Right now my domain has 3 Windows 2008 DC two are physcial servers with teamed NIC and one is a Vmware VM. On my two physical DC's I'm getting the following error message when running dcdiag /c: Please note I have disabled IPV6 ib with adapaters? Why am I getting these AAAA errors messages still? What is the failed to delete _dcdiag test message all about. I do not even see this record listed in DNS. ALso when I run dcdiag /c I'm not getting any DNS errors:

Could this could problem with GP on some Xp workstations???

Commented:
Nope.  Workstations would have nothing to do with this.

AAAA are IPV6 records.  If you're not using IPV6, disable it on the servers' NICS and these messages should go away.

BTW... what is the best way to see if DNS DYnamic updates is really working correctly in my enviorment... Are there any other tools to test the DNS and config of my DNS structure?
Commented:
Testing DNS dynamic updates.  Delete a record, say for a workstation, then reboot the workstation.  If it creates a new record, then it's working.

Slow Group Policy: what do you mean?  What's slow?  Applying it, booting up,something else?

With regard to the IPV6 issue, take a look at the last post on this forum:

Thanks again my quesiton regards the GP has to d with the following:

Right now I use GP to enforce workstation firwall's. All workstations are on the same subnet. I have notice sometime when a workstation starts up not a laptop or anything the firewall will be one the after about 2 - 6 minutes it will disable it's self???

This process works even faster when you run gpupdate /force on the workstation

Commented:
If you still have a question about GP, you should open another question and close this one if your initial issue has been resolved.
