my site with one SBS 2003 domain controller seems to have lost its gc record in the dns.  dcdiag /fix fails on fsmo fails on gc.
Did metadata clean up, stop and restarted netlogon.

I have goes as far as to seize the role.

How to I recreate the gc record in dns ?

Is your DNS suffix correct on the problematic DC ?
Seen this problem before a few years back and it was related to a DNS suffix mismatch.

MS had also an article about it but seems to be missing.
