Hello, during the instalation of DNS on my Win2k server luck would have it,
crash. (the crash was caused by a faulty hardware that has been fixed)
now it appears that my GroupPolicies havent been working because the DNS
system is not quite running at full force, specificly the _ldap._tcp entries
are not there.
Is there a way to manualy have it recreate these essential files for AD?

Then Kevin replied below:

Would you post the following?
ipconfig /all
AD domain name from ADUC
List of forward lookup zones in DNS

I will be comparing the Primary DNS suffix from the ipconfig /all with the
AD domain name and the forward lookup zone name. These three must match
exactly and should not be a single-label name. I will also be verifying that
the local DNS server is only used in the ipconfig /all and that there are no
external DNS servers listed.
