Recently our dns server decided to malfunction!
luckily we have a child domain off site that is able to serves dns requests
through Routing and Remote Access but this is not a permanent solution because Active
Directory sites and services fails generate anything when asked to check Replication Topology .
These two errors appear continuously
The DNS server was unable to complete directory service enumeration of zone .. This DNS server is configured to use information obtained from Active Directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and repeat enumeration of the zone. The event data contains the error.
The DNS server has encountered a critical error from the Active Directory. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly. The event data contains the error.
and when i run NSLOOKUP I receive the following:
DNS request timed out.
timeout was 2 seconds.
*** Can't find server name for address 192.168.0.4: Timed out
Default Server: richardsbaai.rbay.armature.co.za
help would help allot I'm losing sleep over this
