DNS Server Help Needed

By chriswales ·
We recently upgraded our NT PDC to Windows 2000.
However, we cannot get the DNS going.

NetDiag gives us the following error.
DNS Test...
[Warning] The DNS entries for this DC are not registered correctly on DNS server *192.x.x.x*
[Fatal] No DNS servers have the DNS records for this DC registered.

We have recreated the zone(s)and a tried a few other things.

Does anyone have any suggestions or can anyone recommend a good resource?

Thank you

DNS Server Help Needed

There is a good resource on the web on Windows 2000 DNS the URL is:
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/en-us/default.asp?url=/windows2000/techinfo/reskit/en-us/cnet/cncc_dns_pgpf.asp

I have had similar problems when I did not have a DNS server for the root namespace zone already running prior to doing a dcpromo.
I have had to remove DNS from the DC that I promoted and re-installed and recreated the zone.

The key to all of this is that DNS that supports SRV records mustbe running in order to install Active Directory. The link above is a complete DNS discussion and the requirements.

Did you make sure that you set the zone to allow for Dynamic Updates, And Active-Directory Intergrated?
