Several DNS related errors on Win2003 adv server
Posted on 2004-11-19
I've got a Win2003 adv server running at home for self study and certification tests. I'm getting 3 error messages
The DNS server has encountered a critical error from the Active Directory. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly.
The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "". The event data contains the error.
The DNS server was unable to complete directory service enumeration of zone _msdcs.jackmovers.net.
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 extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "". The event data contains the error.
The DNS server has completed a scavenging cycle but no nodes were visited. Possible causes of this condition include:
1) No zones are configured for scavenging by this server.
2) A scavenging cycle was performed within the last 60 minutes.
3) An error occurred during scavenging.
The next scavenging cycle is scheduled to run in 24 hours.
The event data will contain the error code if there was an error during the scavenging cycle.
Currently Active Directory is working fine, i can load it from the MMC and login, and all the shares are working fine. The DNS records still work and basic DNS health test came back fine using DNSLINT from the cmd line. What else should I check? are there other dns or active directory tools i should use for health checks?
