Cannot login to domain controller

I am facing a problem with domain controller login. It is not working. I am getting a error on the screen. The error says that Windows is unable to connect to the domain. The domain is not available. Please try again. I had checked my network where everything looks like working well. There is no issue with DC here. There are some workstations which are able to join. So this is a bit weird that only a few computers are facing the problem. How can I find the issue behind this.

Run cmd and in that type ipconfig /all hit enter. What you can see in that. If you are unable to read the same then post the details here. I think the issue lies with your dns. The client system is unable to collect appropriate information due to which you are facing problem. Just try to add all the settings manually and then check back.

I am using multiple domains here which looks to be working really well. There is no problem at all with the same. It is necessary that you must give complete information on your network settings. That will help to provide more troubleshooting support.
