    DNS access error

    Hi everyone

    I have a slight issue, Im 2 days into a new job and for some reason this morning the DNS has broke on the server !

    When trying to run the DNS it says the server cannot be contacted, access is denied, add anyway ? This is slightly worrying as DNS is trying to connect to AD on the same machine.
    I have no idea why this has happend

    any help would be much appreciated as it's a slight issue with people not being able to get mapped drives or printers

    Many Thanks in advance

    Wayne

    This happened to me this morning.

    The solution? Right click the DNS Management icon in the start menu and click run as administrator

    Hope that works for you too!

    thanks for the quick reply

    dcdiag gave this :
    Performing initial setup:
    Trying to find home server...
    Home Server = SVR-ARH-DC01
    * Identified AD Forest.
    Done gathering initial info.

    Doing initial required tests

    Testing server: ARH\SVR-ARH-DC01
    Starting test: Connectivity
    The host a3f80d71-d58c-498f-a197-0c73301dd6c8._msdcs.lcc-schools.local
    could not be resolved to an IP address. Check the DNS server, DHCP,
    server name, etc.
    Got error while checking LDAP and RPC connectivity. Please check your
    firewall settings.
    ......................... SVR-ARH-DC01 failed test Connectivity


    and sadly right clicking run as administrator didnt work i wish it had though !

    Is the DNS server running zones that are AD integrated or not?

    As far as i know the DNS should be running intergrated zones, the error messgaes in event viewer suggest it does.
    They say that it is unable the DNS server is configured to obtain and use information from the directory for this zone and is unable to do load the zone without it.

    its very odd as i can ping the server and it a client machine knows that the DNS is on the dc01 and the domain :S

    thanks

    What OS? Have you altered the firewall settings recently?

    Was worth a shot. Got my own problems today so I'll duck out of this one now... good luck - you're in good hands here.
