DNS Delegation Error

Hi Guys,

I'm getting the following error when running diagnostics on my DNS server:
ErrorWe have three 2012 DCs and one 2008 DC.

Everything seems to be running fine with dns. The _msdcs is not greyed out. I've checked for old DC records and deleted them. Has anyone dealt with this issue before and have any troubleshooting steps I can follow?

Thanks!

It is best to post the text versus images.

The error deals with your DNS not including a zone 127.0.0 with one revord 1 IN PTR localhost.

Not clear which rests you are running dcdiag /testDNS

Ipconfig /all | find /I "name"

Does your system have reverse DNS zones for 127.0.0, 10.10.10.


?
Do you have a lan.mydomain.com in mydomain.com that points to NS records who then have a lan.mydomain.com forward zone?

Your comment put me on the right track. There was a "org -- mydomain -- lan" within "lan.mydomain.org". An application we use created a service record there. I deleted the string and re-ran that diag command and all was good. Thanks for your help.
