DNS Service does not start after Windows Update. RRS feed

  • Question

  • After performing a windows update (without KB314526), we rebooted the server.  The DNS service did not start.   There are two DC's in the domain.  The Master DC is in a physically different location.  DNS and AD services are working fine on that server.  

    The DCDIAG report on the failed DNS server shows the following:

    Any ideas as to why the service won't start?

  • 1) Is the time same on both primary DC and secondary DC ? If not correct it.

    2) Check if DNS Zone files are not corrupted.

    3) Any events when you manually start the dns service  ? Check the event logs.

    4) Is the network interface card allowed to register the DNS record ? (See the Fig)

    5) Try uninstalling windows update & check the result.

  • 1. Time has been verified as correct.

    2. DNS Zone files verified as not corrupt.

    3. Only event says "DNS Service Failed to start.  This is the 6th time this has happened."

    4. NIC's are configured as your graphic above.

    5. Uninstalling Windows update showed no difference.

    I'm thinking this is a DNS configuration issue.  Please review graphic below:

    The folder "Elko" is a site location.  I've never seen it split up like this before.  This host is the only server that IS working.
