Event ID: 504 - DNS server could not create zone

Postby chicagotech » Fri Jun 01, 2007 10:55 am

Microsoft does have solution for this event. Quoted: Configuration: Event ID 504

Resolve:
Correct zone file data in the registry
Possible resolutions include:

• Use Registry Editor to ensure that registry zone data (such as the zone file name) that is located under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\DNS Server\Zones is correct. If not, update the zone data in the registry manually.

• Use the DNS snap-in to delete the zone and then recreate it.


Verify:
Using the DNS snap-in, verify that all configuration settings are correct. Check the event log for events that indicate continuing problems. Verify that DNS client computers are able to resolve names properly.
