What do you exactly mean by "But AD join is happening successfully"?

If you mean by this that "net ads join" work but "net rpc join" does not, then I'd pretty much say that this is by design. The RPC join is designed to work with NetBIOS only, we're trying resolve the DC name with NetBIOS mechanisms. Only with "net ads join" we're using the DNS methods.

Please re-open this bug if I misunderstood you.
