Problems with DNS

Y

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 :DNS,

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.

As well as disable RRAS on the DC.

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?

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.

It's rather difficult to trace it back. It goes beyond the log limits.
I'm checking that server only when the client tells me something wrong
is going on which is rather quite rare. I spotted that problem when
checking another one. So I can't really tell when this particular one
started occurring and what has changed. The only thing the client does
on that server is storing their data and emails. They install all the
critical updates themselves which is the only change they do to the
system without consulting. Possibly one of the updates could have
triggered that error. As to the SBS SP1 according to the Add/Remove
Programs list it is there. If BPA says it wasn't installed
successfully it may mean that parts of the installation failed at
which point I wonder if it would be safe to uninstall it based only on
BPA diagnostics. The service pack was installed mid 2007 so it's been
running for quite a while, who knows what can go wrong when trying to
remove it at this point...
