I am getting the error 4321 NETBT.
The name "DOMAIN   :1d" could not be registered on the Interface with IP address 10.13.81.88. The machine with the IP address 10.13.83.149 did not allow the name to be claimed by this machine.
(where DOMAIN is the domain name)

Both machines are Windows 2003 server

The error is on the Secondary DC (10.13.81.88) refering to the Primary DC (10.13.83.149).

I am getting the error every few minutes.

Any Help Would be appreciated

This is a conflict, have you joined the Sec DC to the domain properly?

-Assuming your Pri DC is also a DNS Server
-Make sure the DNS server IP is set to your PDC's IP on your Sec DC's network interface.
-System Properties->Computer Name->Change->Select DOMAIN, and type in your domain's name
-Hit OK
-Type the PDC's Adminirstrator + Password in
-Hit OK

Should say

"Welcome to the XXX Domain"

Thank you, i cannot attempt this at the moment as the server is in use but i will try today.
Are you sure the DNS ip on the Second DC's NIC should be the PDC's IP. I have it as itself due to it been a DNS server aswell.

Yes, just to join it to the domain first, the set it to itself (127.0.0.1)

Once joined, set your primary DNS forwarder to your ISP's DNS server.

Look for heading: "How to Configure Forwarders"
