I am getting this error in the Windows Server 2012 Essentials Migration Preparation Tool in Server 2008 Standard.

Error is found in DNS Zone domain.local

The dcdiag passes all the tests.

I cannot find any info specific to 2012, but the 2011 troubleshooting steps do not seem to resolve any issues.

Any help would be great! Thanks.

Ohh ..Try creating a new forward lookup zone ...if it fails then your forest and domain DNS partitions are currupted

Please follow below link and see if the symptomps are similar

Steps to recreate
Using ADSIEdit.msc
 1.Navigate to the CrossRef object for the application partition on a specific DC (CN=Partitions,CN=Configuration,DC=Domain,DC=Com)
 2.Delete the CrossRef object, essentially skipping to step 7 above.
 3.Force replication, validate that the partition is gone.
 4.Restart DNS, the service will re-add the partition.
