dns Forward Lookup Zones subfolders missing

dns Forward Lookup Zones subfolders missing

I have installed w2k server and sp3. After configuring the dns server as described in "How to setup a DNS server for your LAN" in this forum. The dns service was up and running. Nslookup command replayed right answer.

I wander why there is no subfolders in Forward Lookup Zones under the server.domain.fi. Normally there should be folders like _msdcs, _sites, _tcp and _udp.

When I tried to connect to the PDC with Windows XP Pro I got an error which pointed to those missing folders.

I uninstalled the DNS server once and installed it again but the error still remains.

What to do next?

RE: dns Forward Lookup Zones subfolders missing

I too am having the same issue, I have uninstalled DNS, and reinstalled it, but those sub folders are still missing, and dcdiag fails because of this.


RE: dns Forward Lookup Zones subfolders missing

Just thought you would like to know, the subfolders appeared after a short while.
