  • DNS issue

    Hi. I'm new at this sorta stuff so please bear with me.

    I have a dedicated server. I made a WS2003 R2 EE installation, made it into an AD/DC. I have 2 IP's given to me by the hoster, and have 2 DNS IP's also, which i manually configured in the network settings for the LAN.

    I want to install Exchange. Ran dcdiag and fixed a couple of the issues, all fine, now running netdiag I get an error and no idea how to fix it.

    DNS test . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Failed
    [WARNING] The DNS entries for this DC are not registered correctly on DNS se
    rver 'DNS.FIRST.IP.HERE'. Please wait for 30 minutes for DNS server replication.
    [WARNING] The DNS entries for this DC are not registered correctly on DNS se
    rver 'DNS.SECOND.IP.HERE'. Please wait for 30 minutes for DNS server replication.
    [FATAL] No DNS servers have the DNS records for this DC registered.

    Re: DNS issue

    You want all computers that are part of your domain pointing at the DNS server running on the Windows 2003 Server. The 2003 server will resolve names for external sites for you client workstations etc.

    Your server should be using DNS 127.0.0.1.
    Workstations should be using the IP of the Windows 2003 Server as their DNS.

    You could also add your ISP's DNS servers to the "forwarding" tab within DNS on the Windows 2003 Server.

      Re: DNS issue

      thank-you

      well, there will NOT be any other computers joining to the domain.... it will just be this computer that is the AD/DC

      what do I do in this case, and to resolve that netdiag error?

      I have 2 DNS "Preferred servers" entries in the network configuration, and a default gateway added as well as the IP Address and subnet mask.

      I also did what you said anyway however that still didn't work and gave me a timeout_error on 127.0.0.1 when running the netdiag tool. :-/

        Re: DNS issue

        Is the DNS service installed on the server?

        All computers should be pointing to the the DNS server running on the Windows 2003 Server. If you only have the windows 2003 server then it still should be pointing to itself (127.0.0.1). Active Directory needs DNS to function correctly.

        You can use your ISP's as forwarding DNS entries. Example.

          Re: DNS issue

          hmmm ok, im new to this so bear with me.

          DNS IS installed on the server.

          the LAN connection settings has 2 preferred DNS Servers, both are the of the hosters. Instead, are you saying to remove it and only enter 127.0.0.1 there and then in the DNS Zone to add the 2 IP's from the hoster in the forwarders tab?

          I did that (as above) but still get that error, this time for the IP 127.0.0.1. so hard to configure the server due to my limited knowledge!

            Re: DNS issue

            Yep.

            Active Directory needs a local DNS server.

              Re: DNS issue

              ok so did I configure it right? Because netdiag still fails at that point except complaining about 127.0.0.1.

              I did this....

              LAN properties > TCP/IP Properties > Use the following DNS Server addresses: 127.0.0.1

              then in dnsmgmt, right clicked on the computer node > properties > Forwarders tab > and entered the 2 DNS entries which are the hosters DNS servers

              when I run netdiag after this, it still gives me the error:

              DNS test . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Failed
              [WARNING] The DNS entries for this DC are not registered correctly on DNS se

                        Can you post an IPconfig /all from the server?

                            Re: DNS issue

                            Eh? The server is connected directly to the internet?

                            TBH it sounds like you need to start again. This time also I would use a non-routable domain name (sandlerltd.local). Can the server not be put behind a NAT router of some sort?

                            *Edit*

                            I just noticed also that your domain is sandlerltd.co.uk yet the suffix on your NIC is sandler.co.uk. Maybe try correcting the suffix first.

                              yes it is directly connected to the internet. The hoster has given me 2 IP Addresses (as I requested) and they also gave me the DNS Server, subnet mask and gateway details/configuration

                              Once entered, I can access the internet directly.

                              I've changed the suffix as you mentioned (sorry, my mistake on that) and still didn't work. It is a fresh box.... so doing it over wouldn't make sense from what I can see.

                              DNS is installed, as is POP3, Application Server and WINS. no idea where to go now

                              basically im trying to get MS Exchange server 2003 installed and following through the guidlines/installation steps. And it fails at the netdiag portion
