  • Deleted Active Directory integrated DNS comes back after restart

    Hello,

    I have 3 AD integrated DNS zone which I deleted. Every time I restart one of my domain controllers, these zones come back again and again. How can get rid of this? I am running Windows 2003 SP1

    Thank you
    S.

    This is a design of AD when it comes to the _Msdcs zones, is that what you are talking about?

    What you could to do is make one server authoritative and then it will replicate out from that authoritative DC to the rest of the DC's. I would do it with the one that holds the FSMO roles.

    Do a MS TechNet search on making a DC authoritative.

      I'm not sure where the TS is talking about.
      Can you explain a bit more?

        No it is not a msdcs zone. It is just a normal DNS zone which is integrated. I have 12 DCs in my domain. If I make one DC authorative and then replicate, if some changes happen at other DCs (ie new user) then it will be lost.

          I believe that you can tell it that only DNS will be authoritative.

          Something along these lines
