I can create Forward lookup zones:
Type Primary
Dynamic updates are turned on
Scavenging is turned on
Current forest functional level: Windows 2000 (Is there any way to make it a mixed inviroment?)
If I make the forward lookup zone ADI (Active Directory Intergrated) it will disapear over night.
Now all of my reverse lookup zones are ADI and I have no problem with them
I have about 18 DC on my network, all 2K3 excecpt for 2 of them that are still Server 2000.
Main problem: Zones vanishing when I make them ADI

Do you see any 4515 in DNS Event ID within Windows 2003? Also, Use ADSIEDIT to view the Zones in AD and check whether you see any corrupt AD information in AD DNS. Steps on how to use ADSIEDIT to view DNS Information in AD are provided under article including the solution for 4515. It is a normal csae when you upgrade from 2000 to 2003 as the AD DNS structure for both is quite different.

I ran the command adsiedit.msc and looked in:
DC=Domain name
CN=System
CN=MicrosoftDNS
In here I see all my forward and reverse lookup zones. I do have multiple copies of the lookup zone for my Domain.
Is this normal or should I have only one?
If I should have only one, then how do I determine which one to delete?

If you need to connect to DomainDNSZones or ForestDNSZones you would right click on the "ADSI Edit" level in adsiedit.msc and select "Connect to ...". Then type in a distinguished name (or naming context):

DC=DomainDNSZones,DC=yourdomain,DC=com
Or
DC=ForestDNSZones,DC=yourdomain,DC=com

As above, you should find they contain a MicrosoftDNS folder and any zones loaded into that partition.
