SBS2003 problem

By ZClay ·
First let me give a description of my infrastructure. I have an SBS 2003 server as primary, another standard 2003 server which houses SQl, a 2003 terminal server, and a 2000 sync server.

Synopsis: The SBS server has two nics teamed which are in house and another nic which handles the incoming/outgoign traffic. A couple weeks ago the outgoing nic lost its ip address somehow. I set the IP again and DNS which our provider gave me and since doing so I have noticed a slowdown, not just incoming traffic but also internal traffic. Every day I get this in a report "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. "

What am I overlooking?
