DNS replicating or not???

i have created a new site with a new subnet in Active Directory Sites and services. There is a connection under NTDS settings that seems to work when i force replication. so i would assue that connecitvity is OK.

I added the new server at the new site to the "Name Server" tab under the DNS zone on the original site.

I then try to add the DNS zone on serve in the new site and get the following message.

"the zone cannot be created. The process can not access the file because it is being used by another process"

Then when i look on the DNS event log on the new servero the new site i see Event ID 4513 which says:

Event Type:      Information
Event Source:      DNS
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      4513
Date:            27/04/2005
Time:            11:19:55
User:            N/A
Computer:      LET1
The DNS server detected that it is not enlisted in the replication scope of the directory partition ForestDnsZones.paperlinx.co.uk. This prevents the zones that should be replicated to all DNS servers in the paperco.paperlinx.co.uk forest from replicating to this DNS server.
To create or repair the forest-wide DNS directory partition, open the the DNS  console. Right-click the applicable DNS server, and then click 'Create Default Application Directory Partitions'. Follow the instructions to create the default DNS application directory partitions. For more information, see 'To create the default DNS application directory partitions' in Help and Support.
The error was 5.
