Error 5774: DNS server not authoritative for zone

Hiya,

I hope maybe someone could clear something up for me. We
have just done an NT4 to W2K PDC upgrade but we can't get
another DC working as it doesn't recognise an AD anywhere
in the network.

I'm just wondering though, our PDC has renamed itself to
<name>.<domain>.co.uk instead of naming itself
<name>.local.<domain>.co.uk. The rest of the network has
been successfully renamed to the latter and consequently
our PDC is on a different domain to the rest of the
network.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot,
Mark

There are a couple of ideas, but I need to see an unedited ipconfig /all AND
the actual domain name from ADU&C.
It is common for NT4 to Win2k upgrades to have a disjointed namespace if the
correct domain suffix is not in the NT4 TCP/IP properties.
Hopefully only your Primary DNS suffix is incorrect, it must match the
domain in ADU&C.

Hi Kevin,

Here's the IPconfig /all:

Windows 2000 IP Configuration



Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : isis
Primary DNS Suffix . . . . . . . : <domain>.co.uk
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid

IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . : <domain>.co.uk

local.<domain>.co.uk

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:



Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
local.<domain>.co.uk
Description . . . . . . . . . . . : 3Com EtherLink
XL 10/100 PCI For Complete PC Management NIC (3C905C-TX)
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-01-02-19-12-

DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No

IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 165.100.1.104

158.43.128.1
158.43.192.1
Primary WINS Server . . . . . . . : 165.100.1.104

When going into the ADU&C, it reports this as
isis.<domain>.co.uk, but just below that it reports the
domain as local.<domain>.co.uk.

If you could help us out of this I'd be very grateful.

Many thanks,
Mark

Mark, you have a couple of problems but the worst is you do have a
disjointed namespace. This must be corrected.
Your AD Domain name is local.<domain>.co.uk but your primary DNS suffix is
<domain>.co.uk you will need to correct the Primary DNS suffix or remove AD
and dcpromo with the correct domain name. I recommend fixing the suffix
which can be done with a script developed by the support team for correcting
the suffix. If you will email me I can help you with this. (Don't forget to
remove the nospam. from my email address.)

The other problem is you have your ISP DNS in your NIC setup remove that,
you must only use your local AD DNS server.
