I'm working with Windows Server 2016 Essentials. Someone in the organization installed a Linksys mesh network into the router that our server was once plugged into. The Linksys parent node's DHCP is now assigning IP addresses. When the mesh network was installed, it obviously messed up the DNS server because it was configured to use a static IP so they went in and changed the local server to use DHCP instead of its static IP. The mesh network has an IP range of 10.182.1.0/24 and the old router was 192.168.1.0/24. Everything was working fine until the introduction of the mesh network and subsequent changing of the LAN. I am receiving the following error messages.
Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain 'ForestDnsZones.MyServer.local.' failed. These records are used by other computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an application partition).
Possible causes of failure include:
- TCP/IP properties of the network connections of this computer contain the wrong IP address(es) of the preferred and alternate DNS servers
- Specified preferred and alternate DNS servers are not running
- DNS server(s) primary for the records to be registered is not running
- Preferred or alternate DNS servers are configured with wrong root hints
- Parent DNS zone contains incorrect delegation to the child zone authoritative for the DNS records that failed registration
Fix possible misconfiguration(s) specified above and initiate registration or deletion of the DNS records by running 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from the command prompt on the domain controller or by restarting Net Logon service on the domain controller.
The DNS server is waiting for Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to signal that the initial synchronization of the directory has been completed. The DNS server service cannot start until the initial synchronization is complete because critical DNS data might not yet be replicated onto this domain controller. If events in the AD DS event log indicate that there is a problem with DNS name resolution, consider adding the IP address of another DNS server for this domain to the DNS server list in the Internet Protocol properties of this computer. This event will be logged every two minutes until AD DS has signaled that the initial synchronization has been successfully completed.
This computer is now hosting the specified directory instance, but Active Directory Web Services could not service it. Active Directory Web Services will retry this operation periodically.
Directory instance: NTDS Directory instance LDAP port: 389 Directory instance SSL port: 636
My question is would removing the AD DS and DNS roles and adding them back be the right solution.
they went in and changed the local server to use DHCP instead of its static IP.Change the IP address back to the previous address.
