Domain DNS server can't find the AD DNS zones for the foerst
Posted on 2006-06-12
I have a forest with two domains. The servers are 2000 and 2003. Recently, the main server that contained the AD-integrated zone data for one of the domains crashed and had to be replaced. This server was one of two DC that were both Global Catalog servers for this domain. I created a new server, ran the metadata cleanup brought the server online with a different name and IP address to avaid any conflicts in AD.
My problem now is that I cannot create an AD-integrated DNS zone on either of the DCs in the Domain. When I try I get an error that the type is wrong. I have manually created the GUID records in the main AD-integrated DNS on the first domain to try and force the connection to work but no dice.
DCdiag shows a slew of RPC server errors which suggests Name/service resolution errors. This even when I have created a secondary DNS zone from the AD-integrated zone.
Any poiters on this would be greatly appreciated.
