Hi,

I've running the new AD BPA Tool on my Windows Server 2008 R2 box and receiving about 20 errors relating to DNS.....even though DNS seems to be functioning perfectly internally

I've attahced a screen shot of the first error, can provide more if nessesary

These erorrs might be nothng to worry about asour domain/environemtn is working normally, but just a bit concerned about these BPA erorrs

Any help would be gretly appreciated

Thanks

Mike

Check this out.

Make sure you don't have a firewall blocking this.

I would run on your forest root DC.

Yeah I read through that document and Disabled the Firewall on this server.....but has had no effect

Also the DirectoryServices_EngineReport.xml hasn't been any help in determinign why all these 20 elements of the BPA seem to fail....

Are you runn this on a DC? Have you tried running on another DC?

Run dcdiag look for errors.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If I run DCDIAG /TEST:DNS on the DC inquestion if fails on the Delegation Test, but it's strange as it's referencing a really old DC which taken out of service a long time ago....


     TEST: Delegations (Del)
        Error: DNS server: castle.mos.local. IP:<Unavailable>
        [Missing glue A record]

I can't find any records of that old server (CASTLE) anywhere in DNS, AD Sites & Services, ADSI Edit etc!

If I run the same DCDIAG /TEST:DNS from another server if completes without any errors?!

Check to make sure that there are no SRV records.

I've been through DNS and removed any references to this old server (there were a few entires under the Reverse Lookup Zones)

Metadatacleanup (NTDSUTIIL) doesn't list this old server!

Did you go through the msdcs.domain.com zone?
