Am am getting a ton of informational entries and warnings in the DNS log which is filling it up every couple of days generating an Eventlog Service message stating, "The DNS server log is full". The messages in the log are as follows:
Warning: The DNS server has encountered numerous run-time events. To determine the initial cause of these run-time events, examine the DNS server event log entries that precede this event. To prevent the DNS server from filling the event log too quickly, subsequent events with Event IDs higher than 3000 will be suppressed until events are no longer being generated at a high rate.
Information: The DNS server encountered an invalid domain name in a packet from 22.214.171.124. The packet will be rejected. The event data contains the DNS packet.
The warnings occur a couple times per hour and the information alerts occur every couple seconds. Sometimes multiple times during the same second.
