    Problems with DNS

    I'm getting this error every couple of seconds:

    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
    "000020EF: SvcErr: DSID-02050344, problem 5012 (DIR_ERROR), data
    -1014". The event data contains the error.

    It's on SBS 2003 SP2. Googling doesn't give much help here. Any
    thoughts on that?

    As Larry asked, please post the EventID# and SourceName and run the SBSBPA.

    Also, please post an unedited ipconfig /all to help eliminate basic
    configuration issues.

    BPA discovered a couple of issues although none of them seems to be
    related to DNS but surely worth testing.
    The weird thing is it says the the SP1 has not installed successfully
    even though the server is on SP2. I wonder if
    after installing SP2 there is any point in reinstalling SP1?

    The EventID is 4015, Source NS,

    Sometimes getting down to the root of a 4015/DNS can be difficult, but
    it points to not being able to contact AD for zone data (since it is
    stored in AD). If this wasn't an SBS with a multihomed DC(a DC with
    multiple NICs, IPs and/or RRAS installed), I would say to disable the
    additional NIC, and get a firewall/router to perform the tasks (VPN,
    routing, etc), which is guaranteed to elminate the 4015s. Matter of
    fact, you will possibly hear other responses to single-home the SBS to
    avoid associated errors that are caused by multihoming.

    One thing I just noticed is in the time or more precisely sometimes a
    couple of seconds other times around 30 min after these DNS errors
    occur I'm also getting EventID: 7 Source: KDC

    "The Security Account Manager failed a KDC request in an unexpected
    way. The error is in the data field. The account name was
    various_usernames_and_computernames@newsgroup and lookup type 0x
    2something.
    Strange but there must be some connection between thees DNS and KDC.

    BPA is telling you that SBS SP1 isn't installed, not Windows Server 2003
    SP1. These are different. SBS SP1 is a collection of updates to the entire
    SBS bundle of products. Windows SP1 is just Windows Server Service Pack.

    So, just when did the current issue (4015) show up and what changes were
    made just prior?

    Yes, EVERYTHING is related to DNS when it comes to Active Directory.
    I'm surprised you are not getting any other AD errors in the other
    event logs.

    As KJ asked, what occured or was changed prior to the 4015s showing up?

    Re: Problems with DNS

    Others are already on the job with handling DNS, but one thing that caught
    my attention is your service pack issue.

    There is a difference between a *windows* service pack and an SBS service
    pack. You can be at Windows 2003 SP2 and missing SBS 2003 SP1, which is a
    *very* bad place to be.
