Windows 2003 Active Directory - DNS records deleted and requires restore
Posted on 2012-03-31
Hello to everyone,
I have a bit of an odd situation here and looking for suggestions.
We've got two servers (e.g DC1 & DC2) in an Active Directory, both are domain controllers.
For a while, the replication between the two stopped working, however no one failed to notice the issue. DC1 holds all FSMO roles.
Because of various problems, someone went to DC1 and performed a DNS Scavenge which deleted most of the 'Forward Lookup Zones -- _msdcs.dlm.local' entries and this has cause a number of problems.
The DC2 DNS server however does still contain the entries deleted on DC1's DNS Server.
My question is how can I copy the 'Forward Lookup Zones -- _msdcs.dlm.local' from DC2 to DC1 without causing any problems, and then start the replication between the DC's again?
I've tried netdiag, dcdiag fix, but they have failed to provide a working solution.
Any help or suggestion is much appreciated.
