Question about Microsoft Windows 2000 for PC

1 Answer

DNS Event Id 7062

The server is giving the following Event Message at everty 6-10 minutes:

"The DNS server encountered a packet addressed to itself -- IP address .

The DNS server should never be sending a packet to itself. This situation usually indicates a configuration error.

Check the following areas for possible self-send configuration errors:
1) Forwarders list. (DNS servers should not forward to themselves).
2) Master lists of secondary zones.
3) Notify lists of primary zones.
4) Delegations of subzones. Must not contain NS record for this DNS server unless subzone is also on this server.

Example of self-delegation:
-> This DNS server dns1.foo.com is the primary for the zone foo.com.
-> The foo.com zone contains a delegation of bar.foo.com to dns1.foo.com,
(bar.foo.com NS dns1.foo.com)
-> BUT the bar.foo.com zone is NOT on this server.

Note, you should make this delegation check (with nslookup or DNS manager) both on this DNS server and on the server(s) you delegated the subzone to. It is possible that the delegation was done correctly, but that the primary DNS for the subzone, has any incorrect NS record pointing back at this server. If this incorrect NS record is cached at this server, then the self-send could result. If found, the subzone DNS server admin should remove the offending NS record. "

Please Let me know the solution

    I have installed two server DC and ADC. In both the servers DNS is configured. In forward lookup zone "." and "abc.com" is appearing. The Event ID 7062 is generating the logs very frequently. What is wrong with DNS configuration.

    yes, I created DC and removed from server. After removing that, I got this same problem in my server.

It sounds like you have 2 DNS servers running on your network.

disable the one in windows and use the one supplied by your router

Hi all\r\n Newbie to servers, ive been given an computer with server 2003 loaded on it it has been through the first stage setup and now im with a few things, mainly when i run the email and internet...


DNS-servers translate names, such as 'www.fixya.com' to IP-addresses, because routing of IP-packets on the Internet is done using the IP-addresses, not by using the names of each computer.

If you have a router between your computers and your cable-modem (or DSL-modem), then the router can automatically supply the "Primary DNS Server" and "Secondary DNS Server" and "IP Address" to your server computer, if you configure the network-adapter on the server to "automatically obtain an IP Address".

As long as you leave your server running, the "dynamic" IP-address that it obtains will, in effect, become a "static" (namely "non-changing") IP-address.

DNS


If the Windows 2003 server is utilized as the DNS server, then yes it should be set to 192.168.1.5. You need to get into the Linksys router via http://192.168.1.1 and under DNS of DHCP if it is set to .1.1. You should be able to change it to .1.5.

Cannot get internet access using windows explorer


One possible reason could be the workgroup or domain settings.
Try clearing that and make the laptop work as a standalone computer, so it does not look for the configured workgroup/domain when you connect to the network in the internet cafe.

DNS Name resolution Between private & Public network.


You do not need to configure ISP's PTR records. Instead define their DNS addresses as forwarders in the properties of DNS server under forwarders tab and flush DNS cache.

First timer installing a Server network


Well i'm just going to start where i would start. First off, how do your machines on the network get their IP? DHCP?

Is the first listed DNS server the AD server? 192.168.1.1?

Also make sure your using case sensitive domain information when your trying to connect. It is rare but i have had that be my trouble.

I have remote software available and would love to help you fix this hands on if possible. I live for network problems ;)
