Error Message:

DNS Server failed to initialize reverse WINS lookup, through netBIOS adapter status lookup. This may be due to a incorrectly configured NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) configuration. Try restarting DNS server. If reverse WINS lookup is not required, remove WINS-R records from zone datafiles and restart DNS server.

User Action:

To check the NetBIOS over TCP/IP configuration: 1. Open Control Panel, and then double-click Network and Dial-up Connections. 2. Right-click the network connection, and then click Properties. 3. Click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click Properties. 4. Click Advanced, and then the WINS tab. 5. Verify that the IP addresses for both the primary and secondary WINS servers are correct, and that the Enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP radio button is selected. 6. Click OK. If you continue to receive this message, verify that the WINS reverse lookup record has been configured correctly by using DNS Manager or by opening the appropriate XXX.XXX.in-addr.arpa database file located in the Systemroot/System32/Dns folder. You can edit this database file using Notepad, but you must stop DNS first.
