I get a 414 error in the DNS Event Log on my only Domain
Controller that states:

"DNS name is a single label hostname with no domain
(example: "host" rather than "host.microsoft.com").

You might have forgotten to configure a primary DNS domain
for the server computer. For more information, see
either "DNS server log reference" or "To configure the
primary DNS suffix for a client computer" in the online
Help."

Obviously on a domain controller I cannot go into the
Network Properties under system and reset those. I have
also run the script from Knowledge Base Article - 257623
and that did not seem to work (the proper settings seem to
be set in the registry)

I am having several strange problems such as Exchange
won't start because it says it cannot contact my domain
controller, I get errors when I run DCDIAG:

"SERVER's server GUID DNS name could not be resolved to an
IP address. Check the DNS server, DHCP, server name, etc
Although the Guid DNS name (7942fd1f-bf54-4105-a1d5-
45f6824bfbab._msdcs.domain.com) couldn't be resolved, the
server name (SERVER) resolved to the IP address
(xx.xx.xx.xx) and was pingable. Check that the IP address
is registered correctly with the DNS server."

and when I run NETDIAG it says there is no host name.

Does anyone know how to "reset" the host name and/or
primary dns name for a domain controller?

Use the script in this KB to fix the Primary DNS suffix on your domain
controller, then run this from a CMD Prompt: netdiag /fix

Yes, I mentioned below that I actually tried that based on
one of your posted response a week or so ago. That didn't
seem to take care of the problem. I even ran it again
just to see if it would help. No luck.

Any other ideas?

Not without you posting an unedited ipconfig /all, Domain name from ADUC and
your list of zones in DNS.

Here is the output. I also added the netdiag and dcdiag
results, thinking those might help. The domain name in
ADUC is signet-computers.com.

If this ipconfig /all is not edited it appears to me that when you ran the
script you put a space between the - and the c in signet-computers.com
That said, does the DNS at 66.92.163.218 have a copy of the AD zone?

Unfortunately the space in the domain name was due to the
cut and paste into the email. The ipconfig output has the
name correctly entered.

the 66.92.163.218 server does act as a secondary DNS
server and has a copy of the AD zone.

Any other thoughts?

From looking at your zone data, I suggest you re-install the AD zone to
clear the bad data. This DC has the correct records in the zone, but it also
still has the data from when it had no Primary DNS suffix.
Follow this KB exactly to clear the bad data from the zone, I think it will
clear this up. Do not miss a step!

I tried to reinstall the dynamic DNS AD Integrated Zone
and that did not work. The problem does not seem to be
that there are incorrect settings from some old
configuration that needs to be cleaned up. The problem is
that the Dyanamic DNS keeps jamming those incorrect
entries in there. The real question is why does Dyanamic
DNS feel that it has to regenerate those settings and
where is it getting that information from?

I appreciate your help, but I think I am going to have to
spring for the Microsoft Support. In most of the
Knowledge base articles they define this as a known
problem, yet I still have to pay to get it fixed.

Thanks - Again

From what I'm reading into this thread having not seen your zone, it seems
that you have mutliple entries for the same computer account or it is
registering without a suffix? If that is the case, do all your machines have
a Primary DNS suffix configured?

I apologize if my assumptions are incorrect.
