after SP4 where to make Registry changes

Post by Djis » Fri, 19 Dec 2003 20:54:50


I have single label domain.
Two 2000 DCs they are also DNSs, and I have XP Prof and
2000 Prof clients.

After SP4, I need to do Registry changes on DC's, member
servers, and XP i 2000 clients.
I read KB 300684, but I don't understand where to make
which Registry changes.

AllowSingleLabelDnsDomain and
UpdateTopLevelDomainZones .

Can someone help me?

best regards
Djis

If you do not understand how to use regedt32 I would suggest you get someone
to make the registry entries.

Using regedt32 expand to those keys then in the menu click Edit, New Value
for the value name use for example AllowSingleLabelDnsDomain, Data type
REG_DWORD, click OK then set the Data to 1

I know how to make changes in Registry, but I did'nt
understand on which machines I need to do changes. In
text (KB 300684) I am not sure who are domain members?
Are Domain members all XP Pro, 2000 Pro clients and all
DNS and DC?

KB 300684 recomands to do changes for DCLocator on each
domain member, also DNS Client Configuration on DC and
domain members.

Does it mean that I need to do both changes on all
machines?

Yesterday I did:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DnsCa
che\Parameters

UpdateTopLevelDomainZones (REG_DWORD) registry value to
0x1

And after this there is no more warnings on server (which
is DC and DNS):

Event Type: Warning
Event Source: NETLOGON
Event Category: None
Event ID: 5781
Date: 18.12.2003
Time: 13:08:07
User: N/A
Computer: BIGMAMMA
Description:
Dynamic registration or deregistration of one or more DNS
records failed because no DNS servers are available.
Data:
0000: 2a 23 00 00 *#..
