DNS Problem

Posted on 2006-04-07

The zone 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.

Please provide the following information:
Number of servers currently running DNS
Type of DNS...AD Integrated, Primary Secondary?
Is forwarder set up to ISP's DNS server?
Does DNS work on the server itself?

Open the DNS configuration on your server.
Expand DNS, and <servername>
Expand <yourdomain>
Make sure that
a> your domain has an NS record listed for the server
b> when you expand the SOA record, your name server is correctly listed by FQDN
c> you have at least one (presumably the same server) listed under Name Servers tab.
