Hi all,

I am running dnslint unitlity from my DC1 and received error such as
CNAME record for and AD forest GUID was missing from a DNS server. DC2
was used for redundancy.

Below is the DNSLink report:

*********************************************************************
Root of Active Directory Forest:

ABCdomain

Active Directory Forest Replication GUIDs Found:

DC: SERIAL-PDC
GUID: 3cd2ef74-4b24-46eb-a873-a35035fe8300

DC: SERIAL-BACKUP
GUID: dcfbcff5-31f6-49b2-bba2-858b859829c4

Total GUIDs found: 2
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The following 1 DNS servers were checked for records related to AD
forest replication:

**DNS server: serial-pdc.ABCdomain
IP Address: 192.168.8.4
UDP port 53 responding to queries: YES
TCP port 53 responding to queries: Not tested
Answering authoritatively for domain: YES

**SOA record data from server:
Authoritative name server: serial-pdc.ABCdomain
Hostmaster: admin
Zone serial number: 58
Zone expires in: 1.00 day(s)
Refresh period: 600 seconds
Retry delay: 600 seconds
Default (minimum) TTL: 3600 seconds


**Additional authoritative (NS) records from server:
serial-pdc.ABCdomain Unknown

**Alias (CNAME) and glue (A) records for forest GUIDs from server:

**Total number of CNAME records found on this server: 0

**Total number of CNAME records missing on this server: 2

**Total number of glue (A) records this server could not find: 0

** CNAME records for forest GUIDs missing on server:
GUID: 3cd2ef74-4b24-46eb-a873-a35035fe8300._msdcs.ABCdomain
DC: SERIAL-PDC

GUID: dcfbcff5-31f6-49b2-bba2-858b859829c4._msdcs.ABCdomain
DC: SERIAL-BACKUP


Notes:
At least one CNAME record for an AD forest GUID was missing from a DNS
server
***********************************************************************

In this case, how should I add CNAME record to my DNS? Can anyone give
me specific advise as I am still learning how to manage a DNS server.

Thks.

I might simply run 'net stop netlogon'
'ipconfig /flushdns'
'ipconfig /registerdns'
'net start netlogon'

Not too sure that this will help you, though.

Are you running Active Directory Integrated DNS ( or simply DDNS )?
