Problems with DNS and AD
Posted on 2003-03-25
I have set up two win2000 servers.
192.168.0.1 server1 - Master DC
192.168.0.2 server2 - DC
I installed AD on both and DNS on both. When both servers are running together, Active Directory tools take an extremely long time to initialise on Server1, and any operations take an equally long time to run. eg. double clicking on user to view properties. Server2 AD tools seem fine. When I run server1 only, AD tools are fine. If I run both and then shut down server2 then AD tools take a long time to initialise but once initialised work fine until you stop using them for about a minute or so and then it takes a minute or two to come back online.
I thought this might be a problem with DNS. I created the reverse lookup zones on both DNS servers. This made no difference.
I would appreciate any help.
