The DNS server failed to initialize WINSR reverse lookup, through NetBIOS adapter status lookup. The server will continue to run but will not attempt to perform WINS reverse lookups. This may be due to an incorrect configuration. If WINSR lookup is not required, remove WINSR records from zone data files and reload modified zones or restart the DNS server. If the DNS server should support WINSR reverse lookup, restart the server computer and verify that the WINS/NetBT configuration for TCP/IP client properties on the computer are correctly set.

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.
