Server 2012 - DNS issue - ID 4013
Posted on 2013-05-28
2012 server, DNS error:
The DNS server is waiting for Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to signal that the initial synchronization of the directory has been completed. The DNS server service cannot start until the initial synchronization is complete because critical DNS data might not yet be replicated onto this domain controller. If events in the AD DS event log indicate that there is a problem with DNS name resolution, consider adding the IP address of another DNS server for this domain to the DNS server list in the Internet Protocol properties of this computer. This event will be logged every two minutes until AD DS has signaled that the initial synchronization has successfully completed.
I believe from my research that this might be caused by this: it appears the old server name (left over from migration?) is called out in the DNS forward lookup and I think that is the issue. Can I just delete all the references to the old server without issue?
