none
DNS name does not exist

    Question

  • the error I get is
    "DNS name does not exist", "error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR".

    I can’t join new computers to the domain, shared folders ask for username and password (when they already had permissions to go in that folder) and it takes a long time to go in the shared folder. I had two DC, a main one PANTERA and the backup PANTERABACKUP. Our PANTERA server failed so we had to reinstall everything and used PANTERABACKUP to replicate back to PANTERA. Now PANTERABACKUP is down and this is when this problem started. I already followed instruction to remove PANTERABACKUP from the new PANTERA server, but I am still having the same problems. Checking the results on the dcdiag, netdiag and repadmin I found the following errors (I've attached the files also). Could anyone please let me know if there is something I can do to fix this. Thanks in advance.

    The following problems were found while verifying various important DN

    latency in replication. So follow up to resolve the following

    problems, only if the same problem is reported on all DCs for a given

  • When the original failed did you cleanup the metadata before you re-promo'd?

    http://blogs.dirteam.com/blogs/paulbergson/archive/2009/06/09/active-directory-cleanup-the-most-common-question-i-see.aspx

    If you didn't properly cleanup things everything is going to confused if you used the same name.  Read the link above and follow if you haven't already done so.

  • Hi I tried the manual cleanup with no success, still having the same errors. Then I tried the script and it only showed the server I hace now, no other servers to select. any other ideas?

  • Hello,

    it looks that the new installed DC has the same name as the crashed one? Then remove the new installed DC from the network and run metadata cleanup on  PANTERABACKUP to remove all about the crashed and the other DC according:

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

    Also make sure that PANTERABACKUP is DNS server and Global catalog server before adding a new machine to the domain.
