Hi Hugo,

I apologize for not seeing your response earlier. Are both UDP 53 and TCP 53
opened on the firewall? The reason I ask is because of the error you are
getting trying to update the Root Hints. I can't remember whether this
required UDP or TCP (I think it is UDP), but both ports should be opened.

Hi! Ace,
Thanks for the reply. No apologies, it was me who messed the reply to the
group :)
The windows firewall is turned off on both the DC's. Have a question here.
The DNS settings is the same for both the DC's, why is the second DC trying
to update its Root Hints? I dont see the error on my first DC.
Is there a way I can disable the secondary DC from checking for Root Hints
update ?

Many thanks
Hugo

My question regards your edge firewall to the internet, not on the servers.

As far as your question, I am not sure. However, I am also not sure by what
you mean by "settings." There are *numerous* settings on a DNS server. One
little thing can be different.

I don't know if I had posted this between the different threads, but I
thought to post it for you just in case.
http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=7053&eventno= 727&source=DNS&phase=1

It basically says that a nameserver entry is incorrect in the nameservers
tab, but I think you said they are correct?

Hi! Ace,
These DC are internal domain controllers. We cannot access internet from
these boxes.
I will go thru the url you provided and update you. Appreciate your help!.

Hi Hugo,

I understand they are internal DCs, however because the servers are DNS
servers, they will need access for forwarders (if you setup forwarders as
recommended), and/or queries to the Root hints.

Let me know what you find.
