Make sure you've installed all the updates for the server, including select "Optional" updates. 


Specifically, install this on the server:




That said, the domain stuff requires that the DNS servers be properly configured, and the DHCP servers to be configured to hand out the server as the primary DNS server. 


The connector software does this automatically, but the "stock" one has issues.
