Active directory Zone replication issue
Posted on 2010-11-24
We have a Windows Server 2003 Forest in our company with an empty forest root, and 6 Child domains. We have DNS Set up for all child domains to replicate the zone to all domain controllers in the forest. A couple of weeks ago the only Domain controller in one of the domains crashed. The Local IT built a new domain controller for this child domain, however didn't set the DNS Zone for that domain to replicate to All DC's in the forest. He recently tried to change it to replicate in the forest after noticing it, but is now receiving an error stating that there's already a copy of the Zone in the ForestDNSZones partition. We need to get the child domain's DNS Zone replicating as it was initially, and I'm wondering what I'd do
I had read a Microsoft Article stating to delete the zone from the Forest Root Doamin DNS Server, and then attempt to promote the Child domain's DNS Zone to replicate to the forest, however i'm a bit paranoid to delete an entire DNS Zone.
IHas anyone come across this issue before, and what did you do to resolve?
