We have an established DNS/DHCP server which I cannot alter (except to
add/remove entries manually).

I am in the process of establishing our first Domain controller for the
domain (i.e. I've setup the DC).

When I try and add my Vista workstation to the domain I get DNS errors:

=========================
The Following error occurred attempting to joni the domain "DOMAIN":

An attempt to resolve the DNS name of the DC in the domain being joined
has failed. Please verify this client is configured to reach a DNS
server that can resolve DNS names in the target domain.
=========================

What manual entries do I need to create on our DNS for the server and
client to allow the joining to happen ?

Thanks
