The following error occurred attempting to join the domain: An error with no description has occurred


A server in our network seems not yet in our domain, so i am trying to register/insert it into our domain.
But following error occurred:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain:
An error with no description has occurred.


Not sure why. Didn't google yet ho. So i went RDP into my Domain Controller.
Discovered the Computer Name was Disabled.

WHY THE F?

i don't know. So, i enabled it back. Click on Computers on the left pane. Then Right Click on the Computer Name, and Enable Object.

however, that DID NOT solve my issue. Hmm.. Google it is.
i gogled and stumnble upon this:

Followed that conversation betweet IT ete and Customer and realize the keyword: DNS!! :D

Did two things:

1) set the Domain Controller IP as the DNS server (Primary)
2) add the Domain Controller's IP and hostname into the server's c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file. but i think this no 2 is optional.

Tried again, and it worked like a charm! :)
