DCDIAG Fault on SBS2008
Posted on 2010-09-15
I am having problems with the DNS setup of a small SBS2008 installation. THere are around 15 workstations and a single server.
I am having some issues with network connectivity and want to resolve DNS errors I am seeing in the event viewer. Typical (and regularly repeated) errors are:
"Process STORE.EXE (PID=2308). Exchange Active Directory Provider failed to obtain DNS records for forest DC=eurotech,DC=local. DNS Priority and Weight for the Global Catalog servers in this forest will be set to the default values 0 (priority) and 100 (weight). "
Event IDs: 2106, 2105
Also if I run DCDiag I get the following error (have replaced server details etc with generic names)
Doing initial required tests -
Active Directory LDAP Services Check:
The host "long-unique-id._msdcs.domainname.local" could not be resolved to an IP address.
"ServerName" failed test connectivity
I have tried DCIDAG /v /fix but without success, error remains. I have also followed advice in some other similar questions but was unable to resolve it.
There is advice that seems to relate to 2003SBS but I am FAR from a DNS expert and could really do with some hand holding here!
Generally the network seems to function well but we have some applications (like sage) that are running the database files etc from the server and it is these that are crashing etc, I am concerned they are losing connectivity for brief moments because of DNS issues.
Even if not I would like to get rid of these errors
Many thanks in advance.
