Issue with replicating subdomain in forest error: The Name limit for the local computer network adapter card was exceeded
Posted on 2011-05-11
We have a Domain forest as follows:
company.com -> forest root (empty
division1.company.com - > sub domain with users in it
the DNS Zone for division1.company.com IN division1.company.com is working properly, however the root domain company.com has an active directory integrated zone for division1.company.com that isn't getting updated. I checked on the root domain's DNS Server, and this active directory zone is set to replicate to all DNS servers in the forest, however I checked the DNS Server of the subdomain division1.company.com, and the replication was set to only replicate its' zone to other DNS servers in its' own domain. This explains why we aren't getting zone updates in the other domains, or on the root for this specific zone division1.company.com
From what i've read on microsoft, all I need to do is delete the zone on the root, then change the zone in the subdomain to replicate through the forest.. The problem is when I go to delete the zone from the root domain DNS server, it tells me that if I delete it from this dns server, it will be deleted from all other DNS Servers in Active directory, my fear is that i'll wipe out the working division1.company.com zone in the subdomain..
Anyone run in to this issue before?
