DNS server service not able to install on win2k8 EE

DNS server service not able to install on win2k8 EE

When you try to install DNS via the server manager getting  “fatal error code 0x80070643″.But through command line”servermanagercmd -install dns” after some times  it gives another message “servermanagercmd.exe has stopped working”.

This is because default dynamic port range for TCP/IP has changed in Windows Vista and in Windows Server 2008
So resolve the issue increase the port using below commands

netsh int <ipv4|ipv6> set dynamic <tcp|udp> start=number num=range

•netsh int ipv4 set dynamicport tcp start=10000 num=1000
•netsh int ipv4 set dynamicport udp start=10000 num=1000
•netsh int ipv6 set dynamicport tcp start=10000 num=1000
•netsh int ipv6 set dynamicport udp start=10000 num=1000

These sample commands set the dynamic port range to start at port 10000 and to end at port 11000 (1000 ports). The minimum range of ports that can be set is 255. The minimum starting port that can be set is 1025. The maximum end port (based on the range being configured) cannot exceed 65535. To duplicate the default behavior of Windows Server 2003, use 1025 as the start port, and then use 3975 as the range for both TCP and UDP. This results in a start port of 1025 and an end port of 5000.
