Modifying Weight and Priority Creating Duplicate Records
Posted on 2015-01-09
Problem with DNS this time:
5 domain controllers -
I have stopped inbound and outbound replication on all servers except DC1 using the following commands:
repadmin /options <DC NAME> +DISABLE_OUTBOUND_REPL
repadmin /options <DC NAME> +DISABLE_INBOUND_REPL
On DC1 the inbound replication was also stopped using : repadmin /options DC1 +DISABLE_INBOUND_REPL so that the server can only send OUTBOUND to the other servers.
For the preferred servers, I'm using the Priority =0 and Weight = 100.
For the other secondary servers, I'm using Priority =200 and Weight = 100.
I have modified all the SRV records under the _msdcs.DOMAIN.COM and DOMAIN.COM (kerberos, ldap,kpasswd and others) by changing the Weight and Priority so users will use specific domain controllers for authentication requests.
The problem is that after a few minutes, duplicate SRV records are created using the standard Weight and Priority. So I have two SRV records of the same server, just with different Weight and Priority. (This is causing a problem since the new entries are taking over my customized entries and workstations authenticate with undesired DCs')
I had to re-enable all the inbound and outbound connection once again whilst still facing the same problem.
So the main question stand here: How am I going to stop the creation of automatic DNS entries ?
Will appreciate some comments from who ever experienced such issue
