    does the file C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\netlogon.dns exist?
    To which DNS server is you're nic pointing too (of the dc)

      Dear,

      The file exists in the specified path and the DNS is AD integrated.

        1. netlogon.dns contain AD entries to register in DNS zone,
        check if entries from file appear in DNS

        2. compare permissions on config folder is it equal to the permissions on other DC?

        3. check SYSTEM log for the dns register errors

        In a case that server registered in DNS and doesn't alert about dns errors in event log you can ignore failed test
