Added new DC w/DNS now it shows all DNS records for all servers. Prexisting servers show limited info

If I look at my new server it shows itself and the other 2 DC's in DNS reflecting all records.  If I go to one of the pre-existing servers they show only this...

Forward Lookup Zones
_msdcs.xxx.local
 xxx.local  

Server                            Host (A)                                     xxx.xx.x.x
(same as parent)         Start of Authority (SOA)          [4567] mymainserver          static
(same as parent)         Wins Lookup                            [IP of main server]                static
(same as parent)         Name Server                            [New server]                          static
(same as parent)         Name Server                            [Main server]                         static
(same as parent)         Name Server                            [Existing backup]                  static

The previous (2) are Windows 2008 and the new on is 2012R2.

Check your event logs on each DC.

It sounds a bit like you might have a conflict - for example the zone configured to be loaded from two different locations.

Hmm only errors really seen are DFRS events forced replication completes successfully and all repadmin utils reflect no issues, hmm... so conflict would be reflecting in some manner so think really all is well but for some reason my two pre-existing are not reading all data, Believe if I take down my new one temporarily I would be hosed.. :P will have to test that

Introducing the "443 Security Simplified" Podcast

This new podcast puts you inside the minds of leading white-hat hackers and security researchers. Hosts Marc Laliberte and Corey Nachreiner turn complex security concepts into easily understood and actionable insights on the latest cyber security headlines and trends.

You could use ADSI Edit and connect to specfic DCs to see which DNS records are actually present on each as a verification.  You could also use nslookup and direct it to use specific servers.

If tests like repadmin and dcdiag /v /test:dns all show fine, then it must be something with the display within the MMC snapin (which is what the DNS Management console is).  You might try going to File > Options, and deleting the files (I had to do this once after a domain rename to get things to display correctly, but I don't remember if it was the DNS snapin or another).

Thanks again.. well the deletion of files worked on one not the 2nd kind of odd, but maybe give it a while try again.  So looks like light at the end, I believe I really had no issue in the first place as no DNS in systems are pointing to that one yet so, it does appear only to be "viewing"

Yet my ADSI EDIT only shows root servers in CN=MicrosoftDNS for all 3 of my systems.. heh.  No issues realistically but puzzles abound...

For ADSI Edit, make sure you are connecting to the right container.  It will be different depending on the replication scope of the zone (DomainDnsZones, ForestDnsZones, default).
