    Event ID 4004 and 4015

    I am running Domain 2000 since long time on which I recently added two Active Directory 2003. After doing this still my 2000 DC is running fine without any problem but on one of the two new 2003 FC, I keep receiving the following the error message in the event log:

    MessageId=4004
    Severity=Error
    SymbolicName=DNS_EVENT_DS_ZONE_ENUM_FAILED

    The DNS server was unable to complete directory service enumeration of zone %1. This DNS server is configured to use information obtained from Active Directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly and repeat enumeration of the zone. The event data contains the error.

    MessageId=4015
    Severity=Error
    SymbolicName=DNS_EVENT_DS_INTERFACE_ERROR

    The DNS server has encountered a critical error from the Active Directory. Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly. The event data contains the error.
    Can somebody please help me out of this? Many thanks.

    In order to fix this, you just need to change the DNS AI to a DNS primary zone. Once done simply point all existing DCs to that DNS primary zone. Now remove DNS domain partition using adsiedit or ntdsutil. Now replicate the changes and wait for the zone to be created automatically or use the DNS console to create the Zone. Once done, you will need to restart the server.

    A combination of event ids like 4015 can occur when a NIC is replaced and the binding order is wrong. Go to Network Connections -> Advanced Settings. In the Advanced menu make sure that the most important NIC is on top at the Adapters and Bindings tab.
