DNS Server Error 4007

The following two errors occur back to back on our 2003 Server.

"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."


"The DNS server was unable to open zone _msdcs.mydomain.local in the Active Directory from the application directory partition ForestDnsZones.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."

When the server was originally installed the domain was going to be mydomain.local.  This was changed when there were some issues while trying to transfer the FSMO roles from the existing 2000 Server.  We renamed the new server to mydomain.com and these errors show up in the DNS Server Event Viewer under ID 4007

Hi wtrdog,

just to check, when you recreated the zones, did you create them with the now correct domain name?

Hey again.. Yes I did..
Just to be straight.. all I deleted was the Forward and the Reverse Zones and readded those to correct the other problem.

Jay_Jay70Commented:
basically that error is DNS starting before DNS is ready.... your IP settings, do they point to yourself for primary DNS?
0
 
wtrdogAuthor Commented:
Yes and there is only one entry in there for DNS and it is pointing at itself.

Jay_Jay70Commented:

wtrdogAuthor Commented:
Fixed..

Went digging through the Registry and found two instances of the domain it was referring to..

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\DNSServer\Zones

There were two additional entries other than the one domain that I am now on. I deleted both of the .local that the error was talking about and it rebooted just fine with no errors.

Please repost this so I can award then close so there will be a solution posted.
