Windows 2008 DNS Forward Lookup Zone Expired

My 2008 Domain control was down for one day and now its up again, but the DNS Forward Lookup Zones cannot Start.

This is the error I am getting:
The DNS server encountered a problem while attempting to load the zone.  The zone data may not be available in Active Directory, or the zone data is corrupt.

When Going to the Properties of the forward Lookup Zone of my domain, The status: Expired.  There is no Start or Pause button to press.

The Windows 2003 Domain Control, I can view the Forward Lookup Zone.

How do i start the DNS Forwarding Lookup Zone in Windows 2008?

This is what I have on the Event Viewer for DNS Server on Windows 2008:

Warning: Event 4521, DNS Server Service
The DNS server encountered error 9002 attempting to load zone xxx.com from Active Directory.  The DNS server will attempt to load this zone again on the next timeout cycle.  this can be cause by high Active Directory load and may be a transient condition.

Error: Event 4004, DNS Server Service
The DNS server was unable to complete directory service enumeration of zone xxx.com.  This DNS server is configured to use information obtained from Active Directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone with it.  Check that Active Directory is functioning properly and repeat enumeration of the zone.  The extended error debug information (which may be empty) is "000020EF: SvcErr: DSID-020801D, problem 5012 (DIR_ERROR), data-1018".  The event data contains the error.

Hi

Have u checked your database is consistent. check in directory services eventlog for any error message.

This may be your database is inconsistent or DNS zones not loaded properly.

Try to restart Dns services and wait for sometime and check for the zones to load.

Thanks
Prem
