Event ID 4515 DNS

Am getting Event ID 4515 in the DNS log with following message:

************
The zone <domain.com> was previously loaded from the directory partition DomainDnsZones.<domain.com> but another copy of the zone has been found in directory partition ForestDnsZones.<domain.com>. The DNS Server will ignore this new copy of the zone. Please resolve this conflict as soon as possible.

If an administrator has moved this zone from one directory partition to another this may be a harmless transient condition. In this case, no action is necessary. The deletion of the original copy of the zone should soon replicate to this server.

If there are two copies of this zone in two different directory partitions but this is not a transient caused by a zone move operation then one of these copies should be deleted as soon as possible to resolve this conflict.
***************

I did create a 2nd zone (don't ask why) when it didn't replicate between DCs... Can anyone give me a step by step process of removing the 2nd AD integrated zone? I read about using ntdsutil, adsiedit etc.... but none of the directions seem clear to me for whatever reason... searching Internet isn't giving me any clear cut answers... am going onsite today.

Any help appreciated!
Thanks...

this depends on which one you want to delete
if you have all 2k3 DC's and want to keep it in a directory partition, then follow step 1
if you have mixed DC's, and / or you want a standard AD integrated zone follow step2

1:  
If you don't have the support toos installed, install them.
Run adsiedit.msc
browse the Domain NC down through  Domain\<domain>\system\Microsoft DNS\
delete the zone here and restart DNS on all your DC's after they realize the deletion...this will allow them to pick back up the directory partition zone

2:
dnscmd <dcname> /DeleteDirectoryPartition <partition name> (partition name is the full LDAP path of the partition such as ou=computers,dc=domain,dc=com)

either option should have a good system state as a beginning in case you make a mistake or change your mind
have fun with it
