DNS and LDAP Errors in Netdiag


S

sejinro

Hello,

I ran netdiag and below is the result. The results for DNS and LDAP
worry me. Anything I need to be concerned about? I ran netdiag on the
our PDC. I am running AD with AD DNS. Thanks!

It looks as though you might have an outside DNS server listed in your server's TCP/IP configuration.

This can typically happen if you have multiple network adapters in the server and one of them is for Internet access, and you
(mistakenly) list your ISPs DNS servers there. DNS servers are not adapter-specific.

If you've done that, open that adapter's TCP/IP properteis and just blank out any public DNS servers listed there. You don't even
need to reboot. As long as the other adapter has the private LAN DNS addresses and your inside DNS servers forward or use root hints
to resolve public names, you're fine.

The only DNS servers you can list on any machines in your domain are DNS servers that can answer queries for your domain. Which
invariably means only DNS servers on your LAN. Failure to observe this configuration rule -- especially on a domain controller --
leads to apparent network slowness, login failures, replication problems, etc.

It is possible to see this error from Netdiag and have it mean nothing, but the LDAP error seems to confirm that your server is
querying someplace that doesn't have the domain registrations.

If this isn't your issue, please post back.

Thanks for the reply. I read some other posts and discovered there was
an updated netdiag tool. I downloaded the tool and now the LDAP errors
are gone. However, the DNS fatal error continues to occur. Help is much
appreciated. Below, I also included an ipconfig /all output. Thanks!

Multihomed Domain Controllers are problematic at best, make sure you have
DNS set to listen only on the Main NIC IP. Register this connections
addresses in DNS should only be enabled on the Main NIC. You don't want the
backup NIC registered in DNS as this will cause connection failures.

Can I assume the second DNS address is for another DC?

Run Netdiag /fix
-and-
DCdiag /fix

The backup nic is for our nightly backup. The backup uses the secondary
nic as it is on a faster gigabit lan. Where would I find documentation
on how to register only the primary nic in DNS?
