Event ID 4511 — DNS Server Active Directory Integration

Updated: November 13, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can configure the DNS Server service to use Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to store zone data. This makes it possible for the DNS server to rely on directory replication, which enhances security, reliability, and ease of administration.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 4511
Source: Microsoft-Windows-DNS-Server-Service
Version: 6.0
Message: The zone %1 was successfully saved to the new directory partition as %2, but the old copy of the zone was not fully deleted from the old directory partition as %3. Manual cleanup of the old zone may be required. The event data contains the error code.


Delete a zone copy

If an administrator has moved this zone from one directory partition to another, this may be a harmless, transient condition. In this case, no action is necessary. The deletion of the original copy of the zone should soon replicate to this server.

If there are two copies of this zone in two different directory partitions but this is not a transient condition, delete one of the copies as soon as possible to resolve the conflict. For more information, see "Event ID 4515 is logged in the DNS Server log in Windows Server 2003" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/867464/en-us).


Ensure that Event IDs 4523 and 4524 are being logged and that no events in the range 4000 to 4019 appear in the Domain Name System (DNS) event log.
