Do you have any firewalls setup on your domain that might be blocking ports that are needed?

Try Pinging the DNS server and see if you are able to communicate with it. If not trouble shoot your connection to that server. If you can then trouble shoot your connection to the AD server.

You may have already created a Computer OU for this computer. If you used the same computer name for your VM computer as the Host computer that it is running on then there is your problem. You VM computer name needs to be different. I usually add VM to my VM computer names so that I can identify them and make them unique.

"Ping to DNS is Failed,"

This is your issue. You need two things, DNS and AD to join a Windows Domain. Trouble shoot why you can not see the DNS from VM. You may also want to post a n IPCONFIG /ALL from your VM and one from your Computer hosting the VM. Also, are you using a Static IP for your VM or DHCP?

Yes, and you need to specify a DNS server when you use Static IPs. So did you specify the IP to your DNS server when you setup the static IP? It is most probably on you DC so put it's IP in for the DNS.
