DNS-error in set up preventing secondaries from making zone transfers.
Posted on 2004-08-02
I am running windows 2000 server and the company DNS admin sent me a notice saying I have an error in my setup preventing secondaries from making zone transfers. They said they did not have any expertise in windows DNS but thought I should remove my alias. When the server admin set up this process he did not have the alias in the interface and no one could get to the safety site. In the DNS properties menu on this item there are some selections. It is set to Host and Aliases (A and Cname records) as below. If I
change this to just Host do you think that would work and still recognize the alias. I am afraid if I remove the alias record then no one will be able to get to the site. The System log shows Event 5782 "Dynamic registratrion or deregistration of one or more DNS records failed with the following error. No DNS server configured for the local host. The server administrator left the company and I am new to DNS with no other windows 2000 server experts available. Thanks for your help......
