SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You install the Microsoft Remote Server Administration Tools on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • From this computer, you use the Dnscmd.exe tool or the DNS Management Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. You use one of these tools to manage a DNS service instance that is hosted on a server that is running Windows 2000 or Windows Server 2003.
  • You try to add some secondary servers to the "allowed zone transfer server" list (securelist) of a primary DNS server zone.
In this scenario, the secondary servers are not added to the securelist as expected. Additionally, the symptoms that appear for this problem depend on the number of IP addresses that you try to add to the securelist. The following are the symptoms that may appear:
  • If you try to add more than one IP address, the operation fails.
  • If you try to add only one IP address of a secondary server, the operation seems to complete successfully. However, the operation adds an address of 1.0.0.0 to the securelist, instead of the expected IP address.
For example, you try to add a "4.1.1.1" server and a "4.2.2.2" server to the securelist by using the following command:
dnscmd <server name> /zoneresetsecondaries <zone name> /securelist 4.1.1.1 4.2.2.2
In this case, you receive the following error message:
Command failed: DNS_ERROR_INVALID_IP_ADDRESS 9552
If you try to add only the "4.1.1.1" server to the securelist by using the following command, an IP address of "1.0.0.0" is incorrectly added to the securelist instead of the "4.1.1.1" address:
dnscmd <server name> /zoneresetsecondaries <zone name> /securelist 4.1.1.1
However, in this case, you receive no error message.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2003 use different structures to store the securelist. Additionally, the conversion mechanism does not make correct translation between these different structures.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

WORKAROUND

To work around this issue, make sure that the operating system that is running the DNS management tools is the same as the operating system that is hosting the DNS service instance.

For example, you want to manage a DNS service instance that is hosted on a computer that is running Windows Server 2003. To work around this issue in this example, use the Dnscmd.exe tool or the DNS Management Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in from another computer that is also running Windows Server 2003.
