The Active Directory Domain Services role service is installed on a domain controller that is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
One or more teaming network interfaces are installed on the domain controller.
You run the Domain Controller Diagnostics tool (Dcdiag.exe) at the command prompt of a domain controller that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or of a computer that is running Windows 7.
In this scenario, the connectivity test that is run by the Dcdiag.exe tool fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message in the Dcdiag.exe tool output:
Testing server: <site>\<DCNAME> Starting test: Connectivity * Active Directory LDAP Services Check Message 0x621 not found. Got error while checking LDAP and RPC connectivity. Please check your firewall settings. ......................... <DC Name> failed test Connectivity
In some scenarios, you receive the error message without the error code 0x621.
The issue only occurs if you run the Dcdiag.exe tool on a server that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 or on a computer that is running Windows 7.
The Dcdiag.exe tool outputs the error code 0x621 incorrectly as the following error message:
Message 0x621 not found.
The expected error message is as follows:
Both IPV4 and IPV6 channels are disabled on all adapter cards of the local server. Hence no connectivity to the server.
This issue occurs because the Dcdiag.exe tool does not use a reliable method to check whether a network connection is a physical interface on a computer that is running in Windows Server 2008 R2. When the teaming network interface is installed, the tool incorrectly detects that the interface is not a physical network interface, and then the tool outputs error code 0x621.
