ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN


D

Darren

Hi, All
I recently performed a test restore of my production DC to dissimilar
hardware for the most part I had no issues. I ran a metadata cleanup to
remove orphan DC's entries since I am just restoring one DC and not all 16
DC's . I deleted all sites since I was only concern with the one site /DC I
am restoring .
I was successfully able to load all fsmo's ,DNS and GC on my restore
server and I was able to join a few computers to my restored Domain/DC.
I then performed some post AD verification tests (DCDiag /v and Netdiag /v
no errors) all seems fine. my fsmo's ,DNS and GC were all online eg
however WHen I run nltest /sc_verify:mydomain.com I get the following error:
I_NetLogonControl failed: Status = 1355 0x54b ERROR_NO_SUCH_DOMAIN..
Any ideas would certainly be appreciated...


Thanks
Darren

Hi, Jorge
Thanks for the Q article however I forgot to mention that I am running
windows 2003 as a result I don't think the Q article would be applicable in
my case...

Thanks

How many domains do you have now?

If you run ntdsutil, list, how many domains do see on AD Db?

Did you tried to rebuild the Dns Structure?

Assuming that you have DNS AD integrated Follow all steps to rebuild Dns
Structure:

* Delete the forward zone and the reverse lookup zone

*go to the %systemroot%\system32\dns - delete any old zone that you may have
there.

*delete the files netlogon.dnb and netlogon.dns from
%systemroot%\system32\config

*create the forward lookup zone and the reverse lookup zone make them AD
integrated, for security purposes make sure that the zones only accept
secure only - updates.

*restart the netlogon service, confirm the creation of the files
netlogon.dnb and netlogon.dns on %systemroot%\system32\config

*run ipconfig /registerdns

*run netdiag /fix

Yes , DNS is AD Intergrated ..
If I do implement the following steps below would I loose all registered
computernames in DNS . Assuming this procedure would create a DNS in AD and
all computers will register in DNS again ? correct..??
