Hi folks,

 I have just received an error when trying to add a W2K Prof. client =
to my domain.  The error is:

   "A domain controller for the domain snowshore could not be =

Clicking help in the error box says:

   " The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.snowshore

     Common causes of this error include the following:
     - The DNS SRV record is not registered in DNS.

     - One or more of the following zones do not include delegation to =
it's child zone.
       . (the root zone)"

I have a simple single-site domain.  One domain called SNOWSHORE.  I =

I DO see some DNS errors in my Event Viewer on my AD master:

Source: DNS
Event ID 4004
The DNS server was unable to complete directory service=20
enumeration of zone office.snowshore.com. =20
This DNS server is configured to use information obtained from=20
Active Directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone=20
without it.  Check that the Active Directory is functioning properly=20
and repeat enumeration of the zone.=20
The event data contains the error.=20

a reboot just minutes ago.  As the system was about to reboot I got a =

About 2 weeks back, I did install 2 additional NIC cards so that I could
connect the machine to other physical networks so that I handle NIS =
from those networks (using SFU on this machine too).  I do not think =
has caused my problem but I am mentioning it as a curiosity.The reboots =
only happened 2 days ago and just this morning. =20

Any thoughts or words of advice I would appreciate.  I would welcome a =

sanity check DNS and also a way to resolve the master browser hopping =
Seems as though my Master Browser keeps hoppping between machines. How =
do I
make that stay with my AD servers?
