Hi. We run a Windows 2000 domain. All of a sudden, DNS entries are dropping like flies. We increased our scavening times, but this has not helped. We checked our logs, but could not find anything significant. Any suggestions on a tool to use or something else we can monitor? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Some of the common DNS errors you may find in Event Viewer include: Are you getting nay of these?132 (Warning) DNS_EVENT_NBSTAT_ADAPTER_FAILED
404 (Error) DNS_EVENT_CANNOT_BIND_TCP_SOCKET
409 (Warning) DNS_EVENT_UPDATE_LISTEN_ADDRESSES
500 (Error) DNS_EVENT_INVALID_REGISTRY_ZONE
1003 (Error) DNS_EVENT_CACHE_FILE_NOT_FOUND

DNSCMD.EXE is located in the \SUPPORT\TOOLS folder on the Windows 2000 installation CD. It is a command line utility which offers a wide range of DNS management functions.

Microsoft has released a free training course titled “Understanding and Troubleshooting DNS in Windows 2000″ that is available for download as a compressed file that contains a CD ISO image and instructions about how to create a CD from the image. This course provides in-depth discussion of Domain Name Service (DNS) as implemented in Windows 2000, with emphasis on best practices for installing, maintaining, and troubleshooting the DNS Client service and DNS Server service in Windows 2000 networking and Active Directory directory service environments <a href=”http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=330511″>see here</a>
