delete and reinstall DNS
Posted on 2006-06-13
I am having client connection issues in a small W2000 server domain with Active Directory enabled and I believe they are DNS related. I want to delete/reinstall DNS but am thoroughly confused by the instructions given in KB 294328. For instance “Go to the properties of the DNS zone files and change them to be a "Standard Primary"”. Where are these properties? In similar fashion, it states “3. Delete the object in Active Directory Users and Computers. 4. On the View menu, click Advanced Features, expand the System folder, click MicrosoftDNS, and then delete the zone file objects.” I don’t have any Advanced Features button in Users and Computers. Where is this stuff?
This all seems so convoluted. Can’t I just remove DNS from the add/remove windows components window? And add it back?
How should I proceed?
