Here is the situation:
We have two dns servers in the parent domain, on one dns server with a '.' on
it, this was done for security reasons. There is a child domain that
administers their own dns servers. All zones are AD integrated. Everything
was working fine. An admin in the parent domain decided to create a new '.'
zone on the second dns server in the parent domain. After replication
occurred, this "new" '.' zone was replicated to the child domain and I think
the original '.' zone was overwritten. Does this sound plausible? Question is
why wasn't the original '.' zone replicated to the second dns server in the
parent domain, but when a new '.' was created on the second dns server it was
replicated to the child domain? We are trying to determine what happened and
if our conclusions are correct. Any help would be great. Thanks.
