Hi All,

      I have recently introduced a new Windows 2008 R2 DC in our Windows 2003 Domain Environment. I have a strange issue on adding a host A record on the new W2K8 R2 DC's DNS. Everytime I try to add a record, I would get the following error prompt:

The host record xxxx.mydomain.local cannot be created. Refused

If I look at the DNS event log on the W2K8 DC, it would show the following error event:

Event ID 4015 Source: DNS-Server-Service

The DNS server has encountered a critical error from the Active Directory. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly. The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "0000051B: AtrErr: DSID-030F1F8D, #1:
      0: 0000051B: DSID-030F1F8D, problem 1005 (CONSTRAINT_ATT_TYPE), data 0, Att 20119 (nTSecurityDescriptor)". The event data contains the error.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I can manually add the host record without any issue on the W2K3 DC, and it would replicated correctly to the W2K8 DC. Any idea how can I fix this issue?

Thank you.

I'd say run a dcdiag on both machines and compare the results.  Also a replmon (2008) and repadmin /showrepl (2003).  Verify there's no errors anywhere.

Also what's your functional level?

Hi Ben,

       Dcdiag on both W2K3 and W2K8 R2 dc pass without any error, repadmin /showrepl show success replication on both DC as well. My forest and domain functional level are Windows 2003.

Hmm.. did you move any FSMO roles to the 2008?  Did you run  adprep /forestprep and adprep /domainprep as well?

The issue has been resolved after restarting active directory domain service.
