DNS on new Domain Controller

Current root: Root
Current child domain: Child1

Created new 2008 child domain: Child2
DNS wasn't replicating even through AD Integrated so added domain manually.
Rebooted and everything populated for Root, but Child1 is not showing under expansion of Root and it should.  Only show Child2 and I can't remove Root and hope it resyncs as it says will remove from ALL domain controllers.  Help!  How can I get Child1 to replicate into DNS?

Create the DNS zone by going through the steps of creating another AD integrated zone
To be honest, you might want to demote and re-promote this server. It sounds like you have some replication issues that need to be addressed and what you're doing could exacerbate them a bit. Do a demote, re-promote, then check to see if the zones get replicated properly. If they don't, start diagnosing the replication issue with DCDiag and replmon.

ok tried demoting didn't work so ran metatdata cleanup and get:

error 0x2162(the requested domain could not be deleted because there exist domain controllers that still host this domain) but the domain controller has been removed from disk so I'm not sure how to get rid of it so I can rebuild?
