Missing DNS NS record in _msdcs delegation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I migrated a SBS 2003 server to SBS 2008 server last week and ran the BPA and was able to correct all items except one.  The error is a DNS error and I cannot manually create the NS record in the zone.  This is the message: "There are no DNS name server (NS) resource records in the _msdcs sub-domain in the forward lookup zone for Windows SBS 2008."

    I demoted the SBS 2003 server and it is no longer available so I cannot work with it.

    Thanks for your assistance.

  • I checked another SBS server and discovered I needed to make a new forward zone for _msdcs.domain.local.  The NS record appeared in the _msdcs folder under the domain's foward lookup zone.

    The problem is solved.  Thanks for your assistance Kevin.

  • What error do you get when trying to create NS manually. Is the zone secure, ad integrated, or what?

  • Hi Kevin,

    I cannot manually create a NS record under the _msdcs folder.  The option does not exist.I can create other DNS records, but not the NS record.  The zone is AD integrated and the _msdcs folder is under the server's domain. 

    I researched the error, restarted the netlogon service, flushed DNS and registered it but no luck.  I have even restarted the server but it did not create the NS record for the server under the _msdcs folder.  All the other DNS settings look right to me.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

  • Hi Kevin

    I need some adivce if possible!

    I have a Windows Server 2003 SP2 Within my domain at my school. i have only one server for DNS and DHCP as well as AD.

    i stupidly enough deleted my DNS settings from the forward and reverse lookup zones for my domain so i have had to rebuild some of my DNS up. so far i have done new zones for both forward and reverse which do work and pick up names and ips from my clients. but ive lost all my SV records which DCpromo creates when making a server as a primary.

    without going into drastic measure. can i rebuild my SV records i.e my _msdcs.domain.local records backup?

     

    also to point out i luckly have acronis backup and restore so i will have backups of all files before i stupidly deleted these settings! could i even put the files back to what it was before??

    i hope you can help

     

    many thanks in advance!
