Quick question --=- In DNS under forward lookup zones
I dont see a _msdsc.domain.local zone

under the forward zone domain.local, I see

Is it important to have the _msdsc.domain.local forward zone, as I am missing it.
How do I put it back?

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
nltest /regdns
verified register this connections address with DNS is selected
restarted netlogon

Nothing is putting the _msdcs.xxxx.local zone back.

dcdiag isnt reporting any issues other than
      Starting test: systemlog
         * The System Event log test
         An Error Event occured.  EventID: 0xC0002719
            Time Generated: 09/26/2012   12:45:12

run repadmin /syncall /force
does not report issues

However some dcs cant replicate with each other when using the command
repadmin /replicate dc-01 dc-02 dc=domain,dc=local

DsReplicaSync() failed with status 8452 (0x2104):
    The naming context is in the process of being removed or is not replicated f
rom the specified server.
