It sounds to me as if you need to declare the DNS server to the Domain, are you getting the address via a DHCP server? If you are then you need to tell the DHCP server to have the Primary domain as the one to send all DNS name requests too, if you do not the request is dropped because it doesnt know where to go.

If you are staticly assigning the addresses then add the primary DNS server as the pre-mentioned DNS server. If this does not work, ensure that the settings for the DNS server are correct and that they are not blocked by a firewall rule or other.

If you are using a router for a DHCP it will also allow you to assign DNS server to the list of DNS servers to advertise to the network.

start by posting a ipconfig /all from a workstation for review

next check in the MS dns server that there is a host and ptr record for the domain controller.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Also check if you can ping it by its FQDN. If you can, it may be as simple as adding a DHCP option 015 to your DHCP scope options.
