Server 2012 - DNS issue - ID 4013
Posted on 2015-01-22
We have a new Windows Server 2012 R2 that we added to a small Windows network that has Windows 2003 and 2008 servers and we made it a DNS server and a GC and everything seemed fine during the procedure.
We are however getting the following Event Warning below. The new server passes the DCDIAG tests and repadmin /showrepl. It only appears after reboots. Any assistance offered solving it would be greatly appreciated.
Event ID 4013:
“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.”
