Windows 2000 DNS in Active Directory


M

Matt

Hello,
I have a DNS server running on both of my domain controllers. The DNS
server saves the zone record to files (not active directory). Every
time the domain controller is rebooted (primary or secondary) it totally
removed the domain DNS from DNS.. I have to go back in and add it and
point it to the zone file.

How do I fix this?

Matt,

Just something basic that is not specific to your issue.

Go ahead and install the Support Tools from the Service Pack CD-Media or
download them and install from the MS Web Site. Then, run dcdiag /c /v on
each Domain Controller as well as netdiag /v on each Server ( Domain
Controller, Member Server, etc. ). This will give you an overall picture of
what is going on - in general.

You might want to look at repadmin /showreps /v as well as replmon. Again,
none of these really have anything to do with your specific issue ( well,
most likely not ) but it is good to have an overall picture of how things
are.

Now, to your specific problem.

What happens if you make DNS Dynamic DNS? Have you tried this?
Are there any event ids in the Event Viewer?
Are the files located in the default location?
Have you run a complete virus check and spyware check?

Cary,
There don't seem to be any events in the Event Viewer. The files are
located in the default locations: c:\winnt\system32\dns\

Virus and spyware checks check out clean.

Also.. netdiag /v and dcdiag /c /v show nothing of any problems.
