have and issue, recently configured a 2008 server to be the main dc of a domain from old 2003 dc.  The old dc had everything on it ad, dc, dns.   copied over the fsmo roles sucessfully. checked the new dc server 2008 with dcdiag and shutdown old server to see if I could log into domain without it, this was sucessfull.  when i tested the dns i get this error below:

     Warning:  The AAAA record for this DC was not found

TEST: Dynamic update (Dyn)
Warning: Failed to delete the test record_dcdiag_test_record in zone PetrilloArchitects.Local


Warning: Missing  AAAA record at DNS server Main-Server2008.PetrilloARchitects.local
Warning:Missing AAAA record at DNS server

can anyone figure out what is wrong? and how do I fix it. We are trying to get all tests clear of errors to update our exchange to a new 2010 exchange server.  I have not transitioned the exchange off the old 2003 server as of yet.  The old server is back up and is in the domain.

May I assume the old server does not yield these error when the same tests are run upon it?

This error is related to IPv6 and record registration.  It is nothing to worry about.

If you don't want it to log this error, then disable IPv6 on the server NIC.
