I recently had a windows 2003 DC/DNS server crash on me. I seized all the FSMO roles and cleaned all the metadata of the crashed server.
I am now receiving the following error on the newly promoted DC/DNS server:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: DNS
Event Category: None
Event ID: 4521
Time: 10:11:40 AM
The DNS server encountered error 9002 attempting to load zone . from Active Directory. The DNS server will attempt to load this zone again on the next timeout cycle. This can be caused by high Active Directory load and may be a transient condition.

I have tried all solutions listed when googling this error and nothing has worked.
I open DNS and noticed that the only server listed in DomainDnsZones and ForestDnsZones is the old crashed DC/DNS server. I think this is directly related. My question is, what is the proper way of resolving this issue? Why aren't the other two active DNS servers listed? FYI: I have ensured all A, CNAME records for the crashed server have been removed. I have also verified that it is not listed in the Name Servers tab.
FYI, I currently have two active DCs both are running DNS.
I hope I gave enough details above, I am in desperate need of help! Thanks!
