DNS Server unable to interpret format

By Mr. Malaprop ·
I am in a hybrid NT/2000 network. Currently, things are working OK except I am receiving an error on my 2000 server - event source NETLOGON, and description of "Registration of the DNS record '[our domain] 600 IN A 10.1.1.25' failed with the following error: DNS server unable to interpret format."

Some of the details change (we receive a lot of these errors, to the point where I need to clear the event log nightly), referring to Default-First-Site-Name._sites.[domain], but the final messageis always the same - unable to interpret format.

Any ideas?

I had already checked there - all it tells me is that DNS is probably configured improperly ... not much help. The server that is returning the errors is the server that has DNS installed and configured on it, so it seems like it is trying to send a DNS record to itself and then returning the error back to itself ... weird ... any other ideas?

If you double check the record definitions in your DNS and everything seems to be ok, just setup another dns server into another hardware (3 minutes) perform the same definition and see what happens. if it works, (use nslookup to check) dup the database and move it to the new dns (5 minutes)
Change dns ip adress into yout dhcp scope (2 minutes)
You are ready!!
