add a reverse dns zone for this 127.0.0.1 localhost address

I've given up on root hints a long time ago and use public dns servers i.e.
google public dns 8.8.8.8/8.8.4.4
opendns 208.67.222.222/208.67.220.220

Hi,

Does this server has internet connection. Both forwarders and root hints are not working. Also it has problems with internal dns configuration too.

Please try restarting dns server service and netlogon service. And run the test again.

Hi,
restarting the server and netlogon service didnt' fix the issue. WE will try to add a reverse dns zone for this 127.0.0.1 localhost address

WE tested the roothints servers and forwarders with nslookup and name resolution is fine..It is resolving but the dcdiag shows errors
