upon rebooting the PDC emulator, FSMO AD controller, it takes about 10 minutes for the system to boot. During that time, havoc tends to reign. In the event view I found the event id 4515 and follow the kb link to this
Event ID: 4515
Event Source: DNS
Event Type: Warning
Event Description: The zone contoso.com was previously loaded from the directory partition ForestDnsZones.contoso.com
but another copy of the zone has been found in directory partition DomainDnsZones.contoso.com
. The DNS Server will ignore this new copy of the zone. Please resolve this conflict as soon as possible.
The problem Im having are these
1) I'm showing the _msdcs zone getting previously loaded from the MicrosoftDNS zone but it finds the 2nd one in the ForestDNSZone. It says its ignoring the forest and running with the MicrosoftDNS
"The zone _msdcs.corp.tnpride.com was previously loaded from the directory partition MicrosoftDNS but another copy of the zone has been found in directory partition ForestDnsZones.corp.tnprid
e.com. The DNS Server will ignore this new copy of the zone. Please resolve this conflict as soon as possible. "
2) in ADSI edit, when I try to connect to Distinguished Name or Naming Context 'DC=MicrosoftDNS.DC=mydoma
in,DC=com it says 'Directory object not found'
3) There is a MicrosoftDNS inside of the DomainDNS but is doesn't have the _msdcs in it.
I'm not to keen on deleting the one in the ForestDNS if I can't find a copy somewhere else
Not really sure what to do
