Windows 2016 Server Adding Domain Controller to Existing Domain Failure

Windows 2016 Server Adding Domain Controller to Existing Domain Failure

Windows 2016 Server Adding Domain Controller to Existing Domain Failure

(OP)
When I attempt to add domain controller to existing domain in server manager I get a message saying that the domain controller for the domain cannot be contacted even though I can ping the IP of the DC. However when I run DFSDiag /TestDCs /DOMAIN:HOMELAB.COM I get an error saying either the specified domain doesn't exist or could not be contacted. I have my DNS settings on the ethernet adapter pointed at the DC IP. Not sure what else to do.... A little help would go a long way.
