Let me start by saying I have posted this problem in the past, but got very little response. So I'm trying again :)

My event log is filling up every day with the same (or very nearly the same) error message. They say things like:

Registration of the DNS record 'gc._msdcs.mydomain.com. 600 IN A 192.168.111.6' failed with the following error:
DNS server unable to interpret format.

OR this:

Registration of the DNS record '_ldap._tcp.Default-First-Site-Name._sites.dc._msdcs.mydomain.com. 600 IN SRV 0 100 389 GMSERVER1.mydomain.com.' failed with the following error:
DNS server unable to interpret format.

(I've altered the domain name for security)
Can you tell what this error means, taking into account the following?

---The network seems to function fine, just lots of error messages (see attached graphic)

---I've looked into the MS knowledgebase, and have tryed some of the stuff they have listed (i.e. making sure that the TCP/IP settings have not circular references)

---We have a Dell Poweredge 2600 server running W2K Server. I haven't changed the DNS settings. Everything is still at the default settings.

---We have a Watchguard SOHO 6 firewall.

---The T-1 in our building is shared between all suites. The IP I received from the Super when we setup the T1 was a 10.x.x.x IP. I beleive these are internal IP's (?). I tell my FW that is the 'external' IP, and set my internal systems up with 192.x.x.x IP's. The only 'real' external IP's I was given, I was told to use as my primary and secondary DNS servers.


Any help (at all) would be great. Thanks everyone :)
