Reverse DNS Zones Missing

Posted on 2008-11-11
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have two DC's on which I was trying to fix replication problems. All this led me back to DNS. In all my rooting around in DNS, the Reverse DNS Zones got blown and are missing in both DC's. I keep getting "Zone Not Loaded by DNS Server" on both servers. I even restores the System State from two days ago to no avail.   I have tries to create a new Zone but the setup won't allow text. I have tried netdiag /fix with no results.

Does anyone have any idea what I can do?

    Hello everyone.
    I fixed the problem! Deleted the reverse dns zones and built the reverse dns zones from scratch.
