No DNS server configured for local system

By just_me2007 ·
I have installed Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition for the first time. This server hosts the AD and it is also my DC, it is running DNS and DHCP. I have set up dynamic IP addresses for each computer (the DC has a static one). Then I installed Server 2003 on a stand alone machine that I'd like now to connect to the DC thru a switch. When I try to join the stand-alone server to the domain, I keep getting the error message that "No DNS servers configured for local system." (error code 0x0000267c DNS_ERROR_NO_DNS_SERVERS). It also says that
I have a missing SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.xxxxxx.local.

When I tried to join the domain from a XP machine, everything was fine. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thank this point I am clueless on what should I do next.

duh,...the NIC was not installed during the Win2k3 installation (!).

it is an onboard NIC, (motherboard Dell 0RY206)and I cannot find a driver that would work on 2k3. any clues?
