How do I recreate missing SRV records


J

Jeremiah

Hello,

I have set up my Windows 2000 Server, SERVERA which is a
DC for DOMAINA, and everything is working fine except for
the DNS and/or the SRV records for DOMAINA.

I believe that I messed up when I installed Active
directory onto this machine originally. I believe I
pointed SERVERA to another DNS server, SERVERB in DOMAINB,
and it created all of the DNS SRV records on the other,
non-related server in the other domain. I have already
deleted the domain of DOMAINA from DOMAINB's DNS server,
so my SRV records are completely lost.

I am now unable to uninstall Active Directory from SERVERA
from DOMAINA DCs because DOMAINA's SRV records are not
located on DOMAINA's DNS server like they should be.

I would like to recreate the correct SRV records on
DOMAINA's DNS server so I can install Exchange/etc. that
requires those SRV records.

Has anybody ran into this before and can someone help?
I'm going insane because I can't find the documentation on
how to do this.

Thanks in advance,

This may be a simple fix. Create a forward lookup zone for its domain name
set it to allow dynamic updates, point the DC to it, restart the Netlogon
service, run ipconfig /flushdns and ipconfig /registerdns.

If this does not seem to work, post back with your ipconfig /all and the
actual domain name from ADU&C so that we can properly diagnose the problem.

I tried your suggestion and I didn't receive any errors,
but it didn't seem to create my SRV records.

I have verified the Domain name in ADU&C and it
is "EASICORP".

One more thing I think is important is the fact that under
my forward lookup zone, there are none of these folders
and subfolders listed directly under my EASICORP Lookup
zone(does this matter?):

_msdcs
_sites
_tcp
_udp

I have included my ipconfig /all results below. Does this
information help?

Yes, this helps very much, EASICORP is a single label domain name which
causes registration failures on Win2kSP4, Win XP, and Win2k3. You will need
to make the registry entries from this KB to all domain members in the
aforementioned clients and servers.
