We recently restore a active drectory system state to a test machine. We reconfigured to use the new machine p address. Removed any domain controllers using a online script. Configured any settings as we would expect active directory to work
A client machine has IP configuration setup manually and is pointing to domain controller. DNlookup works for the domain. When we try to add a pc to this domain , we recieve the following error
" DNS was successfully queried for the service location (srv) resource for the domain controller of domain "name"
The query was for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.domain.co.uk
The following domain controller was identified
name of domain controller ( remember we cleared out teh meta data for other domain controllers )
Common causes of this error include
HOST A records that map the name of teh domain conrller to its ip addresses are missing or contain incorrect address - (we have changed the host a records manually to teh new ip address )
Domain coltrollers registered in DNS are not connected to teh netowrk and are not running - ( We have removed an instances of all other domain controllers and dns servers. "
Any other thoughts would be greatful
