    Sometimes workstations aren't able to connect to the server. When I look in the event viewer this is that I see.

    Can anyone make anything of this.

    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: NETLOGON
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 5781
    Date: 5/31/2006
    Time: 5:40:26 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: DELLSERVER
    Description:
    Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain 'TAPI3Directory.LeanderHealthCareCenter.local.' failed. These records are used by other computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an application partition).
    Possible causes of failure include:
    - TCP/IP properties of the network connections of this computer contain wrong IP address(es) of the preferred and alternate DNS servers
    - Specified preferred and alternate DNS servers are not running
    - DNS server(s) primary for the records to be registered is not running
    - Preferred or alternate DNS servers are configured with wrong root hints
    - Parent DNS zone contains incorrect delegation to the child zone authoritative for the DNS records that failed registration
    USER ACTION
    Fix possible misconfiguration(s) specified above and initiate registration or deletion of the DNS records by running 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from the command prompt or by restarting Net Logon service. Nltest.exe is available in the Microsoft Windows Server Resource Kit CD.

    The server is running windows 2003 server. Do you think this will still work?

    Configure the Netlogon service to depend on the DNS service. This will cause the Netlogon service to start after the DNS service starts. To do this, run REGEDT32, and go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Netlogon
    In the right pane, double-click the value DependOnService and add DNS to the next available blank line. Click OK and exit Registry Editor. For additional information, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
