I have two issues I’m presently encountering with deploying UCS, and it is all centered around DNS.
My domain say example.com has a name server with glue records et al. But I want users connected to the DOmain Controller to think all the name server they have is DC’s hostname and any other back up DC I provide and not see the organisation’s Name server. Every A record entered on the nameserver would be entered on the PDC so there won’t be any break as far as reaching records in the example.com domain. Also all queries my DC does not know about would be forwarded to the Name Server of the organisation.
This is presently set up, but anytime I do a nslookup on computers connected to the DC, I see my organisation’s nameserver instead of the PDC. Has anyone experienced this before?
I get this error message:
Caution! The DNS service record for the UCS Master was not found in the DNS server.
Details are explained in the Support Database.
I have gone through the support database which says:
No domaincontroller_master SRV record and how to create it in the AD DNS
To join a domain, UCS systems lookup the hostname of the UCS Master from the DNS service record _domaincontroller_master._tcp. In case a UCS server is joind into an Active Directory domain by means of the Active Directory Connection setup, this service (SRV) record needs to be present in the DNS Server running on the responsible Active Directory DC. The record can be created manually by executing the following steps on the system running the DNS server:
Open the DNS Manager
In the navigation tree open the Forward Lookup Zones open the DNS zone of the domain
Below the DNS forward zone of the domain open the folder branch named _tcp, right click on it and select Other New Records
In the new dialog select Service Location and click on Create Record
In the Service field, enter _domaincontroller_master
In the Protocol field, enter _tcp
In the fields Priority, Weight and Port number choose 0
In the Host offering this service field, enter the fully qualified domain name of the UCS Master
Confirm by clicking OK
And I can confirm I have the record in my DNS Manager. Can anyone explain why I keep getting this error message?
Thanks in Advance.
