The Active Directory integrated DNS zone _msdcs.DOMAINNAME.lan was not found
Posted on 2011-09-19
I have just installed a Server2008R2 into an existing Server2003 domain.
I have promoted this a DC and installed the DNS role.
I can confirm that DNS is working properly on the OTHER DC in the domain.
My problem is, that if I configure IP4 properties to point to own DNS its applying settings for 20 minutes! When running the Best Practice Analyzer for DNS it tells me that:
"The Active Directory integrated DNS zone _msdcs.ok-snacks.lan was not found"
I can confirm that there is not much written in this zone but it looks idential to the zone on the old DC.
Can anyone helps me out WITHOUT just pointing to some BP articles from Microsoft? :-)
