More General questions on DNS admin tool

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.dns (More info?)

Running Win2000 domain servers with dns on them. all service packs.
There are 4 servers. 2 at the admin site. The 3rd server at a second site
and the 4th at a 3rd site.
Under each servers Forward lookup zone it has the following

Forward Lookup Zones
Server3.domain.com
first.domain.com
domain.com
Server1
Server3

Does this mean I have 3 zones?
Why does the word 'first' appear?

Any suggestions, there are some resolution problems. It would be nice to
start fresh.

Regards

    From the looks of it, yes.

    Because someone created the zone.

    What is your AD domain name in ADU&C?
    Is there a zone for that name?

    Post ipconfig /all from the DC.
    Does its primary DNS suffix match the AD domain naem from ADU&C?

    When Ipconfig the domain controllers I receive the correct primary dns
    suffice just as it appears in the ADU&C.
    domain.org

    What are you thinking?
