Event ID: 1004 Source: DNS

The DNS server could not find or open zone file <zone> in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Dns directory. Verify that the zone file is located in this directory and that it contains valid data.

0000: <error code>
Error code:  02 00 00 00 (0x00000002 = The system cannot find the file specified.). The HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CCS\Services\DNS\Zones registry key still has a subfolder/key for the zone but the zone file is missing. See ME197146 to solve this problem.
I was getting this event and EventID 1000 whenever the DNS service was started. I noticed that a new ".temp" file is created each time the service starts. On opening this file, I noticed that it contained data about one of the secondary zones on this server. I deleted that zone, removed its .dns files, and then recreated the zone. All was well after that. I think that this was caused by corruption in one of the zone files.
Error code: e5 03 00 00 (0x000003e5 = The procedure number is out of range.) - As per Microsoft: "This problem may occur if the zone contains special non-ASCII characters. For example, the problem occurs if the zone contains the "", "", or "" characters". See ME837753 for a hotfix applicable to Microsoft Windows Server 2003.

The specified file might have incorrect permissions assigned to it, or the file might be corrupted. See MSW2KDB for additional information on this event.
