Changing Zone Replication Scope
Posted on 2010-08-24
This question is an update from a previous post.
Two 2003 Servers: A and B
A- Original DC with FSMO roles, DHCP
B- New DC with DNS added after DC install.
Created matching Zone on B. Everything replicated except A records for domain.
Errors ensued in Server B DNS event log.
Replication Errors in Server A Directory Service Event Logs.
I realize upon closer inspection that Server B Zone properties has the Zone Replication Scope set to: To all DOMAIN CONTROLLERS (third option) where Server A is set to all DNS Servers (second option). I understand that the third option is chosen when you are using a mixed environment with WIN 2000 controllers.
Can I just change the setting to option 2 on Server B and see what happens or do I need to uninstall DNS and reinstall? I don't want to mess up Server A. Help really needed and Error logs available upon request.
