7062 Error

Post by Garrett Jo » Wed, 29 Dec 2004 09:26:18

The DNS server encountered a packet addressed to itself on IP address
192.168.16.*. The packet is for the DNS name
The packet will be discarded. This condition usually indicates a
configuration error.

(7062 Error) This error occurs about every 4 seconds for both of the
server's nic cards. They're both plugged into a switch, from what I
understand not a good setup. And both of the server's IP addresses are
hosting DNS for internal requests, everything else goes to the symantec
router which appears to be working fine.

The network set-up, or should I say resetup took care of all of my
connectivity issues, but I'm still getting massive ammounts of 7062 errors.
Until I get a 3000 error.

All packet errors are coming to the only DNS server.

The packets are from dns names

I'm running SBS 2003.

Go through the list in link and you will find one misconfiguration that
applies to your server.

Thanks for the reply-
Ok I'm not sure I understand half the DNS terminology but I have some leads
as to what might be wrong. I browsed through all the DNS entries and found
some "interesting" things.

Foward Lookup Zone
In the servername.local folder there is a Host (A) record pointing to the
DNS server IP address. Along with the Start of Autority and Name server

In the reverse lookup zone on the server has a pointer record to the DNS IP,
as well as the SOA and NS records.

The question is are any of these records out of place, or am I missing
something entirely?

re you sure you have records referring to servername.local? You should have
domainname.local. I don't think it is even possible to use the same name for
server and domain. Check root hints tab to make sure your server IP is not
one of them.
