Event ID 11192 — DNS Client Deregistration

Updated: November 13, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

yellow

A computer that is configured to use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to obtain IP addresses can automatically register its IP address and Domain Name System (DNS) name with the DNS server that is authoritative for the zone that hosts their domains. This eliminates the need for an administrator to manage host (A or AAAA) resource records for client computers. When DHCP assigns a new address to a computer, the DHCP client can request that its previous address be removed from the DNS server. This process is called deregistration. Problems with automatic deregistration do not prevent a computer from accessing the network, but they can cause names to be resolved to incorrect addresses.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 11192
Source: DnsApi
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: EVENT_DNSAPI_DEREGISTRATION_FAILED_TIMEOUT_PRIMARY_DN
Message: The system failed to update and remove host (A) resource records for the network adapter with these settings:

Adapter Name: %1
Host Name: %2
Primary Domain Suffix: %3
DNS server list:
%4
Sent update to server: %5
IP Address(es):
%6

The update request timed out while awaiting a response from the DNS server. This is probably because the DNS server that is authoritative for the zone where these resource records need to be updated is either not currently running or reachable on the network. You can retry DNS registration of the network adapter and its settings by typing "ipconfig /registerdns" at a command prompt. If the problem persists, contact your network administrator.

Resolve

Retry DNS registration

When your computer is assigned a new network address automatically, it attempts to notify the DNS server of the change of address. A problem occurred when your computer made this attempt. Often, this is a transient condition, although it can indicate a problem with the DNS server. This condition rarely causes problems for your computer unless you share resources such as folders or printers.

Although it is not necessary, you can direct your computer to retry the DNS registration.

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

To register your computer's address with the DNS server:

  1. On the DNS client computer, open a command prompt. To open an elevated Command Prompt window, click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  2. At the command prompt, type ipconfig /registerdns, and then press ENTER.

If the problem persists, contact your network administrator and provide the information in the event message.

If you are a network administrator, see Troubleshooting Dynamic Updates (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=103842) for information about troubleshooting DNS registration.

Verify

Use the ipconfig /registerdns command to register the computer's network name and address with a DNS server and then check the event log for errors.

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

To register the computer's network name and address with a DNS server:

  1. On the DNS client, open a command prompt. To open an elevated Command Prompt window, click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    ipconfig /registerdns

Wait 15 minutes, and then check the event log to verify that a DNSapi event with an ID in the range 11180 through 11197 was not logged after you ran the command.
