Restoring Server 2003 DNS

I have a 2003 domain that someone deleted many of the default DNS SRV records.  Is there any way to re-generate the SRV records?

The easiest method is to run dcdiag /fix to have the SRV records re-created. Alternatively, restart the Netlogon service.

The other alternative is to try a utility such as DNSSrvRec ( to recreate them for you, but I'd suggest you use this tool only after you try the above two approaches.
