Configuration of DNS in Windows® Operated Computers
What are the tips to fix the issues during the configuration of DNS in Windows Operated Computers?
The DNS configuration in Windows Operating system involves various tasks. While configuring the TCP/IP properties for each computer you would have to set a DNS host name for each computer. While you are setting computer names for DNS you can use certain uppercase and lower case letters, numbers and hyphens. DNS domain name is usually used with client computer name so as to form the fully qualified domain name. The fully qualified domain name is used at the time of querying and during location of named resources on your network. The primary DNS suffix which is configured for your computer can be same as its Active Directory Domain name. In most of the cases, client computer contacts and uses its preferred DNS server. So the preferred DNS server must be appropriate.
The following are the tips to fix the issues during the Configuration of DNS in Windows Operated Computers:
- Troubleshoot active directory replication failure
- Troubleshoot DNS Records Registration Failure
- Troubleshooting "Name not found" error message
Troubleshoot active directory replication failure
If the DNS is not configured properly then it might lead to the failure of active directory. The active directory services depend on the ability of the devices so as to locate the domain controllers. Thus to get rid of the issue you would have to verify the DNS records and verify whether all the necessary DNS records exist in the DNS server.
Troubleshoot DNS Records Registration Failure
When the event IDs are logged by the Net Logon service in the System Event Log, then the DNS Records Registration Failure occur. When this failure occurs the domain controllers, domain members and other devices won’t be able to locate the DNS server. Thus so as to resolve this issue you would have to see whether the DNS servers specified in the IP configurations of the Domain controllers are correct.
Sometimes while configuring DNS you would receive some error messages saying that "DNS server was not able to find the name". This error mainly occurs when the DNS computers does not have valid IP configuration for the network. Thus in order to solve this issue you would have to verify whether the TCP/IP configuration settings of the DNS computers are correct. With the help of ipconfig command you can easily verify the TCP/IP configuration.
