Windows 2003 SOA and DNS issue

    Question

  • I have looked at several articles to no avail I haven’t found an answer. I have been researching for over 2 months across the web, I hope I can get same direction here.

    Here is my situation.

    I have 2 ad's at my office.

    for referencing i will name them dc1.domainname.abc.tx and dc2.domainname.abc.tx

    Both servers were originally named abc.com

    dc1 is primary and dc2 is secondary

    We had a power urge that caused my primary to reboot (discovery ups isnt working correctly)

    When the server came back up the dhcp scope was not there and the server (primary only) reverted back to the abc.com and the soa is pointing to the abc.com

    My secondary is picking up the permissions rights at the moment while researching to find an answer but my secondary is also starting to have issues I believe from the replication between the 2 servers.

    I tried repointing the SOA to correct ptr but hen i rebooted the server it reverted back to the abc.com again.

  • Hello,

    to understand your environment, 2 DCs in the domain domainname.abc.tx?

    So what is about the abc.com domain? Was there a rename process done or what did you mean with were originally named with abc.com?

    Please post an unedited ipconfig /all from the servers and also the NOW shown domain names in AD UC, DNS zones and the NetBIOS domain name.


    Best regards
