  • Active Directory and DNS

    Hello, Everyone

    I have installed W2K3 server on one of my computers and I'm getting an error (see below) when I run the DC. The computers are connected to a linksys router.

    Diagnostic Failed

    Warning: Domian Contreller funcitions like joining a domain, logging onto a domain, and Active Directory replication will not be available until the DNS infrastructure for Active Directory is correctly configured.

    The Wizard encountered an error while trying to determine if the DNS server with which this domain controller will register supports dynamic updates.

    Details

    The primary DNS server tested was: ns1.dnsexit.com{63.223.76.173}

    The zone was: ABCD.com (No is my real zone just an example)

    The test for dynamic DNS update support returned:
    "DNS bad key."
    (error code 0x00002339 RCODE_BADKEY)

    I don't want to promote it to DC (even knowing that I can) until I can fix it.
    My DNS server is from dnsexit.com (ns1.dnsexit.com and ns2.dnsexit.com) and is dynamic dns and I need to have it to access my computer from work thru my 2 internet domain names.
    How can I setup my server to update the Dynamic DNS?


    Thank You!

        Joner125, with regards to future posts, please start your OWN topic and post it in the most appropriate forum. In this case the Forgot Administrator Password Forum.

        Andrew, could you move this hijack to the Password forum please. Thanks.

          My network consist of 1 server that will have the following roles: Domain Controller, DHCP and DNS, and 3 workstaion. I'm using broadband connection and as you already know is dynamic and they are behind a liknsys router. I have registered two domain names thru "DNSEXIT.COM" with free dynamic "DNS" service. I have already setup the dns from "dnsexit.com" dns server, but I can't make it work from my server computer(see attachment pic DC.jpg). As of the Even, it didn't log anything. So I have decided to create the 'DC' with the error on the 'dns'.

          If you can help me setting up the DNS server using the following dns server: ns1.dnsexit.com and ns2.dnsexit.com, I will preceate it.

          thanks.

          P.S. I don't have much knowledge using windows server O.S. , I have books, ebooks and I have done some research and I still can find the answer.

                Hi boricua.
                Is that DNS server one that you or someone in your organization controls?

                If not you should probably just select "Install and configure the DNS server on this computer..."

                You may want to read this to get a better grasp of why you even need DNS

                Hope this helps.

                  Are you using NAT?
                  If so I think what you need to do is see if you can configure your Linksys router to dynamically update your DNS record with your external NS.
                  Also, to get AD to function properly you'll need to install DNS on the DC.
