DNS Issues Preventing ADPREP /Forestprep From Working

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

Hello all,

I've been reading through past traffic here and on other groups
and mailing lists, with a lot of heat centered around simliar problems,
but none close enough to be the fix I need.

We have a mixed-mode Windows 2000 enterprise; a main office and two
satellite offices, each on its own subnet and domain. The domain names
of each site are "bogus" in that they are not registered with the InterNIC.
Each site's domain has its own server which is a DC. The server here in the
main office is also running MSDE to support an accounting app and Exchange 5.5.

The hard drive is failing on one of the remote servers, and TPTB decided it
was time to buy them a new server rather than fix the existing one, so we
bought a Dell PowerEdge 1600 that will be running Windows 2003 Server Standard
Edition.

In trying to prepare the Active Directory forest with ADPREP, I discovered
that Active Directory, and seemingly DNS, have been failing to replicate
between the offices since about April, which if memory fails me was about the
time we upgraded the servers to Win2k SP4.

Our bogus domain names are 'tegjeff.com', 'tegshv.com', and 'tegevv.com',
so I considered the single-label domain problem, but it doesn't seem to
apply.

The first anomaly I see in the NETDIAG output is one I've seen so much
discussion about:

DNS test . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Passed
[WARNING] Cannot find a primary authoritative DNS server for the name
'jeffserver.tegjeff.com.'. [RCODE_SERVER_FAILURE]
The name 'jeffserver.tegjeff.com.' may not be registered in DNS.

I use RRAS to connect the two outbound servers to our main office in a WAN
and have working trusts established. Users aren't having any problems.

I had a 'Duplicate Name' problem that would occur as the remotes log in,
but something I changed has made that go away; the duplicate name was the
name of our home office server, and you'd see it in conflict with nbtstat -n
but as I say that is seemingly fixed.

I guess I should stop spewing... let me dump the output from netdiag /fix
and from dcdiag /fix, in the hope that this will provide some info that
someone can use in directing me towards the light...

Thanks in advance for any and all help,

    Oh, below is the output from IPCONFIG /ALL. Please note that
    "Local Area Connection 2" is a second NIC added due to some

    Let's see, what else can I add...

    Douglas, it would have been to your benefit if you cross-posted instead of
    mutli-posted. All you would have to do is check one of the newsgroups for
    ALL the answers from both groups.

    I cross-posted this to both so you can see what I mean...

    I always get flamed for cross-posting!

    Cross-posting is actually beneficial for you (within reason of course!), but
    multi-posting isn't.

    I was just trying to help you and us out at the same time, and pointing out
    it would have been more beneficial for you to get a collaborative response!
