We have a Windows 2008 DC and another Windows 2003 DC on our domain. Earlier today the Windows 2008 server stopped allowing clients to browse to it, whether it be by using the \\servername\share or by trying to open up a Network drive. When we tried to do this we kept getting a message saying:
\\servername is inaccessible. You might not have permisson to use this resource.
Logon Failure: The Target Account name is incorrect
We checked on the Windows 2008 DC and there were very little errors to give us much of a clue apart from the 5774 NETLOGON System error below:
The dynamic registration of the DNS record '_ldap._tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.DomainDnsZones.ourdomain.local. 600 IN SRV 0 100 389 servername.ourdomain.local.' failed on the following DNS server:
DNS server IP address: ::
Returned Response Code (RCODE): 0
Returned Status Code: 0
For computers and users to locate this domain controller, this record must be registered in DNS.
Determine what might have caused this failure, resolve the problem, and initiate registration of the DNS records by the domain controller. To determine what might have caused this failure, run DCDiag.exe. To learn more about DCDiag.exe, see Help and Support Center. To initiate registration of the DNS records by this domain controller, run 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from the command prompt on the domain controller or restart Net Logon service.
Or, you can manually add this record to DNS, but it is not recommended.
Error Value: Bad DNS packet.
We tried running the commands listed there but it didn't work and we have deleted all old DNS records for an old DNS server which has now been removed but clients still cannot connect to their fileshares etc.
Can anyone offer any advice about how to fix this please ?
Many thanks in advance
