Error: Remote Desktop can’t find the computer “FQDN”.  This might mean that “FQDN” does not belong to the specified network. Verify the computer name and domain that you are trying to connect to.

Solution:  This could be as a result of many reasons. Here are some possible fix

  • First, the right computer-name wasn’t used
  • If this fails then the error is DNS related (that is the name you are trying to use is not resolvable)

To troubleshoot this, use the nslookup and ping utility to investigate further. Based on your findings, apply a fix 😉
