Warning message after new DNS install

Hi I have just installed a fresh copy of Windows server 2003 and have installed Active Directory. After the install I looked at my DNS event log and see the following message:

The DNS server machine currently has no DNS domain name.  Its DNS name is a single label hostname with no domain

I am confident that my DNS is setup properly because I kept it to the defaults. My DNS name is mycompany.group
any ideas of what the warning message might mean?

This problem is when using AD-integrated DNS-zones and DC has been configured to only use itself as DNS-server creating a catch22-scenario when DNS relies on AD and AD at the same time relies on DNS.
If you can setup another DNS server, follow the MS article
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/825036

if not, you will have to live with it. this only happens when you reboot the machine.

found this for you
"The server is missing its primary DNS suffix. If the server is a member server or a stand alone server, right click on My Computer and choose properties. Click
on the Network Identification tab and click properties. Then click the More button. In the Primary DNS suffix for this computer section, add the DNS suffix. If this
machine is the member of an Active Directory, then the DNS suffix should be the AD domain name.

If this machine is a DC, open regedit. Go to HKLM\SYSTEM\CCS\Service\TCPIP\Parameters. In this key check for a value called "Domain". If it's there, it'll
probably be blank. Open this value and add the AD domain name as the data. Next, check for the "NV Domain" key. Again, this value may be blank. Open it
and add the AD domain name as the data. Reboot the server. If these keys do not exist, then create the keys as string values."

nope it is not blank, it has mycompany.group values for domain and nv domain.
I just restarted the server and I have 1 error a 4015 error
The DNS server has encountered a critical error from the Active Directory. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly. The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "". The event data contains the error.
 
and 4521 warnings and 7062 warnings
Its weird because my server has only been running for like an hour.
