Hello,

I have three domain controllers at our business. Two are running Windows Enterprise Edition x64 and one is running Windows Advanced Server 2000. The WAS200 Server is being decomissioned. I have gotten as far as transfering all FSMO roles to new domain controller x64 Windows. I have not proceeded any further decomissioning the old server until I have fully resolved a DNS "issue" on our new domain controllers.

The problem I'm facing is that when I run the netdiag /fix on WAS2000, everything checks out fine. When I run the netdiag /fix on both x64 domain controllers, I get the following:

Computer Name: DC01
	DNS Host Name: DC01.domain.local
	System info : Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Build 3790)
	Processor : EM64T Family 15 Model 6 Stepping 4, GenuineIntel

The command completed successfully

The DOMAIN name uses a DNS Suffix, such as "domain.local."
DC01 is the Windows x64 Edition of Windows.

I tried browsing the Internet for a solution and I could not find anything helpful, if that's start. All three DCs are on the same LAN and well vLAN for that matter. I tried these steps:

I removed the netlogon.dns and netlogon.dnb files in the System32 folder, flushed the cache and re-registered.
C:\>ipconfig /flushdns
C:\>ipconfig /registerdns
C:\>net stop netlogon
C:\>net start netlogon

The only thing that did is recreate the two files I deleted. I still get the same [FATAL] and [WARNING] errors!!! Now, I also did notice that in the "Program Files x86" folder all the support tools for x64 were there. I even tried running the netdiag /fix command from that directory path with no success. Is this a known bug for x64 edition windows. As you can see I only have one hotfix on this domain controller. I'm able to resolve names forward and backwards on this domain controller using the nslookup feature.

Could someone help me fix this, please? The Internet and MS site offered no real assistance to this problem. I only saw unanswered feedback on sites I checked on the net.

Thanks. :thumbsup:

Here's a good site to start at: Troubleshooting DNS.
