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

Most likely issue is that there is a DNS name which contains characters no longer allowed.

What is/are allowed are a-z, A-Z, 0-9, – and _

Older implementations of DNS allowed non-RFC compliant characters.

Let us know what happened,

Bob

    Make sure the computer name does not have a any symbols in it (ie. #, *, @) if it does remove the signes and just make it a normal name (ie. comp1)

    Did you do a dump (zone transfer, technically ls -d) of the zone files, both forward and reverse? If so, you can email them to me privately (Assuming nothing sensitive in them), and I'll take a quick look. Bob

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;288176 CAUSE This issue can occur if you are using a computer that is running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows 98 Second Edition, and the computer name includes special characters, such as a number sign (#), an ampersand (@), or a dollar sign ($). You can use the characters in computer names when you use Windows 95 and Windows 98, but Windows 2000 DNS only supports the en dash character (-) and the underscore character (_), by default. If your computer name includes a different special character, the DNS server rejects the name registration in DNS. RESOLUTION To resolve this issue, use either of the following methods: ? Find the computer name that has the unaccepted special character, and then change the name. NOTE: This method is recommended. -or- Configure DNS so that it allows all names: 1. Start the DNS snap-in on the server. 2. Right-click the server and click Properties. 3. Click the Advanced tab, and then enter All Names in the Name Checking box.
