Default join a domain with external dns server

I set up a Windows 2008 DC Server named "dcserver" in a workgroup which already have DNS (ClearOS 5.x). When I try to join domain "MYCOMPANY", Win7 displays error "error with no description has occurred". So, can anyone instruct me what I should fix?

My netdiag result is
---------------------------------------
>nltest /dsgetdc:MyCompany
DC: \\dcserver
Address: \\192.168.0.200
Dom Guid: 9f51e717-55b0-4aea-99e2-1377f618083f
Dom Name: MYCOMPANY
Forest Name: mycompany.intranet
Dc Site Name: Default-First-Site-Name
Our Site Name: Default-First-Site-Name
Flags: PDC GC DS LDAP KDC TIMESERV WRITABLE DNS_FOREST CLOSE_SITE FULL_SECRET WS
The command completed successfully
---------------------------------------
The DNS records in ClearOS (192.168.0.1) contains following record for ID 192.168.0.200
--------------------------------------------
dcserver.mycompany.Intranet
dcserver
_msdcs.mycompany.Intranet
_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.mycompany.intranet
-------------------------------------------
The user name I used was added into dcserver's AD as domain users. I also have added the name of Win7 machine into AD.
When I enter the forest's name (MYCOMPANY.INTRANET), Windows 7 displays dialog box saying that AD DC of the domain "MYCOMPANY.INTRANET" could not be contacted. Microsoft Website recommends either change DC to primary DNS or delegate the domain (which ClearOS doesn't support).

So, what should be done to enable client machine to contact DC without changing DNS server?

Thank you.
