DNS error

The zone ttpl.com is configured to accept updates but the A record for the primary server in the zone's SOA record is not available on this DNS server. This may indicate a configuration problem. If the address of the primary server for the zone cannot  be resolved DNS clients will be unable to locate a server to accept updates for this zone. This will cause DNS clients to be unable to perform DNS updates.

Any help on that?
I asked a prev qn... but no assistance yet.

At the DNS server with the problem:

At the coomand line type:
IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS
IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS

then, make sure it is listed in the nameservers tab for the forward lookup zone for ttpl.com and restart the DNS Service

Cheers

Make sure in your DNS servers TCP/IP properties that you set the DNS to the local computer's IP address. Then reboot.

The TCP/IP properties in your DNS Server - sounds like you did it. Did it help the error? You will need to reboot or do a ipconfig /flushdns to get it to take effect.
