Things i verified

  1. I am connected to VPN
  2. I rebooted and left it alone on VPN for sometime
  3. i am able to ping my Active Directory Domain and Forest as mentioned in the following screenshot when i am on VPN. and it's ping the IP it should be pinging which is my AD

Unbind from AD and then binding to AD fixed my issue

Few Pointers

  1. Bind & Unbind from Directory Utility not from the Users Group > Network Account Server > Edit
  2. It's the same screenshot as shown above in the question
  3. We also updated the Prfer this Domain Server to a new server instead of domain.com it was a specific server name
