Currently I'm working with a Windows 2000 Single-Label Domain. While
doing routine maintenance, I noticed that the AD records within the
forward lookup zone had never been created (I didn't setup the server).
I removed the forward lookup and I've followed countless methods to
get these records to be recreated.

If at all possible, I'm trying to avoid dcpromo'ing the DC and re
promoting it. This would cause way to much haywire and mayhem than I
wish to deal with.

While running Netdiag /fix, I encounter quite a few errors within the
DNS section. When I run netdiag /test:D ns /v /fix, I get the
following:

[FATAL] Fix Failed: netdiag failed to re-register missing DNS

[FATAL] No DNS servers have the DNS records for this DC

The command completed successfully

---------------------------------------------------

I realize that most of the errors are due to the fact the AD entries
are missing, but isn't netdiag suppost to recreate these? I've tried
ipconfig /flushdns followed by ipconfig /registerdns. I've tried net
stop netlogon && net start netlogon. I've tried deleting the
netlogon.dns file and restarting the service.

I'm completely stumped as to why this isn't working. Any help would be
appreciated and I thank you greatly in advance.

I apologize, but I've resolved the issue myself. While netlogon didn't
update the dns records dynamically (dymanic updates were enabled), it
did create a netlogon.dns file in %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config. I just
deleted the zone, recreated it using a file instead of AD, stopped dns,
dropped the contents of the netlogon.dns file into the new dns zone
file and restarted the dns server.

dns server restarted and all the AD records were recreated.
