_msdcs folder creation
Posted on 2009-04-21
I have been trying to repair a Integrated DNS Server on our Windows 2008 domain. The issue has been that the _msdcs folder was missing from foward lookup zones, it was list under our domain.com.au forward lookup zone but not as a zone.
What I did was recreate the zone and then manually input the 3 NS Servers pointed there interface at themselves 127.0.0.1 and did the common thing that I have ssen about this which is.
net stop netlogon
net start netlogon
After a bit I slowly but surely saw is started to rebuild itself. However now that it has I am only left with the following structure
And there subdirectories. What am I missing that the domain and gc folder will not create automatically. I have tried a dcdiag /fix, I have also tried pointing the 3 dc's interfaces back to there own IP addresses.
If anyone can help asap that would be great.
