DNS SOA issue

    Question

  • My main DNS server at our main site has an issue with it's SOA record. When I go to the name servers it shows all 4 of our DNS servers including this one. However the IP address of this one will not work. It tells me an unknown error occured while validating. When I put in the servers FQDN it shows up with a green check mark with the ip address ::1 and says ok under validated. Then below that is says 192.168.0.5 with a red x next to it and error while validating. What would cause this to happen?

    

    I am also getting the error This domain controller must register its dns host a/aaaa records

  • What happens if you temporarily disable ipv6? Is the server also a DC? If so can you run dcdiag /test:dns and look for any errors? While IPv6 is disabled can you ping your loopback address? In the event logs do you have any errors or warrnings?

  • I have the ipv6 turned off on all the servers. Yes this is also a DC.
