Having a problem knowing what to do with the errors below,
from NETDIAG

[FATAL] File \config\netlogon.dns contains invalid DNS
entries.
[FATAL] No DNS servers have the DNS records for this DC
registered.

I get these errors when running NETDIAG on the DNS server
for the domain, which is one of two DCs for the domain.

I have removed and resinstalled DNS already.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your advice. Unfortunately it didn't resolve
the problem.

I reviewed the articles recommended. Made a few
adjustments (Enabled Append primary and connection
specific DNS suffixes, Append parent suffixes of the
primary DNS suffix) restarted DNS server, ran Netdiag,
same result.

Below is the output from Netdiag:
DNS test . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Failed
[WARNING] The DNS host name 'zack_dc1.Zack.Loc' valid
only on Windows 2000 DNS Servers. [DNS_ERROR_NON_RFC_NAME]
[FATAL] File \config\netlogon.dns contains invalid
DNS entries. [FATAL] No DNS servers have the DNS
records for this DC registered.

The messages are confusing in that the DNS server running
on the domain controller "zack_dc1" clearly has records
for "zack_dc1".

Below are the contents of netlogon.dns:

This is not confusing it is clear as a bell, RFCs only allow underscores as
the first character in a domain name. You will have to set DNS to accept all
names due to the underscore in zack_dc1.
In the DNS management console right click on the DNS server, properties then
advanced tab. For Name checking select "All names"
