Hello everyone. I am going nuts with this server. I keep
getting this error in the event log. Since it is a GC DC,
I know if no way to deal with this problem. Can someone
please help me??? See what you can make of this.
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: DNS
Event Category: None
Event ID: 414
Time: 6:51:55 PM
The DNS server machine currently has no DNS domain name.
Its DNS name is a single label hostname with no domain
(example: "host" rather than "host.microsoft.com").
You might have forgotten to configure a primary DNS domain
for the server computer. For more information, see
either "DNS server log reference" or "To configure the
primary DNS suffix for a client computer" in the online
While the DNS server has only a single label name, all
zones created will have default records (SOA and NS)
created using only this single label name for the server's
hostname. This can lead to incorrect and failed referrals
when clients and other DNS servers use these records to
locate this server by name.
To correct this problem:
1) open ControlPanel
2) open System applet
3) select NetworkIdentification tab
4) click the "Properties" button and enter a domain name
or workgroup name; this name will be used as your DNS
5) reboot to initialize with new domain name
After reboot, the DNS server will attempt to fix up
default records, substituting new DNS name of this server,
for old single label name. However, you should review to
make sure zone's SOA and NS records now properly use
correct domain name of this server.
I have yet to find the help i need in either the Knowledge
Base or in the newsgroups just yet. Please HELP! !
Thank you in advance for your time and advice.
