    Hi! All,
    How do I resolv this issue? I am looking up for help on various forums -
    posting it here and hoping to get a resolution soon.
    event id 7053
    the dns server sendto() function failed. the event data contains the error.

    Let me provide few details so that you can assist me better.
    I have a Windows 2003 std AD box with DNS running for a while now. I decided
    to have a backup AD win2k3 std with DNS on a VM (VMware).
    I installed the OS/ DNS and later configured it as secondary DC via dcpromo.
    I see the DNS zones were replicated almost instantly, but I noticed alls not
    well and there were a few errors when I ran Netdiag and DCdiag (DC
    Membership failed) and the Netlogon/Sysvol shares didnt show up on the
    secondary DC.
    However, I resolved them with the help from threads on various other forums.

    As of now all looks fine - but in DNS events I see the
    event id 7053
    the dns server sendto() function failed. the event data contains the error.

    I see that Microsoft has a fix for this error - but forums say its mostly
    to supress it, I would like to know why Iam getting this error on my
    secondary DC and not on my Primary DC and how to resolv it rather than
    supress it.
    Both my DNS servers dont do DNS forwarding as they are internal DNS
    servers and I believe the root hints are correct (I see the same list of
    root hint servers on the primary and secondary DC/DNS servers).

    Appreciate help in resolving this issue. Pl let me know if I need to provide
    further info.

    Many thanks

    Hi! Ace,
    Yes I am abl to read your response, sorry I was clumsy in replying and did
    not reply properly to the groups. My mistake.
    Iam still getting this error - I tried Replacing root hints with the
    Cache.dns file - which did not work .
    Any other ideas ?

    Many thanks
