I am having some backup issues with new clients and I'm trying to
resolve them. On another NG I got some great advice on cleaning up DNS
issues to fix this and it seems to be working. When I ran DCDiag I got
several errors about the DC not being configured. So I flushed the DNS
cache (Ipconfig /flushdns) and ran Netdiag /fix. I got several errors
when I ran NetDiag /Fix like:

DNS test . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Failed
[WARNING] Cannot find a primary authoritative DNS server or
the name '[server].[domainname].com.'. [RCODE_SERVER_FAILURE]
The name '[server].[domainname].com.' may not be
registered in DNS.

There was a whole list of these errors. I tried a quick search on the
internet but didn't come up with much (in english, anyway ;)

Both NetDiag and DCDiag fail with errors. This is an active directory
domain controller (Windows 2000 serverr) and the only DC on the LAN. I
have suspected DNS issues for a while but didn't realize how
integrated DNS was with AD so I'm fishing now to fix these problems
for them.

The controller points to itself as the primary DNS controller and all
the workstations use DHCP and point to this DNS as well.

Any thoughts on how I can diagnose and properly fix these issues?

At this point without exact errors we can only guess.
Can you post for us this info:
1. ipconfig /all from your DC
2. AD domain name from AD Users & Computers.
3. List of zones in DNS Forward Lookup Zones.

Exact error messages in your event log.

On your DNS, the zone name called lanconcepts.com, does that exist,

If so:
1. Are dynamic updates set to at least Yes?
2. Does it contain those 4 service record folders? They look like these:
_sites
_tcp
_udp
_msdcs
3. Is the zone AD Integrated, Primary or a Secondary zone?

What errors are in your Event logs?

1) Dynamic updates are set to YES for both forward and reverse lookup
zones

2) No, those 4 service record folders are NOT in the DNS list for
Forward Lookup Zones

3) Yes, the zone was set up with AD integration

Then Kevin replied below:

If you typed the name of your forward lookup zone correctly your zone is
mis-named you typed:
> Forward Lookup Zones: LAN-Concepts

This zone must be named lanconcepts.com, delete this zone and create a new
zone named lanconcepts.com allow dynamic updates and restart the Netlogon
Service, then run netdiag /fix

Ok, that narrows it down a bit.

Here's a couple more:

1. What is the exact spelling of the AD DNS domain name (as it shows in
ADUC)?
2. What is the exact spelling of the zone name in DNS?

Going back to your original post, you said you previously posted in another
group. What other newsgroup(s) are you posting in? Did you multipost this
post as or was that a different issue. FYI : it's better for everyone,
incliding yourself if you were to crosspost, so when anyone responds, the
response will be seen in all groups you cross posted in.

Good eye Kevin. I didn't catch that in his post.

I originated the post in .networking but I was told I would probably
be better off posting in here so I stopped it there and came here. I
usually don't crosspost (or hold the same conversation in two
different groups...I was told it was bad NG etiquette)

1) lanconcepts.com
2) lan-concepts

That did the trick, Kevin! Thanks! (And thanks to Ace, too!) I really
appreciate the guidance here.

In the future when I set up a NEW server (from scratch) as an AD
controller (most of my clients are smaller...25-100 ws) were can I get
info on correctly setting this up? (Or did you guys just teach me
that? ;) These systems were already there (and ailing) I just want to
make sure I avoid the same mistakes that someone else made.

Well, most folks as well as I, would rather see a crosspost, but not
multipost.

Anway, glad the problem is taken care of!

You can read the Design guidelines and how to setup the infrastructure, but
tell you what, between AD and DNS, just post here and someone will guide you
right along. You can use the books as reference, but as for a quick and
strong guideline on how to, this is the place!

That's a good deal! I'm relieved you were able to get it working.

In addition to Ace's comments and articles posted, I'm not sure how this
happened. Unless you didn't let DCPROMO configure DNS for you, either that
or you deleted the zone DCPROMO created. There are three things that must
match exactly, they are:
1. Primary DNS suffix (on the ipconfig /all)
2. AD DNS domain name (in Active Directory Users & Computers)
3. Forward Lookup zone name (in the local DNS server listed in TCP/IP
properties)

In addition, you _must_ follow this rule: Use only the local DNS server that
hosts the AD Domain's Forward Lookup Zone. _Never_, use your ISP's or any
other external DNS server that does not have the AD DNS zone, IN ANY
POSITION, in TCP/IP properties of any member of an AD Domain. Use your ISP's
DNS _only_ as a forwarder listed on the Forwarders tab of the DNS Server
properties in the DNS management console.

Well, you've certainly proven that!

Thanks again, ALL! Things seem to be zipping along here.
