Trouble seeing Domain Controller name

Discussion in 'DNS Server' started by Peter Parker, Apr 15, 2004.

  1. In
    If hh.hrm.lan is the domain name then DNS is not the issue.
    What OS is giving you the error?

    You can also see userenv errors if the DC is multihomed, or if you have an
    incorrect DNS in the DNS list.

    It seems like mostly my XP machines are the issue and yes I am seeing the
    userenv error in my event logs. I even see it on my DC which is a 2003
    server. I looked at my DNS list and it looks correct as well.

    I am baffled by this!

    Scott are you switching domains? One thing I found to help is to reinstall
    the driver for the network card on client PC (XP Pro for me). This did away
    with Event Log Errors of not seeing the Domain (don't know why but it
    works). No I just need to figure out why I keeps lossing and the gaining my
    Kerbros when I do a Netdiag

    I would have guessed it was XP, there is an issue with the Web Client on XP
    causing slow access to the DFS share. This was corrected on SP1, have you
    installed SP1 for XP?

    Is your DC multihomed?
    Are you using the DC only for DNS on all machines?

    Not sure what you mean by multihomed, but I have three DNS servers
    internally. One hosts DNS for hrm.lan, one for hh.hrm.lan, and one for
    ht.hrm.lan. All are DC's as well. I have one 2000 server that host DNS for
    our public domain name. All the other DC's I spoke about act as secondary
    dns for each domain so that I have redundancy thoughout the company.

    Hope you understand what my configuration.

    Thanks!

    Multihomed means multiple IP addresses, which is complicated even more if
    you have multiple NICs on multiple subnets.
    Is hh.hrm.lan and ht.hrm.lan child domains for hrm.lan?

    hrm.lan should have delegations named hh and ht in it going to the DNS
    servers that have the zones even if the zone is on the same DNS server. The
    delegation keeps the hierarchy working.

    As I said if any DC is multihomed it can cause communication to fail.

    No I do not have anything setup as multihomed. I have 1 NIC in each machine
    using just one IP address.

    Yes hh.hrm.lan and ht.hrm.lan are child domains.

    Yes I do have the 2 child domains setup in my hrm.lan dns as delegation.

    Seems like I have everything that you mentioned set right. You think there
    might be something else?

    Thanks

    With a delegation, provided that they were delegated properly, the child
    domain's DNS server should be the only DNS that the child domain clients
    will use. You want to also set a search suffix for the parent domain if it's
    not already auto set. Then in the child domain's DNS server, set a forwarder
    to the parent domain's DNS server.

    255248 - HOW TO Create a Child Domain in Active Directory and Delegate the
    DNS Namespace to the Child Domain:
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=255248

    Now if you are using all 3 DNS server IP addresses in all your clients, then
    I can see why you're getting mixed results. You need to only use the DNS
    server that was delegated for the child zone for the child clients.
    Otherwise, make sure a copy of all your zones are on each DNS. But what I
    see is you have delegation and provided it;'s configured properly, it should
    just work.

    If the clocks say the same time but they are in different time zones, then
    that would cause a problem since Kerberos has a 5 minute skew policy.

    Hey Ace I have another question for you. If on all my DNS servers I have
    secondary zones setup with each others domains as the secondary zones, I can
    discard doing setting up the forwarders correct?

    Well, yes you can, since they all have copies of everything.

    You would still individually forward out to the ISP's.

    The secondary zones I am talking about are strictly for my internal DNS. I
    have another DNS server on the network that handles all my External DNS. On
    my internal DNS servers would I put forwarders pointing to my external DNS
    server, or just enter in the IP of my ISP DNS? My external DNS server syncs
    with my ISP's DNS to keep ip updated with my external DNS and basically acts
    as a secondary zone for my External DNS.

    Hope that makes sense!

    Yes it does, so you may as well forward to your own external DNS.
