The problem started with no one being able to log on to the server. I checked all of the settings, ip etc. Unistalled and reinstalled DNS.When I tried to reconfigure I get the same error. Event ID 4000 in the event log. The configure DNS wizard error is "The Forward lookup zone cannot be added to the server. The specified directory partition does not exist.
