URGENT: MSDCS records registering directly under FWD lookup zone, not under FQDN name space.

I am under the gun and don't have time to research this. You might know the answer off the top of your head!! Need Quick help. Can you help me put the SRV records in the right spot? All X-d out data is my fully qualified domain name.

SRV records are registering in the wrong spot. This is jacking up my active directory and DFS and all other domain services. A picture is worth a thousand words. So, see it for yourself.

Delete both the msdcs and the domain.com zone. Then recreate the zone domain.com. This will put the msdcs folder back under the domain.com zone. What happen is that the msdcs was delegated but deleting both then recreating will fix the problem

Hi Chief,

I just saw that is was you. Delete both zones make sure if they are AD-integrated make sure  you do it on both servers.

Delete the delegation for _msdcs (greyed out folder) and the _mdcs zone, then all service records will register under domain.com.

Mind you, nothing wrong with what you have as long as the NS records in the Delegation are correct.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Excellent:

Good input> I will delete the folders.

There was only one single record on the delgation for _msdcs folder. That record was a same as parent NS record. Other than that, I don't see the other records. Then, under the forward lookup zone msdcs group of records, it appears I have a complete set of SRV records.  Since the delegation is incomplete, I am running into errors 4004 and 4015 DNS, along with problems with network logons, DFSR, access to domain services, ect....

You know what might have caused this guys? I don't want it to happen in the future.

NS records in delegations don't update automatically, which can be a bit troublesome. It may well be that the only reason you ran into a problem was because they were out of date. You may have to open the properties for the delegation to see the NS records (broke my server at home, can't check :)).

Exactly. There have been a bunch of posts that the Msdcs folder have been delegated which causes replication issues.

Not quite sure why MS made it install like that for some domains, seems like a complication most admins in small businesses won't know how to deal with.

Ho hum...

They ought to offer the ability for an author to grant more points for a quick resolve.

SWEEEEET GUYS!!! This did exactly what you said it would do. I will check up on delegations and see what I can do to prevent this in the future.

DARIUSQ, congrats on your first million. Looking forward to seeing you at 10 mill.

Chris, what can I say about your DNS skills?
