Help with domain controller


I noticed that its been, probably years, that my machine is no longer actually part of my domain. The trust account probably expired, and I'm guessing with a samba domain, it has to be readded manually to refresh it. So I removed the PC from the domain, but now I can't readd it. I get this error:

a domain controller for the domain galaxy could not be contacted. [...]

Then more info:

Note: This information is intended for a network administrator. If you are not your network's administrator, notify the administrator that you received this information, which has been recorded in the file C:\WINDOWS\debug\dcdiag.txt.

The domain name galaxy might be a NetBIOS domain name. If this is the case, verify that the domain name is properly registered with WINS.

If you are certain that the name is not a NetBIOS domain name, then the following information can help you troubleshoot your DNS configuration.

The following error occurred when DNS was queried for the service location (SRV) resource record used to locate a domain controller for domain galaxy:

The error was: "DNS name does not exist."
(error code 0x0000232B RCODE_NAME_ERROR)

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

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 its child zone:

galaxy
. (the root zone)

For information about correcting this problem, click Help.


I have a feeling its a DNS issue as I did do some DNS changes a while back. So how would I go about fixing this? Tried putting galaxy, as well as galaxy.loc (which resolves to the DCs ip through DNS) no luck.




This is dxdiag.txt

OS is Fedora Core 5





edit: more info:


I have TONS of these in my event logs. I really wish I had not pulled the PC off the domain... now I'm stuck rebuilding my profile until I fix this problem ACK.

Fixed it. Not the way I was hoping though. Reimaged my machine, removed from domain, then it let me readd it. But now I just realized I forgot to pick partition size when restoring so now I have to reimage again so I can pick the size. (I have no partition program that detects sata drives). what a pain.....
