SRV records for Active Directory not found

Hello everyone, this is my first technical question in the forum.


I have created SRV records for my Active Directory by replicating the following DNS records from my Windows domain controller.


The SRV records look like this in GoDaddy.

_kerberos _tcp _kerberos._tcp.dc._msdcs 0 100 88 1/2 Hour
_ldap _tcp _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs 0 100 389 1/2 Hour
_ldap _tcp _ldap._tcp.gc._msdcs 0 100 3268 1/2 Hour
_ldap _tcp _ldap._tcp.pdc._msdcs 0 100 389 1/2 Hour


The IP address of is defined as an A record and is resolvable.

The problem is that the SRV records don't seem to be working. Windows clients can't find the domain, and with Linux commands like this fail for example.


[sms05dab@hydra ~]$ nslookup

** server can't find NXDOMAIN


SRV lookups with and similar also fail, returning "no records exist" or similar errors. Are there any obvious errors in my SRV records or am I doing something else wrong? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
