    Hi,

    Any other events logged?
    Can you post an Ipconfig /all?
    also try Dcdiag? Netdiag? in verbose mode for any errors.

      Hi dear,

      Thanks for the reply,can you please let me know what i need to check in the dcdiag and netdiag.

      one more thing i wanna share with you that this DC i am also using in the clients prefered DNS server list so that they can access internet.

      In this DNS server i have forward all the queries to external DNS servers.

      may it be the problem for my error.

      CNAME www.ABC.com.DEF.net
      +------------------------------------------------------+

      The Record is different on DNS server '(X.X.X.X)External DNS IP'.

      +------------------------------------------------------+
      The record on your DC is:
      DNS NAME = fa07161a-d9f6-4f73-8cbd-46814bf8931f._msdcs.ABC.com.
      DNS DATA =
      CNAME domain.ABC.com.

      The record on DNS server (X.X.X.X)External DNS IP is:
      DNS NAME = fa07161a-d9f6-4f73-8cbd-46814bf8931f._msdcs.ABC.com


      the above error i copy from netdiag logs. there are many error like this record error

      please suggest me what to do.

      thanks

        Hi,

        I don't think enabling forwarders in your DNS server would cause such an issue.
        The reason I asked you about the Ipconfig and any other events logged such as Netlogon etc is to narrow this down a bit as there could be a lot of factors that could trigger such an event.
        On the Dcdiag and Netdiag look for any connectivity, replication, rpc etc errors.
        ...Or post them here so we could have a peek.

          Remove your ISP's DNS from your network card settings and put them in the forwarders tab on your DNS server.

          Are your clients using those DNS servers as well???

            Clients using internal DNS server means the DC's DNS server and this DNS server is forwardig the quersies to ISP DNS server.

            Removed the ISP DNS servers from the TCP/IP list ,remove the cache and repair the network card also but still facing the same error in the eventviewer


            Please suggest me wht to do now

              It will work like that but it is so much easier if you set them up in your forwarders tab.

              Have you rebooted the server since you made these changes??? If not then i would do that now.

              Run another netdiag and dcdiag and post the results here.

                    Is your DNS functioning correctly?

                    Have all the relevant SRV records been created?

                    As the other guys have requested, can you post the results of a DCDIAG and NETDIAG
