Lost DC now need help with DNS
Posted on 2006-11-28
I need a hand with what I believe is a DNS problem. This is the scenrio. I lost one of four DC's, the one I lost was the first one I setup in the domain, so essentially it was the PDC. I followed microsofts steps of removing the DC from the network, and then reinstalling Windows 2003 EE sp-1. Re added it to the domain, installed DNS and WINS, and then installed AD. It successufully replicated off of my other servers, and it is performing its DNS/WINS/Authentication responibilites again.
But, I do believe that I am having some DNS problems. When installing certain AD Management tools, and domain queries, errors state that it is unable to determine the DC for the domain. In the past this has been an issue of the SOA records. Would anyone know of the procedures to ensure all DNS is running properly?
