SBS Server 2003 DNS question

How do I fix this?



Event Type:      Warning
Event Source:      DNS
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      4515
Date:            10/25/2006
Time:            9:16:53 AM
User:            N/A
Computer:      ISSRV1
Description:
The zone indoorsports.local was previously loaded from the directory partition MicrosoftDNS but another copy of the zone has been found in directory partition DomainDnsZones.indoorsports.local. The DNS Server will ignore this new copy of the zone. Please resolve this conflict as soon as possible.
 
If an administrator has moved this zone from one directory partition to another this may be a harmless transient condition. In this case, no action is necessary. The deletion of the original copy of the zone should soon replicate to this server.
 
If there are two copies of this zone in two different directory partitions but this is not a transient caused by a zone move operation then one of these copies should be deleted as soon as possible to resolve this conflict.
 
To change the replication scope of an application directory partition containing DNS zones and for more details on storing DNS zones in the application directory partitions, please see Help and Support.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

I dont' fully understand this page or what I'm trying to accomplish. Therefore I don't know which option to use 1 or 2.  

I can tell you about my environment.

SBS server 2003 with 4 secondary domain controllers that all replicate active directory.

Since this seems to be a flat domain, it doesn't really matter; default if you create a new AD integrated zone is option 2, so you can go for that.

Ok thanks..

Now, I tried running adsiedit.msc and I get a can't be found error.  Will it run on SBS 2003?

That's part of the Support Tools; if you've upgraded your SBS after the installation to SP1, download the current version here:
Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 32-bit Support Tools
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6ec50b78-8be1-4e81-b3be-4e7ac4f0912d&displaylang=en

If you installed from a slipstreamed media, you can use the one from the Tools\Support folder (don't know on which CD this is with SBS).

ok I got ti running.  

Is this change something i can during production hours or should I wait till there are no clients logged in?

oBdACommented:
It shouldn't be a major influence, but just in case it's probably better to wait until after hours; and, as usual with changes like these, make sure you have a current and working backup.

Sorry for the delay.  I plan on getting this done either today or tomorrow and I'll let you know how it goes.
