    Hi, I've setup a "test environment" of a windows domain at work, so that we can show our employer the benefits of utilizing a Windows domain in our work environment across Southern California.

    We currently have (01) Domain Controllers running the roles of AD, DHCP, DNS.
    I then setup a "Hamachi Gateway Network" online, and installed the Hamachi client on the workstations listed below.

    Domain Controller #1
    Location: Long Beach, CA // OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
    Roles: Active Directory, DHCP, DNS

    Workstation #1
    Location: Compton, CA // OS: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
    Note: With the following settings listed below, I was able to successfully join the computer to the domain.


    Network Adapter: (Settings from Network Connections)
    Hamach - ###-###-###
    contoso.com
    Hamachi Network Interface #2

    Ethernet adapter Hamachi - ###-###-###: (Settings from IPConfig)
    Connection-specific DNS Suffix: contoso.com
    IPv4 Address: 10.10.10.151
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway:

    Workstation #2
    Location: Los Angeles, CA // OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
    Note: With the following settings listed below, I was unsuccessful in joining the computer to the domain.


    Network Adapter: (Settings from Network Connections)
    Hamach - ###-###-###
    Unidentified Network
    Hamachi Network Interface #2

    Ethernet adapter Hamachi - ###-###-###: (Settings from IPConfig)
    Connection-specific DNS Suffix: contoso.com
    IPv4 Address: 10.2.10.152
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway:

    Workstation #3
    Location: Santa Ana, CA // OS: Windows 7 Ultimate
    Note: With the following settings listed below, I was able to successfully join the computer to the domain.


    Network Adapter: (Settings from Network Connections)
    Hamach - ###-###-###
    Unidentified Network
    Hamachi Network Interface #2

    Ethernet adapter Hamachi - ###-###-###: (Settings from IPConfig)
    Connection-specific DNS Suffix: contoso.com
    IPv4 Address: 10.10.10.153
    Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway:

    My question is why is "Workstation #2" showing up as "Unidentified Network" and using a different IPv4 Address than "Workstation #1" and "Workstation #3"?
