Windows client not able to join Domain.(ADC)

We have configured two eDirectory servers.

First server:: eDirectory+iManager+DSFW (SLES11-SP3, OES11-SP2)
ip:: 172.x.x.1

Second server:: eDirectory+iManager (SLES11-SP3, OES11-SP2)
ip:: 172.x.x.2

After complete installation of first server, we replicated partition from 172.x.x.1 to 172.x.x.2

Now, when we are trying to join a windows client to the domain by putting::
dns ip : 172.x.x.1 ->-> successfully joining
dns ip : 172.x.x.2 ->-> not joining, you can find the error message in attachment.

Any ideas?
Thanks

If you get no good response here, you might try the DSFW forum

The DNS configuration of Windows client seems incorrect. It shows 172.x.x.135 as primary DNS, but it should be the IP address of your PDC (172.x.x.1 or 172.x.x.2).

Sorry, please disregard my previous message. The behaviour described in the original post is exactly as expected. The only way to join Windows client to domain is to point the primary DNS to the DSfW server, and as indicated 172.x.x.1 is the only available DSfW server so using anyting else will not work.
