Specified value is not supported for the {0} parameter

I receive this error message when I tried to run configuration wizard of SharePoint Server 2010 on a server which is added to X domain but currently the machine is not connected to domain.
Looking into log file I found the following important starters.
Unable to get domain DNS or forest DNS for domain X. ErrorCode=1355

Seems like SharePoint configuration wizard requires to read something from AD.   I am now taking the server to the X Customer to run the configuration wizard.  1 hour drive away.
Will update …
As expected the configuration wizard went without error at the customer network. Smile
