The dns server could not open a registry key.Re-install the dns server if it was not able to be stable

    Question

  • Hi,

    I have an alert in SCOM console stating that "The dns server could not open a registry key.Re-install the dns serverif it was not able to be stable"

    More of SCOM alert output is:

    AlertName: DNS 2003 Reload Restart Or Reinstall Required Alert

    ManagmentPack: Microsoft Windows DNS 2003 Server

    for this I've checked DNS server and its working fine.Also ran DC DIAG but no errors found for DNS servers.

    This alert is repetitive in my environment. What could be the reason? and what will be the solution for this?

    Thank you in advance.

  • Hello Exrapul,

    Check out this article, it describes how to handle this error:

    • Reload a zone
    • Restart the DNS Server service
    • If the DNS Server service does not start, reinstall the DNS server role

  • Hi Jaap, 

    Thanks for the information and I will do the steps as you suggested above.

    is the network issue/fluctuation cause of this kind of issue?

  • That is hard for me to determine just based on an error code. If you suspect issues with the network infrastructure you could use an utility such as smokeping to have an overview of the latency or time outs your connections experience.
