DSfW: DNS record is missing

This document (7013478) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Novell Open Enterprise Server 11.1 (OES 11SP1)
Domain Services for Windows
DSfW

Situation

DNS record is missing for DSfW zone

Missing a system created DNS record for a DSfW zone/domain

Missing one of the following records:
_gc._tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.ldif
_gc._tcp.ldif
_kerberos._tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.dc._msdcs.ldif
_kerberos._tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.ldif
_kerberos._tcp.dc._msdcs.ldif
_kerberos._tcp.ldif
_kerberos._udp.ldif
_kpasswd._tcp.ldif
_kpasswd._udp.ldif
_ldap._tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.dc._msdcs.ldif
_ldap._tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.gc._msdcs.ldif
_ldap._tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.ldif
_ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.ldif
_ldap._tcp.e41ead0e-38c6-4b04-8e82-0ead1ee4c638.domains._msdcs.ldif
_ldap._tcp.gc._msdcs.ldif
_ldap._tcp.ldif
_ldap._tcp.pdc._msdcs.ldif

Resolution

The system created records should be located in /var/opt/novell/xad/ds/dns/RR/ directory

All of the resource records should be there in an ldif file.  Find the file and do a ldapmodify to create the record.

Example for a missing _kpasswd._tcp.ldif

export LDAPCONF=/etc/opt/novell/xad/openldap/ldap.conf

/usr/bin/ldapadd -Y EXTERNAL -f /var/opt/novell/xad/ds/dns/RR/_kpasswd._tcp.ldif

The record should now be created in eDirectory.  Restart novell-named or wait up to 15 minutes for the record to be synced to the bind database on the DNS server(s).
