Windows server domain controller keeps restarting every ten min, error 'system ran into problem need to restart save all your documents,have promoted another server to the domain but still the same

"all these started when i promoted RODC into it." Did you mean add a RODC to the domain or did you actually try to promote a RODC to a RWDC? In order to promote a RODC, you have to demote it first.

It almost sounds like a conflict between your DCs. Have you tried shutting down the RODC to see if the problem goes away?

What is dns? always when i try to download it says dns failed

The Domain Name System makes it possible to assign domain names to groups of Internet resources and users in a meaningful way, independent of each entity's physical location. Because of this, World Wide Web (WWW) hyperlinks and Internet contact information can remain consistent and constant even if the current Internet routing arrangements change or the participant uses a mobile device. Internet domain names are easier to remember than IP addresses such as (IPv4) or 2001:db8:1f70::999:de8:7648:6e8 (IPv6). Users take advantage of this when they recite meaningful Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) and e-mail addresses without having to know how the computer actually locates them.

In general, the Domain Name System also stores other types of information, such as the list of mail servers that accept email for a given Internet domain. By providing a worldwide, distributed keyword-based redirection service, the Domain Name System is an essential component of the functionality of the Internet.

Probably your DNS server failed.

What is the primary DNS and secondary DNS?

There are two basic types of DNS - primary DNS and secondary DNS, which are generally applied to each newly registered domain. They are name server computers where the record of your domain name is stored. The information on both servers is identical. The two DNS values are usually configured by your ISPor hosting provider and given to you as a very important part of your domain registration order details.

In general, domain names can work with only one name server - the primary DNS. However, practice has shown that a domain name needs to have at least two name servers assigned in order to be available at any time. In case there is a problem with the primary name server, the secondary name server will be able to answer the online request for a particular domain. This back-up requirement has turned into an accepted Internet standard that prevents domain names from going offline.

I want to know, if I change my nameservers to another company, how will they know how to associate my domain name with my site?

don't worry they will know it since you will specify the domain in your hosting account control panel.

Dns error

DNS = Domain Name Server

This is a set of specialized servers on the Internet, needed to
translate user friendly internet address such as:

into their binary IP address equivalents, such as: = = (IP address)
$CF 2E C0 FE = (hexadecimal)
1100 1111 0010 1110 1100 0000 1111 1110 (binary)

In order to communicate with Microsoft, your computer
first sends a request to the closest DNS server to resolve
the domain name into a binary address. Once it gets the
binary address of Microsoft, in then prefixes every packet
with a 32-bit destination address, followed by it own 32-bit
return address.

Other specialized computers on the Internet, called routers,
than manage the actual data transfers on a skip by skip basis.


A DNS error means that your computer is either unable to reach
the pre-determined DNS server, or the server is unable to resolve
the particular address due to a non-existent WEB site or a
spelling mistake.

The actual meaning of the message depends on which layer
of the internet protocol in your computer, (or outside of it)
generated it.

Resolve home domain

I assume you mean you have an Internet domain mapped to your home or office broadband IP address. First of all, you need a static IP address but I assume you already have that. The biggest problem is usually that the broadband router will not route anything from "inside" to it's external IP address. In theory, you should be able to set this up but I have never managed to get it working!. There are two ways round it:

(a) If you have an internal DNS server, set up a zone for your domain & point the A records at your servers' local address (192.1698.0.x or whatever).

(b) If you don't have a DNS server, edit the "hosts" file which is at "c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts" in Windows XP (note that there is no extension on the filename!). Ascertain your PC's IP address and add a line similar to this to the file:
Your PC's IP address
Substitute your own domain name for ""
If you have other hostsnames (e.g. then add extra lines with the appropriate IP address (if they're the same server then the same address). Save the file & all should work. You would have to do this on all PC's from which you want to access the domain.

If you're using Linux or MacOS then you can still edit the hosts file - but you probably know where to find it.

If I was wrong & you're actually talking about a Windows domain, then you have to join the computers to the domain & that's bets done from the server management application or, if you don't have that, the appropriate AD control applet.
