Windows 2012 R2 Server Fails Register RR's to DNS Event ID 8018

Windows 2012 R2 Member server
Windows 2012 R2 DC AD DNS DHCP
Windows 2012 R2 DC AD DNS DHCP

Just added a static IPV6 address to my Windows 2012 R2 DC

When it tries to register to DNs I get this error

The system failed to register host (A or AAAA) resource records (RRs) for network adapter
with settings:

           Adapter Name : {525E4535-4128-42D5-B950-B7C2AB802B44}
           Host Name : SERV013

           Sent update to server : <?>
           IP Address(es) :

The reason the system could not register these RRs was because the DNS server contacted refused the update request. The reasons for this might be (a) you are not allowed to update the specified DNS domain name, or (b) because the DNS server authoritative for this name does not support the DNS dynamic update protocol.

To register the DNS host (A or AAAA) resource records using the specific DNS domain name and IP addresses for this adapter, contact your DNS server or network systems administrator.

I ran  get-dnsserverzone | fl    and the DynamicUpdate  is Secure

I read somewhere this

DNS Server may have been busy placing a lock on the zone try this

ipconfig /registerdns  

Still event id 8018

In DNS the IPV6 address is not appearing.

I have two Windows 2008 Servers and added a static IPV6 address to them also and they registered to DNS

I can ping -6 serv011  as an example which is one of the DC's no problem I get back the IPV6 address

Just this one Windows 2012 Server is not registering

Why are you pushing IPv6 Ips for DNS servers?
The issue might be (likely) the attempt to update goes to Ipv6 address and fails.
limit the DNS to Ipv4 addresses only and see if that resolves the issue.
Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:

All other servers added to DNS just this one fails to do so

The reason you add these to DNS is it makes the ping - 6 easier for me ping - 6 serv013 is easier than long IPv6 address

You mean uncheck register to DNS setting on the IPv6 settings on the network adapter?

If your organization has a need to mass-create AD user accounts, watch this video to see how its done without the need for scripting or other unnecessary complexities.

No the question deals with whether your DNS servers are actually are listening for events on the IPv6 IP.

There is no need to remove the register on the IPv6 as that registration request will be sent to the dns server randomly based on the available DNS/name servers.  Check whether the servers that are not having this issue have IPv6 name servers as well.

How do I check that my two DNs Servers are listening for event on IPV6?

I think they are since other servers registered

Yes all servers have IPV6 DNS server entries they are all the same.

Also I need to restart them all soon MS updates came out

Last night we had a power failure and this server in question was power cycled

When it came back up it failed to register with dns with same error above

Thomas GrassiSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:

After applying Windows 2012 R2 updates this weekend the server had the error again but now the ipv6 AAAA record is registered in DNS
