Task Category: None
The DNS server has encountered a critical error from the Active Directory. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly. The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "00002095: SvcErr: DSID-03210A6A, problem 5012 (DIR_ERROR), data 16". The event data contains the error.
Once a DC is returned from the DSGETDC call, it uses the result to search for the NS record in DNS. If the DSGETDC call fails, or it fails to find the NS record of the DC returned from DSGETDC, the error 4105 will be logged.
Possible causes of the 4105 error:
1) No writeable Windows 2008 DC is accessible, or none returned from DSGETDC call
2) The DSGETDC call was successful, but the DC returned does not have the DNS Server Role installed, or does not register a NS record in DNS.
The following command can be ran from the RODC to check which DC is returned from the DSGETDC call:
