SVR Record did not create on 1ST DC's DNS

Hi there,

I am running into a strange problem that the DS's SRV record of 2nd DC
did not get created, or transferred on 1ST DC, situation:

1st DC1 with DNS integrated, dns setting as DNS1= DC1's IP, DNS2= DC1's ip
2nd DC2 with DNS integrated, dns setting as DNS1 = DC2's IP, DNS2=Dc1's ip

What I did when I added DC2:
- Installed Windows 2000 w/SP3
- Installed DNS on this box
- Specified DNS1 = DC2's IP, DNS2 = DC1's IP
- Ran DCPROMO
- DC promotion ran smoothly

What happened after that:
- DC1 can not replicate to DC2 due to the SVR record did not get created
(Ref: Q319202)
- DC2's DNS record has all the information record in its (while compared
with DC1's DNS, the DC1's DNS has not get any updated with the records
created
within DC2's DNS)

how do we fix this problem ? (By Q319202, NOT SOLVING ANY THING YET)

THanks,

JPTH

Try to point your 1st DC primary DNS Server to 2nd DC IP
address.
If still cannot then you need to create the SRV record
manually.

Hi Chai,

Thanks for your inputs.
Yes it's true that we could create the msdtc_ record manually.
I tried to add another DC in the domain without pre-installation of DNS
After that I installed DNS (the configuration automatically created without
my interaction)
on the newly added DC, the msdtc_ records are also created perfectly !!!

I am looking for how to remove the DC2 (this DC2 created without the SVR,
MSDTC record
created in DNS, so DS access is failed whenever the 1ST DC trying to look by
DNS name)

Thanks you all,
JPTH

Change DC2 to point to DC1 IP address for DNS
On DC1 change the Dynamic update from Secure to Yes
Restart the DNS service on DC1
On DC2 run IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS
On DC2 restart the netlogon service
On DC2 run IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS
right click on My Computer and select Properties and make sure that both DC1
and DC2 full computer name includes the DNS domain name.
Check the IP properties on the NIC to ensure the the check box for register
DNS records is checked.
