Why not just put the other 2 servers onto the domain? Problem solved...

Otherwise you need to do the following:

1. Create a user account as: Domain\Admin Account on your media server.

2. Edit the hosts file on the media server to allow resolution of IP address and name of the DC.

3. When trying to add the server, choose the user account created in #1.

Simply adding the 2 servers to the domain gets around this and you won't have an issue.

CraigV's picture up BE 2012 and add in a user as: DOMAIN\UserName

You also wouldn't create a user on a DC, certainly not would be a domain user, but it must be a Domain Admin at a minimum!
