Netdiag DNS test fail

We're having some weird DNS issues, so I pulled up netdiag (among other things) to try and track them down.

DNS test from netdiag fails, with the following:

DNS test . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Failed
      Interface {EF3BA5FD-E0EE-422C-859D-BC050A19DD92}
        DNS Domain: domain.com
        DNS Servers: 192.168.xxx.xxx 192.168.xxx.xxx
        IP Address: 192.168.xxx.xxx
        Expected registration with PDN (primary DNS domain name):
          Hostname: computername.domain.COM.
          Authoritative zone: domain.COM.
          Primary DNS server: DCname.domain.COM 192.168.xxx.xxx
          Authoritative NS: [lots of name server IPs]
      Verify DNS registration:
        Name: computername.domain.COM
        Unable to allocate memory, exit verify

I haven't been at all able to find anything on "Unable to allocate memory" anywhere.  What does that mean?

If you installed the Support Tools just recently for the test, using the W2k installation CD, then this might be the cause. Some of the tools got updated with the Service Packs, so if you installed W2k at some point, installed the Service Packs, and only now added the original Support Tools, some strange behaviour might result.
The current version tools for SP4 are here:

Nope, the support tools were installed before SP4.  I installed netdiag just today, downloaded from MS at http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/tools/existing/netdiag-o.asp

The .msi file in this installation is from 2001; this is outdated. I'd recommend to uninstall this netdiag version, and re-install the Support Tools from above. The latest netdiag.exe is from 2003.
