ROOT A DNS Error in Windows 2003

Hi,

We have 1 Domain controller and 2 backup domain controller.
When I ran DCDiag /test:DNS /v /f:newdcdiag.log

I get below error and I get this on All Domain Controllers.

There was a Domain Controller name pw.com which was deleted and create new Domain Controller pdc.com using DCPROMO and then added backup domain controllers

So pw.com is totally dead and gone?
Try removing it using the steps in this article

sysadminpwAuthor Commented:
previously pw.com was our primary domain controller and with single forest.
then we created new forest with pdc.com and active directory was installed on pdc.com domain controller

sysadminpwAuthor Commented:
and the above link will help only when any domain is there in active directory and same forest.
pw.com was totally different Primary domain controller

Mike KlineCommented:
Are there any records or is the host  pwsdc.pw.com still listed anywhere in your current DNS server?

sysadminpwAuthor Commented:

Darius GhassemCommented:
Run a ipconfig /registerdns and dcdiag /fix on the DC. Can you post a ipconfig /all. The Root servers errors are common and can be ignored if you are using DNS forwarding.

The error states that you're having a delegation of _mcdcs.pdc.com targetting pwsdc.pw.com.
Delete the _mcdcs delegation in pdc.com domain.

Go,into your TCP/IP properties click advance then the DNS tab uncheck register this connection with DNS. Also, take a screen shot of your DNS zones and post.

Hi dariusg,

should I have to do above setting for all domain controllers
0
 
sysadminpwAuthor Commented:
thanks henjoh09

I deleted old entry of pwsdc.pw.com from name server


I made the zone has Dynamic Updates or Only secure option selected

Stop the netlogon and the DNS service (at cmd prompt type net stop netlogon and net stop dns)

Go to %systemroot%\system32\config folder and then delete the netlogon.dns and netlogon.dnb files

Restart DNS and netlogon

Run netdiag /fix


and problem in fixed

Thanks for all ur support

You want to do this for any DC that has multiple NICs.

Darius GhassemCommented:
The reason the repair works is that it clear's their cache. Make sure that you have cleared the cache for the server. Can you do a ipconfig /all for the client you had above.

Henrik JohanssonSystems engineerCommented:
As author has stated twice that the problem in original question (delegation problem) has been resolved, the question should be closed and the offtopic problem posted as new question.
Use related question feature or post a link to the new question if we shall follow into that thread, but the additional problem that darius tries to solve isn't related to the original question/problem in this thread.
0
 
Henrik JohanssonSystems engineerCommented:
The problem in question is a DNS delegation issue.
Except of a minor typo in http:#24121607 (shall be _msdcs instead of _mcdcs), my opinion is that my comment should be accepted as single solution.

The other comments in the suggested split will not fix the delegation problem.
