Event ID 4012 — DNS Server Active Directory Integration
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.
|Product:||Windows Operating System|
|Message:||The DNS server timed out attempting to write resource records to the Active Directory at %1. Check that the directory is functioning properly and add or update the records using the DNS console. The event data contains the error.|
Troubleshoot AD DS and reenter the record
AD DS is not responding to requests from the DNS Server service. The DNS Server service relies on Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to store and retrieve information for AD DS- integrated zones. Ensure that AD DS is functioning properly, troubleshoot any problems, and then correct the record that failed.
For information about troubleshooting AD DS, see Active Directory Troubleshooting Topics (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=95789).
To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.
To correct a resource record:
- On the DNS server, start Server Manager. To start Server Manager, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
- In the console tree, expand Roles, expand DNS Server, and then expand DNS.
- Expand the DNS server, and then expand the resource record's container.
- If the resource record exists in the container, right-click the resource record, and then click Delete.
- Right-click the container, and then, to recreate the resource record, click the appropriate command for the type of resource record.
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.
