JSI Tip 8248. You receive an access violation when you run DNSLint to query a BIND-based DNS server from Windows Server 2003?

When you use the DNSLint tool to send a DNS query to a BIND-based DNS server that is in a network that is also running Windows Server 2003 DNS, you receive an access violation in response to the DNS query from the BIND-based DNS server.

This issue will occur if the DNS query response from the BIND-based DNS server contains data in a format that is not recognized by the DNSLint tool.

To fix this problem, download the latest version of DNSLint tool.
