Hi Experts,

SERVER#1
I installed a Windows 2008 Server, assign a static ip address of:
ip: 192.168.1.111 /24
gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: 192.168.1.111

AND ON THE DNS Server properties forwarders I assign 2 public internet addresses to access the internet:
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.222
This server has access to the internet.


SERVER#2
 I installed a Windows 2008 Server, assign a static ip address of:
ip: 192.168.1.110 /24
gateway: 192.168.1.1
DNS: 192.168.1.111

I am able to ping SERVER#1, connect using REMOTE DESKTOP and access the internet but when I run Active Directory to
EXISTING FOREST
            ADD A DOMAIN CONTROLLER TO AN EXISTING DOMAIN
and go to the next screen I type the name of any domain in the forest as:
Recall.local and enter the credentials of an administrator when I click next I get the next error:
The following error ocurred when dns was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate an Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for domain "Recall.local":

The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

The query was for the record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.Recall.local

Common causes of this error include the following:

The DNS SRV records required to locate a AD DC FOR THE DOMAIN ARE NOT REGISTER IN DNS.  These records are register with a DNS Server automatically when a AD DC is addedto a domain. They are updated by the AD DC at set intervals. This computer is configured to use DNS Servers with the following ip addresses:

192.168.1.111

-One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child zone:

Recall.local
local
-(the root zone)

Do I need to configure something on the DNS settings? I have browse the internet for hours and watching videos on how to install AD Directory and add a second server and found no answer to my problem.

Please advise.

Are the Service Records in DNS?

I found the problem just now. I did not have my FULL COMPUTER NAME with my DNS name.
I had :  "MAIN"  instead of MAIN.Recall.local and only because of this little error I have been several hours trying to find the problem.

Thanks  Leew.
