Are you adding the client to the domain from the server? That is the way you really want to do it, or you may not have access to all of the resources that you need.

You didn't mention what version of W7 are you trying to get joined. Only Pro, Enterprise and Ultimate can join a domain.

Can you ping the server at all?
