Event 5774 /DNS errors/Latest updates

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.dns (More info?)

Our system recently installed some automatic updates.
Since then we have received numerous EVENT code 5774
errors per hour - net logon

*here is the message <xxxxxx=our server name>

Registration of the DNS
record '_kerberos._udp.local.xxxxxxx.com. 600 IN SRV 0 100
88 SERVER1.local.xxxxxxxxx.com.' failed with the following
error:
DNS server unable to interpret format.

The system is also VERY slow and unresponsive. However, I
can correct this by issuing the following commands upon
reboot.

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
net stop netlogon
net start netlogon

If I do this, then network speed is backup, but we still
get the netlogon errors.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled DNS server to no avail.


Any ideas?

Thanks

Mel

    Here is ipconfig /ALL

    Zone DOES NOT allow dynamic updates. (is this the problem?)

    server1.local.sierradisplay.com is name of dns server
    local.sierradisplay.com is name of domain
    Windows 2000 server SP 4 is the OS.

    Partially, the zone name should be named "local.sierradisplay.com" (the same
    as the primary DNS suffix) and it should allow updates.

    Mel, what Kevin said, but to add....what is your AD DNS name? Which does it
    match??


    Also, these two are the same: ??
    > Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 101.107.192.1
    > DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 101.107.192.1

    Is your gateway address also your Windows DNS server or is it your router?

    Gateway also DNS Server. This has been working fine for
    almost a year until a recent automatic update. Also, I
    just did the following per another post.

    Deleted both zones. Forward and reverse.
    created zones using the name local.sierradisplay.com and
    enabled updates. Then rebooted.

    Same problems. System very slow and sluggish until I run
    the following commands either in a batch file or manually
    from the command line.

    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    net stop netlogon
    net start netlogon

    Then everything works.

    Thanks

    Ok, here is the latest.

    I just did the following per your post.

    Deleted both zones. Forward and reverse.
    created zones using the name local.sierradisplay.com and
    enabled updates. Then rebooted.

    Same problems. System very slow and sluggish until I run
    the following commands either in a batch file or manually
    from the command line.

    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    net stop netlogon
    net start netlogon

    Then everything works.

    Also, FYI as someone else thought this was important in
    another post.

    Gateway also DNS Server. This has been working fine for
    almost a year until a recent automatic update.

    Not sure what you mean by 'slow and sluggish'. Do symptoms include long
    logon times?

    So I guess your router is a Windows machine running DNS? Then it's
    multihomed I assume? Multihoming a DNS and/or DC can cause issues. At any
    rate, if it is multihomed, let's take a look at that guy for a moment. Is it
    running NAT or just routing IP? Assuming NAT, since DNS is on it, let's go
    into Network and Dialup Connections, Advanced, Advanced settings, make sure
    the internal NIC is on top of the binding order. Then lets go into DNS
    properties, Interface tab, and eliminate the external IP address. On the
    external NIC, let's disable MS Client and F&P services (in NIC properties)
    and NetBIOS (under DNS tab in IP advanced properties).

    Go back to DNS, under the zone, provided that the zone name matches the
    Primary DNS Suffix, updates are enabled, and the name matches DNS, which all
    the names should be local.sierradisplay.com in your case, do the SRV records
    exist?

    Prior to running those commands, did the SRV records exist? Are there any
    Event ID errors on the DNS server itself?

    You did not need to reboot, all you needed to do was run the commands you
    ran after you rebooted, these commands are needed to create the SRV records
    and register the DC's IP addresses.

    I just noticed, from your first reply with the ipconfig /all

    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 101.107.192.2
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

    router? What DNS server is this? Does it allow dynamic updates. If DNS is on
    this machine, which it should be, point it to its own address for DNS.

    I believe everything would have worked if you had run these commands without
    the reboot.
    run this command to see how everything checks out, netdiag /test:dns /v

    Ok, Here are a couple of other things.

    First you said the following:
    101.107.192.1<--Is this your
    >router?

    Yes, this is a router. Router is handling DHCP.
    Evidently, it too is handling DNS as well as all
    workstations are set to obtain both automatically.
    I have tried disabling DNS completely on this server and
    it does not change anything.

    What is puzzling is this has all worked for almost 2 years
    and fell apart after an automatic update.

    Here is current configuration:


    Windows 2000 IP Configuration


    Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : SERVER1
    Primary DNS Suffix . . . . . . . :
    local.sierradisplay.com
    Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Hybrid

    IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

    WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

    DNS Suffix Search List. . . . . . :
    local.sierradisplay.com

    sierradisplay.com

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:


    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . : Intel(R)
    82540EM Based Network Connection
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 00-C0-9F-20-2A-
    E6

    DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : No

    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 101.107.192.2

    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 101.107.192.1

    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 101.107.192.2


    Ok, Please consider the following:

    1. Upon a reboot, the FIRST (and only the FIRST)
    workstation can log onto the network successfully
    (including logon script).

    2. Subsequent logon by other workstations are all doomed.
    It goes through the motions but scripts do not execute and
    drives are not connected. If these users got to "My
    Computer" and click on any network drives the see a
    message stating.

    X:\ is not accessible.
    There are currently no logon servers available to service
    the logon request.

    If these users click on network places->entire network
    etc, to get to the server they will also receive a message
    stating the theree are currently no logon servers
    available to service the logon request.

    3. If I run my little batch file that issues these
    commands:

    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    net stop netlogon
    net start netlogon

    Then everything works correctly. Everyone can logon and
    all scripts execute. All drives connect.


    4. I found a knowledgebase article # 830063 that
    describes similar behavior when Routing and Remote Access
    is installed with DNS and a Hotfix has been installed. I'm
    not sure if hotfix is installed. Not shown in Add/remove
    Programs.

    If I Stop the Routing and RAS process (before running by
    batchfile) I get the same behavior.


    Thanks for your help

    You are going to have to either manually enter your DCs address for DNS on
    all clients or disable DHCP on the router and configure DHCP on the server
    with option 003, 005 and 015.
    You cannot disable DNS on the server, all clients must use the server for
    DNS.

    It didn't work right if the clients were using therouter for DNS, something
    else changed.

    With all due respect, you can beat aroung the bush all you want, but until
    the clients are using the DC for DNS, it isn't going to work. Even if you
    have to manually enter the DNS address.

    Ok, I will disable DHCP on router and reconfigure server
    to do both - to be honest, I'm not sure why the need for
    the router to do dhcp anyway.

    However, This has been working (or rather WAS working)
    until a MS sercurity update was automatically installed
    nothing else was changed until we started tinkering around
    trying to fix it.

    I appreciate your help.

    Maybe something was changed and was coincidental with the hotfix? I have to
    agree with Kevin that if you were using the router for the DNS address for
    you clients (or DC for that matter), I cannot see that it 'has been working
    all this time until a hotfix' because of AD and AD client's reliance on
    using only it's own DNS for resource and service locations.

    You said you have RAS installed on the DC/DNS server. May I ask what it's
    purpose is?
