Hello,

I'm playing around with my first 2008 server setup. So far the only role
I've added was AD. It is in a new domain (not a production environment)
and is the sole server. It automatically installs DNS during the process.
After the AD wizard ran it rebooted and I see this error along with a few
others in the server manager under the ad role.

The name of my local area domain is abc.lan

The local domain controller could not connect with the following domain
controller hosting the following directory partition to resolve
distinguished names.

Domain controller:

Directory partition:
abc.lan

Additional Data
Error value:
1355 The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.
Internal ID:
3200d50

Hello boe,

PLease post an unedited ipconfig /all from the server. Run diagnostics tool
dcdiag /v and repadmin /showreps If you have errors in the output please
post the complete output here.

Thanks for your help.

I reformatted my computer just in case something else I had done
was messing things up but even after a fresh install and the only item I
added other than windows update was AD (which also installs DNS) I see the
same issue.
I checked and it changed my internal IP address for the DNS to the
127.0.0.1 (it was set for 192.168.20.100) address during active directory DS
wizard

Event String:
The security of this directory server can be significantly
enhanced
by configuring the server to reject SASL (Negotiate, Kerberos, NTLM, or
Digest)
LDAP binds that do not request signing (integrity verification) and LDAP
simple
binds that are performed on a cleartext (non-SSL/TLS-encrypted)
connection. E
ven if no clients are using such binds, configuring the server to reject
them wi
ll improve the security of this server.

Some clients may currently be relying on unsigned SASL binds or
LDAP
simple binds over a non-SSL/TLS connection, and will stop working if this
confi
guration change is made. To assist in identifying these clients, if such
binds
occur this directory server will log a summary event once every 24 hours
indica
ting how many such binds occurred. You are encouraged to configure those
clien
ts to not use such binds. Once no such events are observed for an extended
per
iod, it is recommended that you configure the server to reject such binds.

For more details and information on how to make this
configuration c
hange to the server, please see
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=87923.

You can enable additional logging to log an event each time a
client
makes such a bind, including information on which client made the bind. To
do
so, please raise the setting for the "LDAP Interface Events" event logging
categ
ory to level 2 or higher.

Thanks - during set up it changed it in the DNS section of my IP properties
from using my internal IP of 192.168.20.100 (the server's IP address) to the
loopback 127.0.01 address.

I can ping my abc.lan domain name from a command prompt.

Is this machine pointing to an ISP for DNS? I'm guessing so. Do as Meinolf
suggested and post the ipconfig /all.

In the meantime if this machine is pointing to an ISP just change the client
dns settings to point at the AD DNS server (Which I am assuming is itself)
and modify the dns server to forward unknown dns requests to your ISP. This
should take care of it.

Dcdiag /test:DNS /v /e /s:DC_Name /f:c:\dnstest.txt

Thanks - no, it isn't pointing to the ISP for DNS. I've just posted my
info above.

Is this machine pointing to an ISP for DNS? I'm guessing so. Do as
Meinolf suggested and post the ipconfig /all.
In the meantime if this machine is pointing to an ISP just change the
client dns settings to point at the AD DNS server (Which I am assuming is
itself) and modify the dns server to forward unknown dns requests to your
ISP. This should take care of it.

Hello,
I'm playing around with my first 2008 server setup. So far the only
role I've added was AD. It is in a new domain (not a production
environment) and is the sole server. It automatically installs DNS
during the process. After the AD wizard ran it rebooted and I see this
error along with a few others in the server manager under the ad role.
The name of my local area domain is abc.lan
The local domain controller could not connect with the following domain
controller hosting the following directory partition to resolve
distinguished names.
abc.lan
Additional Data
1355 The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

Thanks - I should have posted - the issue just seemed to go away - perhaps
2008 server just takes time to "settle" when you first set it up.

I have similar problem

Errors from ActiveDirectory_DomainService

The security of this directory server can be significantly enhanced by configuring the server to reject SASL (Negotiate, Kerberos, NTLM, or Digest) LDAP binds that do not request signing (integrity verification) and LDAP simple binds that are performed on a cleartext (non-SSL/TLS-encrypted) connection. Even if no clients are using such binds, configuring the server to reject them will improve the security of this server.

Event String:
The Key Distribution Center (KDC) cannot find a suitable
certificate
to use for smart card logons, or the KDC certificate could not be verified.
Sma
rt card logon may not function correctly if this problem is not resolved. To
cor
rect this problem, either verify the existing KDC certificate using

Time Provider NtpClient: This machine is configured to use the

the
domain at the root of the forest, so there is no machine above it in the
domain
hierarchy to use as a time source. It is recommended that you either
configure a
reliable time service in the root domain, or manually configure the AD PDC
to s
ynchronize with an external time source. Otherwise, this machine will
function a
s the authoritative time source in the domain hierarchy. If an external time
sou
rce is not configured or used for this computer, you may choose to disable

Event String:
The dynamic registration of the DNS record 'abc.lan. 600 IN A
192.16
8.20.100' failed on the following DNS server:

DNS server IP address: ::
Returned Response Code (RCODE): 0
Returned Status Code: 0

For computers and users to locate this domain controller, this
recor
d must be registered in DNS.

USER ACTION
Determine what might have caused this failure, resolve the
problem,
and initiate registration of the DNS records by the domain controller. To
determ
ine what might have caused this failure, run DCDiag.exe. To learn more about
DCD
iag.exe, see Help and Support Center. To initiate registration of the DNS
record
s by this domain controller, run 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from the command
prompt
on the domain controller or restart Net Logon service.
Or, you can manually add this record to DNS, but it is not
recomme
nded.

ADDITIONAL DATA
Error Value: DNS operation refused.
An Warning Event occurred. EventID: 0x00001695
Time Generated: 06/13/2008 09:04:00
Event String:
Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records
associat
ed with DNS domain 'abc.lan.' failed. These records are used by other
computers
to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an
Act
ive Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an
applic
ation partition).

Possible causes of failure include:
- TCP/IP properties of the network connections of this computer
cont
ain wrong IP address(es) of the preferred and alternate DNS servers
- Specified preferred and alternate DNS servers are not running
- DNS server(s) primary for the records to be registered is not
runn
ing
- Preferred or alternate DNS servers are configured with wrong
root
hints
- Parent DNS zone contains inorrect delegation to the child
zone au
thoritative for the DNS records that failed registration

USER ACTION
Fix possible misconfiguration(s) specified above and initiate
regist
ration or deletion of the DNS records by running 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from
the
command prompt on the domain controller or by restarting Net Logon service
on t
he domain controller.
