I am getting a Jrnl_wrap_error on our DC that contains all the fsmo roles.   This DC is Server 2003 std SP2.  Can this also cause DNS issues?  

What's the best way to fix this Jrnl_wrap_error?  I am looing it up and have found the following here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_23440305.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+10+30+error+jrnl+wrap

but any more input is greatly appreciated!

We are running donimo 7.02 clustered on two win 2K3 R2 SP2 servers.

Our lotus mail router is not delivering any mail and i wonder if it is related to the Jrnl_wrap_error and/or dns.  Thanks very much for all help the situation is getting critical!

No it would not cause DNS issues.  However, DNS issues could have caused the jrml_wrap_error.
You should be able to fix by following the article you mentioned.

DNS can cause this like Tech said. Make sure you have your DCs only pointing to other internal DNS servers. Run dcdiag to check for errors.

Run dcdiag /test:dns to check for DNS errors.

also, 7.0.2 is becoming a bit long in the tooth.  Domino 8.5.1 has significant performance boosts over 7.0.2 (make sure you update it to Fix Pack 4, just out) or wait till august 24th, 8.5.2 will be out.

Have you checked MailBox database on your Domino server? Any hung/dead mail inside?

Yes we checked the mailbox and we did have alot of dead mail.  Since we have found a few dns issues:

1) both servers with domino were pointing to a dns server that had recently been taken down, this was corrected.

2) 2 of our dns servers were pointing to forwarders that no longer existed.  I removed the dead servers and put in existing local dns servers plus the DNS servers of our ISP--should I have done this?  (in DNSmgt, right click servername-->properties-->forwarders tab)

The mail seems to be getting out now.  Please let me know if I need to leave the external DNS servers for our isp under the forwarders tab.

Thanks again,

Maureen

Yes you need to keep the forwarders in DNS to point to your ISP or well known DNS servers.

"Yes you need to keep the forwarders in DNS to point to your ISP or well known DNS servers."

ISP only or ISP and local DCs?  Right now I have both with the loca DCs at the top of the list in the forwarder tab.

Also, should the ISP DNS servers be in the tcp/ip DNS settings of each DC's NIC?

No, you should only have ISP forwarders in your DNS server.

No ISP should not be in the TCP\IP settings.

Can having the isp in the tcp/ip settings cause problems?

Yes!  Active Directory is HEAVILY dependent on DNS.  You must put in your AD DNS servers in tcp/ip properties for all servers and workstations.  However, you would add your ISP DNS servers as forwarding servers in DNS.

Yes, because ISP DNS server do not know your internal domain. ISP DNS servers are external DNS servers and your domain servers are internal DNS servers which take care of your internal DNS requets.
