2502

Messageid=2502
Severity=Informational
SymbolicName = DNS_EVENT_AGING_SCAVENGING_END_NO_WORK

The DNS server has completed a scavenging cycle but no nodes were visited. The possible causes of this condition include:

  1. No zones are configured for scavenging by this server.
  2. A scavenging cycle was performed within the last %1 minutes.
  3. An error occurred during scavenging. The next scavenging cycle is scheduled to run in %2 hours. The event data will contain the error code if there was an error during the scavenging cycle.

2600

Messageid=2600
Severity=Informational
SymbolicName = DNS_EVENT_SERVER_SUPPRESSION

To prevent the event log from filling up too rapidly the DNS server has suppressed event ID %1 a total of %2 times in the last %3 minutes.

2601

Messageid=2601
Severity=Informational
SymbolicName = DNS_EVENT_ZONE_SUPPRESSION

To prevent the event log from filling up too rapidly the DNS server has suppressed event ID %1 a total of %2 times in the last %3 minutes. These events were in relation to zone %4.

2630

Messageid=2630
Severity=Informational
SymbolicName = DNS_EVENT_AUTOCONFIG_FAILED

The DNS server could not configure the network connections of this computer with the local computer's IP address as the preferred DNS server, because this computer is connected to networks with different or invalid DNS namespaces. Manual configuration of the local DNS server to perform name resolution on one or more of the namespaces is required before the preferred DNS servers of this computer should be modified. If the network connections of this computer are not configured with the local computer's IP address as the preferred DNS server, this computer may not be able to dynamically register DC locator records in DNS. Absence of these records may prevent other Active Directory domain controllers and domain members from locating this domain controller.

User Action: Ensure that DC locator DNS records enumerated in the file %SystemRoot%\system32\config\netlogon.dns are registered on the local DNS server. If these records are not registered in DNS, follow one of these steps:

  • Add a delegation to this DNS server to the parent DNS zone that matches the name of the Active Directory domain.
  • Configure the local DNS server with appropriate root hints and forwarders, if necessary, and configure the network connections of this computer with the local computer's IP address as the preferred DNS server.

    Note Other computers using other DNS servers as their preferred or alternate DNS servers may not be able to locate this domain controller, unless the DNS infrastructure is properly configured.

2631

Messageid=2631
Severity=Informational
SymbolicName = DNS_EVENT_AUTOCONFIG_SUCCEEDED

The DNS server successfully autoconfigured: %1 %2 %3

3000

SymbolicName=DNS_EVENT_UPDATE_DS_PEERS_FAILURE

DNS Server has updated its own host (A) records. In order to insure that its DS-integrated peer DNS servers are able to replicate with this server, an attempt was made to update them with the new records through dynamic update. An error was encountered during this update, the record data is the error code.

If this DNS server does not have any DS-integrated peers, then this error should be ignored. If this DNS server's Active Directory replication partners do not have the correct IP address for this server, they will be unable to replicate with it.

To insure proper replication, follow these steps:

  1. Find this server's Active Directory replication partners that run the DNS server.
  2. Open DNS Manager and connect in turn to each of the replication partners.
  3. On each server, check the host (A record) registration for THIS server.
  4. Delete any A records that do NOT correspond to IP addresses of this server.
  5. If there are no A records for this server, add at least one A record corresponding to an address on this server, that the replication partner can contact. (In other words, if there multiple IP addresses for this DNS server, add at least one that is on the same network as the Active Directory DNS server you are updating.)
  6. It is not necessary to update EVERY replication partner. It is only necessary that the records are fixed up on enough replication partners so that every server that replicates with this server will receive (through replication) the new data.
