DNSAPI error: 11166

I have a 2000 DC and a 2003 server that runs SQL 2000. I have been receiving
this error since day 1 of the 2003 server joining domain. (6 months) There is
an RR in the reverse zone. Any help would be great. Thanks
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: DnsApi
Event Category: None
Event ID: 11166
Date: 8/11/2005
Time: 11:20:58 AM
User: N/A
Computer: W2K3SQL
Description:
The system failed to register host (A) resource records (RRs) for network
adapter
with settings:

Adapter Name : {551AE832-67C7-49E3-BA90-3E4D7FF5C4B6}
Host Name : w2k3sql
Primary Domain Suffix : Domain.internal
DNS server list :
192.168.254.5
Sent update to server : 192.168.254.5
IP Address(es) :
192.168.254.4

The reason the system could not register these RRs was because of a
security related problem. The cause of this could be (a) your computer does
not have permissions to register and update the specific DNS domain name set
for this adapter, or (b) there might have been a problem negotiating valid
credentials with the DNS server during the processing of the update request.

You can manually retry DNS registration of the network adapter and its
settings by typing "ipconfig /registerdns" at the command prompt. If problems
still persist, contact your DNS server or network systems administrator. For
specific error code, see the record data displayed below.

Re: DNSAPI error: 11166

The permissions on the existing DNS record are not allowing it to be updated.

Try deleting the existing A record and any reverse zone PTR RR, and then run a netdiag /fix
to re-register everything in DNS and see if that takes care of it. This is pretty
quick but of course should be done when people are not accessing it.
