  • DNS entry for Sharepoint 2010 central administration can' be created

    Hello all,
    I realized now that I put myself up a creak by renaming the server on which Sharepoint was installed which is also a domain controller. After renaming it, and then running dcpromo again to promote the domain, I now need to create a DNS record pointing to the main central administration panel since the new name didn't get associated with it. I tried to create one under my domain name, and i was sent back the following error: "Host could not be created. Node could not be created." Then doing that, do I have to create a new zone first? Is that way I was unable to associate the DNS entry? Thanks. And I did it as a type A. Was this correct? Thanks for the hand, guys. (I'm quite new to DNS, but I'm even newer to domain controllers and Sharepoint 2010).

    Do you know the port number used for Central Administration? You could try via the IP address. For example, https://192.168.0.1:1234

    If you want to associate a new name with it, you can look at setting up a host header. If you open up IIS and then select the site hosting Central Administration and look for a link on the right called Host headers.

      I did, but now I can't remember it for it basically went out of existence once the domain controller was demoted and then repromoted. I was also trying to use a DNS entry because that's what Microsoft would have told me to do. And not to mention, I want to be able to access it by name rather than IP address from a different computer.

        If you review IIS, you should be able to locate the port number via the web site created for central administration's web application.

        Have you got a shortcut still pointing to Central Administration? Does that reference a port number?

          I'll definitely review that. I know for sure that I still have the shortcut for it, but right now, it only leads to a HTTP404 error.

            Does the Internet page that opens not reference a URL?

              I'll tell you that I reinstalled Sharepoint yesterday, and it went well till I opened the central administration URL. It gave me a 500.19 error, and I have no idea why. I'm waiting for Microsoft's input on that. I no longer think it's a DNS issue or at least not yet anymore.
