DNS incomplete missing _msdcs zone RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I Upgraded domain of 2003 to 2008. I have a domain 2008 R2 and  Active directory integrated with  DNS service. I have 2  domain controllers, and  these domain controllers  have configurated DNS server service, but I have problems with DNS service  and I see that the  DNS server is not complete because  i don´t see the _msdcs zone in forward lookup zones

    Can anybody say me what can i do for recovery  the _msdcs zone? or if I can re-create the DSN server service

    Thanks for your help.

  • You can recreate the missing zone.  The SRV records will be automatically created in the new zone by restarting the NetLogon service on all of your DCs.
