DNS Error

I am running Win2k SP-4 with all updates. DNS, DHCP, WINS, Exchange are enabled.  Volumes are NTFS on RAID5 with hot spare.  Have no errors after a fresh reboot.  After 2 or 3 days I get the following error in the DNS Server log.  Any advice on how to stop this error is appreciated.

The DNS server was unable to complete directory service enumeration of zone powerpcs.com.  This DNS server is configured to use information obtained from Active Directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it.  Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and repeat enumeration of the zone. The event data contains the error (Data is: 0000: 0000232a).

this can be caused if you have a single DC or two DCs and they point to themselves as the first entry in the DNS list in IP properties and the zone is AD Integrated. Reason could be it's has many services running on it (SQL, Exchange?) on it or a slower machine and when the Netlogon service tries to register into the zone at boot time, AD is not quite intialized yet and so you get the error. You can either ignore it  or change the zone to a Primary, or if you have mutliple DCs, change the first entry to the partner and the second to itself.

here are some links that might help u

This is a single DC and the zone is AD integrated.  I do have the TCP/IP properties set to look at this DC as the first (and only) DNS server.  The problem is not at startup.  When I start the server everything starts just fine without errors.  The error I stated earlier shows up about 12 hours later.  Once the error first shows in the DNS server log, it repeats itself every 3 or four minutes and then there are no more entries till I reboot the server and the process starts all over again.

Ummm, by any chance do you have this set up to replicate DNS?
Check how you have that setup.

Sorry, that probably isn't it.

According to Adonis1976, this can happen. Setup a second DC, and try that out.

This issue can be closed.  i received assistance from Casca1 on a file replication problem and it solved this problem too.

Thanks,

If you will accept an answer as the correct one, and also give a grade, that will pretty much resolve the close.
Thanks.
