  • DNS Errors after running DCDIAG


    I cannot add any new users to a DC server 2003 -recent change would be that this is cloned server - using a product called Shadow Protect as a DR live test. I can add a new user to the 2k8 box and see it replicate to the 2k3 box immediately using F5 refresh - but get the following error when trying to add any new user: The requested object has a non-unique identifier and cannot be retrieved.

    The original server is still available in its original condition but has been switched off for 2 weeks or so.

    A bit concerned, I started running some diagnostics, one of which was dcdiag for testing DNS and get teh following summary:

    Summary of DNS test results:

    Auth Basc Forw Del Dyn RReg Ext
    __________________________________________________ _______________
    Domain: mydomain.local
    2008 server PASS WARN n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
    2003 server PASS WARN FAIL FAIL WARN WARN n/a

    Anyway, I wont be able to settle until I get to the bottom of this - any help would be appreciated. I feel a learning curve coming on...
