Net Logon registers the following DNS A records to be used by LDAP clients that do not support DNS SRV records (in other words, clients that are non-SRV-aware). Locator does not use these records.
Host (A) Records Registered by Net Logon
|Host (A) Resource Record||Description|
|DnsDomainName.||Enables a non-SRV-aware client to locate any domain controller in the domain by looking up an A record. A name in this form is returned to the LDAP client through an LDAP referral. A non-SRV-aware client looks up the name, whereas an SRV-aware client looks up the appropriate SRV resource record.|
|gc._msdcs.DnsForestName.||Enables a non-SRV-aware client to locate any global catalog server in the forest by looking up an A record. A name in this form is returned to the LDAP client through an LDAP referral. A non-SRV-aware client looks up this name.|

If DNS records are updated dynamically, check DNS for the previously mentioned records, and make sure that dynamic updates are enabled on the DNS zone. For information about how to troubleshoot DNS dynamic updates, see Troubleshooting dynamic updates.
You can also use a Hosts file on the client upon which GPMC is running. Specifically, you can add a record for the domain names (for example, contoso.com) and the IP address of a domain controller to the file.
