DNS MP – DNS 2003 External Resolution Monitor minor bug

The new DNS MP (6.0.6480.0) fixes several nasty bugs, but it adds a minor typo that breaks the External Resolution Monitor. By default the monitor checks for external name servers (querytype=ns) given a domain name, alas the default search is set to www.microsoft.com that’s not properly a domain, so the monitor always fails. Just ovverride the monitor and set to microsoft.com (or some other external DNS domain) to make it works.

    Thanks, I installed SCOM tonight and finally got just about everything tuned, and this one alert was driving me batty. At least it gave me a reason to learn how to do overrides, so it’s not all bad. :)
