  • DNS / Active Directory Errors - Please Help!

    I am receiving the following 3 errors in my DNS Event Viewer:


    ------
    DNS server has updated its own host (A) records. In order to ensure that its DS-integrated peer DNS servers are able to replicate with this server, an attempt was made to update them with the new records through dynamic update. An error was encountered during this update, the record data is the error code.

    If this DNS server does not have any DS-integrated peers, then this error
    should be ignored.

    If this DNS server's Active Directory replication partners do not have the correct IP address(es) for this server, they will be unable to replicate with it.

    To ensure proper replication:
    1) Find this server's Active Directory replication partners that run the DNS server.
    2) Open DnsManager and connect in turn to each of the replication partners.
    3) On each server, check the host (A record) registration for THIS server.
    4) Delete any A records that do NOT correspond to IP addresses of this server.
    5) If there are no A records for this server, add at least one A record corresponding to an address on this server, that the replication partner can contact. (In other words, if there multiple IP addresses for this DNS server, add at least one that is on the same network as the Active Directory DNS server you are updating.)
    6) Note, that is not necessary to update EVERY replication partner. It is only necessary that the records are fixed up on enough replication partners so that every server that replicates with this server will receive (through replication) the new data.

    -------------
    The DNS server has encountered a critical error from the Active Directory. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly. The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "". The event data contains the error.

    -------------
    The DNS server was unable to complete directory service enumeration of zone corp.yodock.com. This DNS server is configured to use information obtained from Active Directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and repeat enumeration of the zone. The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "". The event data contains the error.
    -------------
    There are no replication partners. The server can ping external URL's and external computers can ping the server. There are no duplicate computers listed in Active Directory. When users in the office connected to the server attempt to synchronize their offline files, they get an error message that the domain controller cannot be reached.

    I'm ready to pull my hair out here - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Can you try a DCdiag and post the results?
