On a beefy server, I have a few Virtual Machines (VMs) running. On one of those, I have Domain Controller (DC) with a domain name (ex:SQL.AD.COM) running successfully. Now, I need to add the other VMs into this domain. How do I do that?
For AlwaysOn, all nodes must in a domain. So, for that to happen, all nodes need to be added to the domain created by the DC. When I go to My Computer >> Properties >> Computer Name >> Change Settings >> Computer Name (tab) >> Change >>
I can change the computer name, but could not add the VM to the domain. What is missing?
This is the error I get: I have the following network properties for each VM.
Domain Controller has 1 NIC
- Name: AD
- Type: Host-Only Adapter
- Static IP Address (of VM): 126.96.36.199
What IP address settings do I need to configure for VM's to be able to join the domain? I have 3 nodes (VMs)
After @Phil comments, I removed the 200.201.xx.xx IP and added 192.168.1.x IP address pattern.
