DNS Server and Active Directory

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

Hi,

I have some problem with DNS Server in W2K AD. It is a single domain
environment and active directory is installed. The previous
configuration is not done by me.

I couldn't understand why the DNS in Network Connection setting(TCP/IP)
is pointed to ISP, which does not provides SRV records, yet the current
AD still works. There is no DNS Server service currently installed.

The problem arise when I try to migrate the 2000 Server AD to 2003 AD.
I try to extend the schema, join the 2003 server to 2000 domain, and
transfer the FSMO roles.

Unexpected things happens. There is no DNS Server service that provides
SRV records, and therefore the joining of 2003 AD failed, with error
message indicating SRV record cannot be found. I try to install DNS
Server service in Windows 2000 Server. After installation, I found out
there is no zones configured in forward lookup zones. I created one,
and enabled dynamic updates, as some guides says, then proceed to
netdiag /fix. But it returned error and the four lines that is suppose
to be in the DNS entries:
_msdcs
_sites
_tcp
_udp
doesn't come out. I am lost and I have no idea how should I manually
create DNS entries so that the Active Directory can recognize it, and
to facilitate my 2003 server to join the 2000 domain.

Can any of you guide me how to setup the DNS Server services with
Active Directory already in place? I can't demote the Active Directory
since there are users and policy, permission, etc.

Thanks.
