DNS replication scope could not be set

I have one forest with one root domain and 4 child domains. By default the _msdcs.root.domain should replicate to all DNS servers in the active Directory forest. But somehow it's set to To all DNS servers in the AD domain, when I tried to change it back to replicate to the forest, it gives me the error " the replication scope could not be set. for more information, see 'DNS zone replication in active directory' in help and support. the error was: the name limit for the local computer network adapter card was exceeded.

i did some research on it. i do not have a stub zone, and the domain partitions are correct. How do I fix the problem?

thanks

Delete it and recreate it.

When you do, give it time to replicate the deletion before you attempt to add it back.

When you create it, it's a Primary Zone, is AD Integrated and will replicate to all DNS servers in the Forest.

Name it _msdcs.rootdomain.com (obviously your domain name would apply).

One last step is to restart Netlogon on all DCs so they reregister.

do i just need to delete it at the root domain or do i need to delete it through out the forest? would there be temp problems once it's deleted? after it's recreated, will it contain all the svr records? and will it replicate to all the child domains?

thanks

oh, i think i need to change it to primary zone, then save the zone file, and delete it, wait it to replicate, then recreate it use the existing zone file.

Sorry for being late.

You just need to delete it on the main DNS server - if the zones are AD Integrated, then they'll delete themselves on the other servers.  This is why I stress to wait for replication to completely remove it before you add it back.

Unless you have static entries in the _msdcs (which I haven't know anyone to do) then there is no need trying to save the zone file.

Hi - i have the same problem. BUT if I delete the _msdcs.domain.local zone do i then have to rebuild all of the sub folders below it? Or will it auto-populate somehow depending on my child domains? I only have 1.
Thanks
