will ship a preconfigured workstation.

So try again.....
