This article  provides brief information and steps to resolve the issue when you are unable to add Windows DNS Server to IPAM. 

The following error appears:

Environment

All IPAM versions

Cause 

This is an issue on the DNS server.

Possible Resolution

Note: Run the following steps from the IPAM server, and then send the output to our Support team. 

  1. Click Start > Run, and enter wbemtest.
  2. Click OK
  3. Click Connect.
  4. In Namespace, enter \\<ipaddress of DNS server>\root\MicrosoftDNS.
  5. Enter the username and password used for IPAM.
  6. Click Connect, and then click Query.
  7. Enter the following query:

SELECT Name FROM MicrosoftDNS_Zone

  1. Click Apply

You should See the DNS Zones, similar to MicrosoftDNS_Zone=<no key> for each zone.

  1. Double-click one of the entries above to see the zone name at the bottom.
  2. Save screen shots of the output, and send them to Support.

 


 

Note: The same issue is experienced when running the Wbemtest locally on the DNS server. This confirms that the issue is with the DNS server and not an issue within IPAM.
