    Hey everyone

    I get the following warning in SBS Best Practice Anaylser: "The DNS name
    server records do not exists. The forward lookup zone DOMAIN.local does not
    contain any DNS name server (NS) resource records with SERVER.DOMAIN.local
    for the _msdcs delegation."

    How can I fix this entry in dns-manager and what values do I have as
    standard in this tree for an SBS 2008 Server?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

  2. Open DNS, right click the grayed-out _msdcs folder under domain.local, choose properties. What nameserver is in the properties? It should be the server itself, server.domain.local.

    If that is not in there, it could be a configuration issue causing it. To better help, post an ipconfig /all, and any event log err EventID# you see.

    Thank you,
