OK, you're almost up to date (SP4 is out now). My searches come up
empty on this as well. Maybe mor from the log will help...

Hello back!

Thank you for your Post!

So here is a snipped of named.run form sys volume. I don't post the whole,

OK, that tells me it's an eDirectory problem, perhaps a rights or RW
replica issue? Make sure the DNS server has a RW replica of the NDS
partition containing your zone data.

Re: DNS Server Error Message on Serve Console

Hello Back!

Thank you for your time and help.

I checked the DNS zone entries again. And noticed in the RootServerInfo
Zone was no Zone-Master defined. I think that was the Problem. I changed it
to my Zone-Master and restarted named. And now i have the no error message.

sincerely

Well, that may have fixed the symptom that you were having, but it was not a
correct thing to do. The RooServerInfo zone should be Primary (you made it
Secondary) and should have no Authoritative servers in the list.

Re: DNS Server Error Message on Serve Console

You are right! Because the Problem is still there.

Oct 04 00:59:09.000 general: dns/db: error: Unable to set Journal Log
attribute or SOA sr. no. with error 25
Oct 04 00:59:09.000 general: dns/zone: warning: zone DNSZONE.ORG/IN: Unable
to update SOA serial number and Journal log attribute in the eDirectory

The DNS Server has RW rights on the replica.

Okey...now im stucked!

Re: DNS Server Error Message on Serve Console

Was this server upgraded from an earlier version? Does you have
multiple NW versions running or are all servers in it running NW 6.5?

Re: DNS Server Error Message on Serve Console

yes it was upgraded from a NW 5.1 Server. We have also two NW 5.1 Servers.
Named just runs on the NW 6.5 Server. Named also works fine, just this
error message appears.

OK, it's good to know that things are working, despite the error. I'm
wondering if there might be a missing schema extension causing the
error. If you want, try the fix in the following TID to re-extend the
schema (the TID doesn't address your issue, but it tells how to do the
schema extension). Be sure to stop NAMED before doing the extension.
