Determine what might have caused this failure, resolve the problem, and initiate registration of the DNS records by the domain controller. To determine what might have caused this failure, run DCDiag.exe. You can find this program on the Windows Server 2003 installation CD in Support\Tools\support.cab. To learn more about  DCDiag.exe, see Help and Support Center. To initiate registration of the DNS records by  this domain controller, run 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from the command prompt on the domain controller or restart Net Logon service. Nltest.exe is available in the Microsoft Windows  Server Resource Kit CD.

  Or, you can manually add this record to DNS, but it is not recommended.

'125de9a0-ebbb-4d48-92f4-07308a863dc3._msdcs.LightHousera.com
That is the DC-GUID (some people also refer to it as DSA GUID)
Jorge has a good writeup on it here:

Try and restart your netlogon service and see if the record is registered properly.
Thanks

If your DNS server is configured for dynamic update and not just secure update, by restarting the netlogon services, teh record should registered properly. Have you tried to verify that yet?
Aslo, since there are many reasons for event ID 5774, verify if any of these apply to your enviornment:
