DNS Error

Dear All,

I see in my event viewer a DNS ERROR with this message :"If this DNS server does not have any DS-integrated peers, then this error
should be ignored.

If this DNS server's ActiveDirectory replication partners do not have the correct IP address(es) for this server, they will be unable to replicate with it.

To insure proper replication:
1) Find this server's ActiveDirectory replication partners that run the DNS server.
2) Open DnsManager and connect in turn to each of the replication partners.
3) On each server, check the host (A record) registration for THIS server.
4) Delete any A records that do NOT correspond to IP addresses of this server.
5) If there are no A records for this server, add at least one A record corresponding to an address on this server, that the replication partner can contact. (In other words, if there multiple IP addresses for this DNS server, add at least one that is on the same network as the ActiveDirectory DNS server you are updating.)
6) Note, that is not necessary to update EVERY replication partner. It is only necessary that the records are fixed up on enough replication partners so that every server that replicates with this server will receive (through replication) the new data.
But my system running well, everything is ok. Note that the dns that I use is the same with the ip adress of the server.

Hi PetiteFille, this error can be ignored if you only have one DNS server which does not replicate its primary zone to any other DNS servers or domain controllers.... i.e. if your network only has one domain controller then you don't need to worry about it, as it will not be replicating its primary dns zone out to any secondary DNS servers.

If you do have other DNS servers running secondary zones (copies of the DNS database thats located on your primary domain controller) you need to make sure that changes are being replicated between the two. You can do this by going into the DNS management console and adding a host record for an IP address. Once you've done this, force replication out to your other DNS servers and see if the record propogates through your other servers, if it does, then your ok, if it doesn't, let me know =)
