Unknown DNS error on my web server

By pcmaster ·
I'm running Windows 2000 Server as a webserver. All is fine except for one issue I can't seem to resolve. In my Events Log, System Log, I keep getting the same error and it is continuously generating until the log fills and locks the machine. Theerror is as follows:

Registration of the DNS record '_kpasswd._udp.sogo-online.com. 600 IN SRV 0 100 464 sogomain.sogo-online.com.' failed with the following error:
DNS server unable to interpret format.

The 'source' is NETLOGON.

My Registered name for my website is www.sogo-online.com. My machines name is SOGOMAIN. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

The first thing to do is go in to the properties of the system log and choose to keep overwriting the oldest events so it doesn't lock you up.

Unknown DNS error on my web server

It is Netlogon error # 5774, right? And do you get the error every 70 seconds?
If so, then try this:

Windows 2000-Based Domain Controller Generates a Netlogon Error Event ID 5774 (Q284963)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


SYMPTOMS
On a Windows 2000-based domain controller that has Domain Name System (DNS) installed and integrated with Active Directory to allow secure dynamic updates, you may find that Event Viewer records the Netlogonerror Event ID 5774 approximately every 70 seconds.


CAUSE
This behavior can occur when the DNS server that is authoritative for the Active Directory domain name is not listed on the DNS tab of the Advanced TCP/IP Settings dialog box.
RESOLUTION
To resolve this behavior, add the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the DNS server that is authoritative for the Active Directory domain name to the IP Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties , and then move it to the top of the list:


On the desktop, right-click My Network Places , and then click Properties .


Right-click the appropriate connection object, and then click Properties .


Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) , and then click Properties .


Click Advanced .Click DNS .


Click Add , type the IP address of the DNS server in the DNS server box, and then click Add .


Click the arrows to move the IP address of the Active Directory DNS server to the top of the list.


Click OK in the open dialog boxes to close them and save the new settings.


Stop and then restart the Netlogon Service. The Event ID 5774 error messages should no longer occur.

Hope this helps.
