Windows Server 2012 - DNS/AD Sync Issue

Heyas,

I tried restarting this server in question, no fix how do resolve this warning?

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.

Please bear in mind I am a complete Noob when it comes to Windows Server 2012.

Thank you.

Is this a new Domain setup or are you joining an existing domain?

If its the only Domain Controller, check the IP settings and make sure the it has itself as the Primary DNS, if its an additional domain controler type in the IP address of the Main Domain controller.

You can check/change the IP configuration by doing the following:
-- Open the control panel.
-- Switch your view to small or large icons.
-- Open Network and Sharing.
-- Select Change Adapter Settings.
-- Right Click the adapter and select Properties.
-- Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and Select Properties.

Your Preferred DNS server should be 127.0.0.1 or the system's IP address.
