Event ID 4016 — DNS Server Active Directory Integration

Updated: November 13, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

red

You can configure the DNS Server service to use Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to store zone data. This makes it possible for the DNS server to rely on directory replication, which enhances security, reliability, and ease of administration.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 4016
Source: Microsoft-Windows-DNS-Server-Service
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: DNS_EVENT_DS_LDAP_TIMEOUT
Message: The DNS server timed out attempting an Active Directory service operation on %1. Check Active Directory to see that it is functioning properly. The event data contains the error.

Resolve

Troubleshoot AD DS and retry adding the zone

AD DS is not responding to requests from the DNS Server service. The DNS Server service relies on Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to store and retrieve information for AD DS-integrated zones. Ensure that AD DS is functioning properly, troubleshoot any problems, and then try to create the zone again.

For information about troubleshooting AD DS, see Active Directory Troubleshooting Topics (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=95789).

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

Create the zone after resolving any problems with AD DS.

To create a zone:

  1. On the DNS server, start Server Manager. To start Server Manager, click Start, click Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
  2. In the console tree, expand Roles, expand DNS Server, and then expand DNS.
  3. Expand the DNS server, right-click the zone folder for the type of zone that you want to add, and then click New Zone to open the New Zone Wizard.
  4. Follow the instructions in the wizard to create the zone.

Verify

Ensure that Event IDs 4523 and 4524 are being logged and that no events in the range 4000 to 4019 appear in the Domain Name System (DNS) event log.
