Zone Transfer Authority changed - now no SRV records

Hello,

I am trying to find out what happened to our DNS records after a ill-advised change regarding zone transfers. The zone transfer authority was changed on our DC running Windows 2003 under a Windows 2000 domain. This has made the DNS records for our single label domain name we use to add workstations disappear. Worse, all of our permissions were tied to to this domain name as well.

I have restarted NetLogin and restarted the DC but that didn't work. I currently don't have a netlogin.dns file and running dcdiag.exe showed no errors for the single label domain. It's like it just disappeared. I can provide logs and error message if I can find them.

Thanks!

Actually, after reading Unable to resolve NetBIOS Domain Name I think I may be on the right track. I need to find out what is going on with NetBIOS.

Access DNS management nterface and recheck the zone.  AD dns zones are AD integrated.

How many DCs do you have? If it is missing, add it back in
_msdtc.youdomain
Yourdomain and make sure it is AD integrated.

If your DNS server is not on a DC, you need to make sure to adjust the permissions to allow non-DC access to the AD I the grated zones.

I have two DCs. I have a zone(example.example.com) and I see the _msdtc folder under that. I have added the single label as a domain below that but restarting Net Login did not populate it. Am I missing a step?

Are you using AD integrated?

Not clear what was done that lead to this state.

The link provided is an excellent article on how to maintain DNS entries. It had the necessary information for me.
