|Message:||The DNS server failed to open adapter %1, for netBIOS adapter status lookup.|
The DNS server tried and failed to perform a WINS reverse lookup by using the NetBIOS nbtstat utility. DNS uses nbtstat for lookup because the WINS database is not indexed using IP addresses, and therefore the Windows 2000 DNS functionality cannot perform a reverse name lookup on the WINS server (that is, it cannot locate a computer’s name given its IP address). Instead, DNS uses nbtstat to send a node status request directly to the given IP address.
Check the bindings of your NetBIOS interface by double-clicking Network and Dial-up Connection in Control Panel, and opening the network connection. Check the cable connection from your network adapter to the 10BT drop. Try running nbtstat from the command prompt. If you are able to resolve the address from the command line, try stopping and restarting DNS.
