DNS Glue record

By dennisbv ·
I have been recieving some replication error between my main DC and a new on in a different domain. the main DC is in our first domain and the new DC is a new domain in the same forest.
I ran the program dnslint on my main DC and the error is Glue (A) records are missing for the following CNAME records: pinky.meelab.com

I cannot find how I can repair this?

humm "glue records" are like permanent DNS records e.g. when you have a public IP address that does not change and set the TTL for those records as a semi indefinite period of time. Basically saying to name servers "this is the IP address for this domain name and it's never going to change" so you can stop asking if it's changed".

Maybe this Technet article will help:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=321046
It states:
"DNSLint tries to discover other DNS servers that are authoritative for the root of Active Directory forest as it processes the DNS queries. After DNSLint has found DNS servers that are authoritative for the root of Active Directory forest, it queries the DNS server (or servers) for the CNAME records that it finds in the Active Directory. As it resolves each CNAME record to an alias, DNSLint also tries to resolve the glue (A) record for each alias. As mentioned earlier in this article, these DNS records are required for Active Directory replication."

This is a perfect question for the "Ask Dr. Bob" column in Windows & .NET Magazine.

hi there

try to look at your host file if there is something odd in it looks like its likely there the error hides.
