Ive started rolling out 2008 R2 across my sites and thought it was pretty painless but upon checking event logs im not so sure. Is it normal to get a 1202 error from ADWS at every reboot that states
"This computer is now hosting the specified directory instance, but Active Directory Web Services could not service it. Active Directory Web Services will retry this operation periodically.
Directory instance: GC
Directory instance LDAP port: 3268
Directory instance SSL port: 3269"
Followed by events 1006, 1004, 1200 stating all is fine about 20 seconds later after startup. I also get a 4013 DNS warning
The DNS server is waiting for Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to signal that the initial synchronization of the directory has been completed. The DNS server service cannot start until the initial synchronization is complete because critical DNS data might not yet be replicated onto this domain controller. If events in the AD DS event log indicate that there is a problem with DNS name resolution, consider adding the IP address of another DNS server for this domain to the DNS server list in the Internet Protocol properties of this computer. This event will be logged every two minutes until AD DS has signaled that the initial synchronization has successfully completed.
Also followed about 20 seconds later by events 2 and 4 stating all is ok. This happens after every reboot and there is nothing wrong with DNS nor AD, im just wondering if its normal as im getting it on the 3 servers at 3 different sites im trialing. Is everybody else getting these problems ?
