_msdcs Zones missing from DNS Server
Posted on 2008-10-09
I have an SBS 2003 server. The dns structure with the content of pdc, gp, DC etc that is normally under the _MSDCS folder < under the DOMAIN.local> Folder is missing. There is a higher level folder _MSDCS.Domain.local folder in the zone that does contain the msdcs folder structure. In attempts to recreate the _msdcs folder under the domain.local folder I have deleted it and recreated it by redoing the deligation and stopping and starting the net logon service, checking the network tcp IP dns register setting and enabling dynamic updates, ipconfig /registerdns. None of these has recreted the substructure. If I do DCDiag tests to test DNS it passes all testes and only complains abount the KCC. netdiag /fix was run but the problem persists. I need to migrate the server to a different box and am worried that if I get to migrating the AD I will run into problems.
