Domain controller DNS listing

Posted on 2007-10-18
Last Modified: 2010-05-18
I added a second Server 2003 domain controller to my network.

When I ran DCPROMO I forgot to assign a static IP to the box so now there an incorrect listing in DNS for this server to the old DHCP address.

When I run DCDIAG I get this error, how do I fix it?

 Testing server: Default-First-Site-Name\PDC-servername
      Starting test: Connectivity
         Although the Guid DNS name
         (8569de5c-8840-4255-bd34-4a89a03ba79a._msdcs.obc.local) resolved to
         the IP address (**the DHCP address**, which could not be pinged, the server
         name (pdc-obc.obcnw.local) resolved to the IP address (**the static IP**
         and could be pinged.  Check that the IP address is registered
         correctly with the DNS server.
         ......................... PDC-OBC failed test Connectivity

    Yeah I though about that.

    Only I can not find where it is listed as this: 8569de5c-8840-4255-bd34-4a89a03ba79a._msdcs.obc.local pointed to an IP address.

    I can find this: 8569de5c-8840-4255-bd34-4a89a03ba79a._msdcs.obc.local alias pointed to it's real name: pdc-obc.obcnw.local, the DNS listing for pdc-obc.obcnw.local
