DNS Error

By allan.kendall ·
Hello everyone,

I am having an interesting problem. I am getting the follwoing DNS errors in my events log. Additionally I am seing machines on the network that are no longer physically plugged in. I am not sure if it is related. I also experienced problems when I added a new computer to the domain, although it worked without a problem, you could not see the PC name in the server, as if it was not there.

I would like to get these DNS errors sorted, and so I am looking for a procedure to do so.

The error is as follows:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: DNS
Event Category: None
Event I 6702
Date: 22/01/2009
Time: 15:08:20
User: N/A
Computer: BEVDC01
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.
