    DNS and main domain controller is not working

    my primary domain controller and the only dns server failed this morning and
    not opening.
    i had additonal domain controller in other brach city. when adding the
    primary domain controller back to the domain as alternative it give meerror
    the"

    he following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location
    (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain sanad.itg:

    The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
    (error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

    The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.sanad.itg

    Common causes of this error include the following:

    - The DNS SRV records required to locate a domain controller for the domain
    are not registered in DNS. These records are registered with a DNS server
    automatically when a domain controller is added to a domain. They are updated
    by the domain controller at set intervals. This computer is configured to use
    DNS servers with following IP addresses:

    10.0.1.41

    - One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to its child
    zone:

    sanad.itg
    itg
    .. (the root zone)

    how to solve this problem.

    Re: DNS and main domain controller is not working

    Hello ahmed,

    How did you bring it back to the domain, restore or restart, please describe
    in detail what you have done? Is the branch office server also DNS server?

    Best regards

    Re: DNS and main domain controller is not working

    Hello ahmed,

    Sorry, but you wrote:
    "when adding the primary domain controller back to the domain as alternative
    it give me error the"

    so i thought you brought it back.

    You have no backup of the machine so that you can restore it?

    If you do not have a backup, change the preferred DNS on the branch DC to
    it's own ip address and install DNS server role. Now you have to create a
    new forward lookup zone for your domain, make it primary AD integrated zone.
    If this is done, check that the existing DC is listed correct in the forward
    lookup zone and i would also create a reverse lookup zone for the subnet.

    Then you have to reconfigure all domain machines to use the new DNS server
    on the NIC, either with DHCP scope options or manual on any machine. Then
    run ipconfig /registerdns on the machines or reboot them and check that they
    all register correct in the new DNS server.

    Best regards

    On the information you have given us, it would be very difficult to tell you
    how to solve your problem when you have not properly described the issue.
    You said the only DNS server failed, which is apparently the failed server,
    and you are attempting to add it back as an alternative.

    Question, did you have to restore it from backup, or did you reinstall the
    OS and you are trying to promote it back into the domain or was it neither?

    Was it just DNS that failed and now you cannot logon?

    If DNS was all that failed, install DNS on the additional DC at the remote
    site, make sure it has the sanad.itg Forward lookup zone and run DCdiag /fix
    and netdiag /fix, then put its IP as the Alternate DNS for both DCs. If
    replication had not completely stopped and let each DC get tombstone in the
    other DC's AD database, which takes sixty days, all should be well. If you
    have to create the zone on the remote DC, you may have to remove a
    conflicting zone from AD when the other DC gets back up.
