Network interfaces must be configured with DNS servers that can resolve LDAP service records in the domain. The DNS server did not respond to a query for the domain LDAP service record.

A DNS server configured on the network interface did not respond to a query for the _ldap._tcp.<DnsDomainName> service (SRV) record.

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) operations that depend on locating domain controllers might fail.
Configure the network interface to use DNS servers that host the domain zone or forward to DNS servers that host the domain zone.

Configure the network interface to use DNS servers that are able to resolve the _ldap._tcp.<DnsDomainName> service (SRV) record.
