Domain Verification Errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Azure Community,

    Upon trying to verify my domain in Active Directory I receive an error that states:

    Could not verify the domain
    Please try again. If the problem persists, contact support.

    I was curious to know if anyone else has received this error while trying to verify a domain within Azure Active Directory.

    I have double-checked to make sure my TXT records are valid.

    # dig @ns1.seven-labs.com hq.seven-labs.com -t TXT
    ; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> @ns1.seven-labs.com hq.seven-labs.com -t TXT
    ; (1 server found)

    As you can see from the lookup above, the TXT was returned without an error.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi Sam,

    First, are you sure there isn't an existing AAD tenant with this domain? (For example, do you have this domain in Office 365?)

    Second, give it another shot. I can also see using http://www.digwebinterface.com that the TXT records are in fact there, perhaps it was a fluke in DNS propagation.

    Third, give it a go with PowerShell for Azure Active Directory. Use Get-MsolDomainVerificationDns -DomainName "hq.seven-labs.com" -Mode DnsTxtRecord to confirm that the TXT records it expects are the ones you set, and then run Confirm-MsolDomain -DomainName "hq.seven-labs.com".) If you get an error from PowerShell as well, do let us know what it says.
