DNS Netlogon Error 5774

Long story short.  We had a 2000 server running AD.. we migrated to 2003 and it was not easy.  (for me anyway)  So we are now on a 2003 server and I am getting the following error.

The dynamic registration of the DNS record '1dc968f2-09c6-4d53-b1f9-f974b82edb3f._msdcs.MYDOMAIN.com. 600 IN CNAME MYSERVER.MYDOMAIN.com.' failed on the following DNS server:  

DNS server IP address: XXX.XXX.XXX.71
Returned Response Code (RCODE): 5
Returned Status Code: 9017  

For computers and users to locate this domain controller, this record must be registered in DNS.  

Here is the odd thing.. The IP that is showing as the DNS server IP, XXX.XXX.XXX.71, was in the system and one time and was removed as it was incorrect.  The new IP is XXX.XXX.XXX.10.

Hi wtrdog,

make sure there is no conflicting records for all your host files, recreate the troublesome ones and see if it makes any difference

:) you need to open up your DNS management console

under your forward lookup zone (in the left hand panel) you will see a whole list of host records, one for each computer in your domain. A hot record contains a name and IP so if you have a host record with the wrong IP or Name, then you get conflicting results. you can delete them and recreate by right clicking and create new record

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ok.. went to  the DNS Console.  Clicked on the plus beside the server name, clicked on the plus beside Forward Lookup Zones, then clicked on the domain name.  A whole list of info came up on the right.  The server shows up at the bottom as

Myserver      Host(A) XXX.XXX.XXX.10
 
which is the correct IP.

and there is no other server records in there that are conflicting, check your reverse lookup zone as well

Ok.. Looked at Reverse Lookup Zones and it shows the following
Reverse lookup zone
      XXX.XXX.XXX.X Subnet

Server is the last entry again with the correct IP address

Not in Registry.. although I did find this error in there..

The DNS server was unable to open zone mydomain.local in the Active Directory from the application directory partition DomainDnsZones.mydomain.local. This DNS server is configured to obtain and use information from the directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and reload the zone. The event data is the error code.

This was the previous domain name before we had to rename it to support migrating from the old server.

ahh i see, can you still see that old zone under your dns server? if yes then get rid of it

we may need to rebuild your dns zones - much easier than it sounds :)

you are just a single domain now yes?

Yes I did.. and the error is gone.. well the first one anyway.  I am closing this question and giving you the points. I will open a new question for the other half as it is only fair since you fixed the original problem.
