Im trying to get an active directory domain working on my home network, but my server "ChazServer" can be seen but not my domain "Charcoal.local". The server is connected to a secondary router in bridged mode. (attached is a diagram thing for easier understanding)

 

EDIT - i removed the switch for a direct connection to the second router, still no change.

I'd check that domain controller and problem member are not multi-homed. Check that domain controller and problem member both have the static ip address of DC listed for DNS and no others such as router or public DNS. Check that a route exists between networks and that required ports are open.
