Our FSMO domain controller suddnely lost connectivity to the DNS server (it is the DNS server). no reason
teh only error message is this:
"Event Type: Error
Event Source: DNS
Event Category: None
Event ID: 4000
Time: 5:43:38 PM
The DNS server was unable to open Active Directory. This DNS server is configured to obtain and use information from the directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and reload the zone. The event data is the error code.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp
0000: 0000232d "
Every time we try to connect we get "you do not have permissions to connect."
Click on the DNS icon and the DNS server comes up with the red sign with minus in it.
Click on action in the mmc is all greyed out. clicking on the server name gives only the DNS event viewer logs
The error message is:
"The dns server was unable to open Active directory the dns server is contfigured to obtain..." Event ID: 4000
The weird part is that an old Domain controller showed up in the DNS zone.
Not sure what to do next to bring it back online.
I could restore, but the problem will persist...
Using dnscmd I get error_access_denied 5 0x5
I have tried
dnscmd.exe /Config /RpcAuthLevel 0
to not avail.
Any advice would be helpful!
