DnsApi - 11164


Description »
The system failed to register host (A) resource records (RRs) for network adapter
with settings:

   Adapter Name : {B3F49D34-A130-44F7-96A9-15AE32FCBD8D}
   Primary Domain Suffix : fqdn.ad.activedir.local
   DNS server list :
   Sent update to server : <?>
   IP Address(es) :

 The reason the system could not register these RRs was because either (a) the DNS server does not support the DNS dynamic update protocol, or (b) the authoritative zone for the specified DNS domain name does not accept dynamic updates.

 To register the DNS host (A) resource records using the specific DNS domain name and IP addresses for this adapter, contact your DNS server or network systems administrator.
Data formatted as » WORDS
0000: 000005b4 

Here, you're being told that the server could not register the name LOCALCOMPUTERNAME.fqdn.ad.activedir.local.
As the event text suggests, you should check that the zone and server both support dynamic updates. You may also want to check that there isn't already a record with the same name in that zone. In this example, the data field is equal to decimal 1460, which is defined in winerror.h as This operation returned because the timeout period expired.
