  • Just to rule out a common mistake; do you run the command As Administrator?

  • Yes tried all. Run as admin on the console. I run it trough server manager.

    I verified logs on the domain controllers nothing found. Auditing is on so should expect something in the security logs. IPAM logs say:

    The user ''is allowed to perform operation 'Create PTR record' as the user is part of 'BUILTIN\Administrators' group.

    I do see an error in the admin log of IPAM

    The IPAM audit task failed to  collect Authentication events from Domain Controller  due to the following error: Operation is not valid due to the current state of the object.

    I wonder if some user rights asssigment stuff has not been setup or mixed up. Any requirements for the IPAM server?

  • Hi,

    Have a nice day! Thanks for your question.

    This error may occur when someone has given "DENY" permission to everyone or that specific account on the object for that DNS zone.

    You need to remove the "Deny" permission from the object. For that you need to make sure you take the ownership of the object. Please check DNS zone security permission for your operation account as the following figure.

    I also agree with above suggestion. Need to run the command with the administrator priviledge.

    Hope above information can help you. I look forward hearing your good news.

    Highly appreciate your effort and time. If you have any questions and concerns, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,

  • So stupid. Seem to have overlooked that permissions are also set on existing records and that deleting and adding can be blocked by permissions on DNS records. I am so sorry to spent all your worthy time on my failure to think harder. Darn again some precious hours of my life gone.
