First, make sure the DC is setup as DNS server. The on each workstation, make sure TCP/IP is setup to point DC IP as DNS.

Or have the DC also be the DHCP server and have it hand out its own
address as DNS. Then have each workstation get its IP and DNS info
from there. When we first installed a Verizon T-1 line, Verizon
advised us to use their server for DNS. Forget that! I used ours.
