    DNS confusion

    Our Server 2003 servers connected to our Server 2008 R2 domain all seem to have weird DNS errors in the event viewer!

    Mainly : Dnsapi (Failed to register PTR)
    NetBT (The name could not be registered)
    MrxSMB (The master browser...)

    Any ideas as to what is going on? DNS confuses me a lot!

    Hello googlemad,

    do you have reverse lookup zones for all of your subnets?
    are you using secure updates?

    search the the event ID's

    Found the problem - Didn't have a reverse lookup zone set up.
