Adding another Windows DNS to an existing DC does not show the AD integraded zones. How can I configure that?

I have added a DNS Role on an existing DC with several other DC's an DNS Server available. I have installed the DNS via Add/Remove Programms but how do I see the AD integraded zones in DNS Management Console? Do I just have to wait replication or are there other steps necessary?

    you need to set the replication scope of your dns zones.... eg goto the properties of one of your zones, right click, general, replication.Ensure this iset the replciate to all DC's in the domain (or better)

excluding that - wait! ive found DNS info will take 15-30 minutes to come across after promoting a new DC

Have you rebooted the box once after it was promoted as a DC

Have you configured the new one for AD-Integrated and secure updates? Can you restart DNS? Are there any error messages in the DNS eventvwr? is it listed on the Name Servers tab in DNS on the other servers? Can you install Windows Support Tools and run a netdiag & dcdiag from cmd - does it pass?

Thanks for the replies! The next day after I have remounted the DNS Server in the DNS Manager all zone were there! So sometimes waiting a night is better than thinking to much.
