“Network Path Not Found” while joining server to the domain

Recently I had a problem, where I couldn’t join a Windows Server to the domain. It displayed the following error.

There can be various reasons why this errors shows.

  • Mistype DNS configuration.
  • Firewall issues.
  • Wrong domain typed.

Even though I had all above correct, I still had the problem.

So I used the following commands in a cmd.exe to resolve the issue.

Notice that “shutdown -r” will restart the server, and “netsh int ipv4 reset” will delete your static IP address, you will need to reassign the IP-configuration.
