First off I am green when it comes to domain stuff in a windows enviroment.
Here it goes;
I have a network installation I am working on. There will be six 2003 Standard servers, one at head office and the remaining being in remote branches with VPN access. For the time being I am working on the first of the branch server.
Primary server is up and running with no problems, added second server and joined the AD. I think that is all working as the Active directing is syncing.
The problem is when the server was connected to the PDC the DNS was pointing to the pdc's dns. When I now set the Branch server to use its own DNS I get many errors.
Event Type: Error
Event Source: DNS
Event Category: None
Event ID: 4015
Time: 12:25:48 PM
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 "000021A2: SvcErr: DSID-030A09F3, problem 5001 (BUSY), data 0". The event data contains the error.

I cannot do a NSlookup using the branch serve but the Main Server works fine.
I get a ****Cannot find a server name for address......
So in short The DNS is all screwed up on the second server. It may be in the Active Directory for Sites and Services.
I hope somebody can help.
