Missing glue A record - Error details: 9714 (Type: Win32 - Description: DNS name does not exist.)

    Question

  • New to AD (just completed move from Novell).  I ran a diagnostic on my AD and have found the following error and not sure how to fix it.  (This is an extract from the diagnostic text file.)

  • Chris,

    this behavior is identical to what you'd experience if you had an incorrect name server entry for the _msdcs delegation. In the DNS Manager, are you actually looking at the delegation node (i.e. the grayed-out node labeled _msdcs under mbc.ca.gov)?

    Note that this is different than the content of _msdcs.mbc.ca.gov - which would contain only the "valid" records

  • Hello,

    "Missing AAAA record at DNS server" belongs to IPv6 on the server. Disabling IPv6 should solve the problem but this is not recommended by Microsoft now.

    To disable IPv6: http://blogs.dirteam.com/blogs/paulbergson/archive/2009/03/19/disabling-ipv6-on-windows-2008.aspx

    Once disabled, run ipconfig /registerdns and restart netlogon on all DCs.

    For co-existence from IPv4 and IPv6 see:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc738372(WS.10).aspx

  • OK I think I fixed the IPV6 issue.  (I ran the fix on this site - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852)  However, I still have these errors:

    TEST: Delegations (Del)
    Delegation information for the zone: my.domain.name.

    Delegated domain name: _msdcs.my.domain.name.
    Error: DNS server:MDNAD.my.domain.name. IP:<Unavailable> [NOTE: This server no longer exists.]
    [Missing glue A record]
    [Error details: 9714 (Type: Win32 - Description: DNS name does not exist.)]

    The "MDNAD.my.domain.name" server was a server we had created, but removed from our environment. A review of DNS can't find an entry for this server.

     

    Also, this error give the IP of the "Master" AD DC yet references the "Secondary" DC server.

    Warning:
    Missing AAAA record at DNS server XXX.XXX.25.141:

  • If you have a DC that no longer exists then perform a metadata cleanup.

  • Hello,

    as MDNAD.my.domain.name seems not longer to exist please run metadata cleanup:

    http://msmvps.com/blogs/mweber/archive/2010/05/16/active-directory-metadata-cleanup.aspx

    For Ipv6 some details are mentioned here about recommendation and requirements:

  • Seems that you have an entry for MDNAD.my.domain.name designating it as a Name Server for the _msdcs.my.domain.name. zone= (you should be able to verify this by checking the list of name servers authoritative for this zone (Name Servers tab of the zone Properties dialog box). You could potentially remove it from there, but it would be more prudent to peform a thorough metadata cleanup and ensure that all references to that DC are deleted. Use any of the links provided above - my personal favorite is http://msmvps.com/blogs/acefekay/archive/2010/10/05/complete-step-by-step-to-remove-an-orphaned-domain-controller.aspx

  • How many DCs do you have? Please post IPCONFIG/ALL for your DC here.  Are you using Active Directory Integrated DNS zone?

    Run metadata cleanup http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc736378(WS.10).aspx and go through step till list servers in site.  Verify these DCs names and make sure they are valid.  They don’t exist, perform a metadata cleanup to remove these DC references from AD database.

  • OK, I ran the Metadata Cleanup process:

    1. Tyoe ntdsutil, and then press ENTER.
    2. Type metadata cleanup and then press ENTER.
    3. Type connections and press ENTER.
    4. Type connect to server servername and then press ENTER.
    5. Type quit and then press ENTER.

    The Metadata Cleanup menu appears.
    6. Type select operation target and press ENTER.
    7. Type list domains and press ENTER.
    8. Type select domain number and press ENTER.
    9. Type list sites and press ENTER.
    10. Type select site number and press ENTER.
    11. Type list servers in site and press ENTER.

    A list of servers in the site, each with an associated number, is displayed.

    Unfortunately, the server "MDNAD.my.domain.name" is not listed in the "List of Servers".  So no further action can be taken.

    12. Type select server number . . . . .

  • I checked the properties of the "_msdcs.My.Domain.Name" object in DNS Manager and reviewd the "Name Servers" tab.  There are two entries listed.  Both are my current AD servers: "MDNADMaster" and "MDNADSecondary" both showing the correct IP addresses for each server. (Note: We do have 12 Distict Office RODC servers in our remote District offices, but only the two DCs at our HQ location.  However, all 14 have DNS services runnig.)  Also, the only entries in the "_msdcs.My.Domain.Name" container are the two DCs, the 12 RODCs, one Start of Authroity (SOA) object which lists the Master DC server and hostmaster, and two Name Server (NS) entries listing the two DCs.

  • Have you confirmed that the error you are listing above is actually generated by the same DC that you are querying via nslookup?

  • I ran the check and the NSLOOKUP on the other DC and got the exact same results.

    This error is still being found running the batch file below.

  • Chris - which specific DC is returning this error?

  • I ran the NSLOOKUP command on both DC and both reported the same results.  Each of the DCs report the other as Master.

  • Chris,

    this doesn't answer my question. I'm referring to the error displayed by your batch file. Which DC generated this error?

  • Chris,

    this behavior is identical to what you'd experience if you had an incorrect name server entry for the _msdcs delegation. In the DNS Manager, are you actually looking at the delegation node (i.e. the grayed-out node labeled _msdcs under mbc.ca.gov)?

    Note that this is different than the content of _msdcs.mbc.ca.gov - which would contain only the "valid" records

  • Doh, I finally found the entry.  Removed it and a DNS error on DIST19FileSvr and all errors are now gone.  Thanks for you patience!
