Running a new machine with Windows 2008 Server Standard.
Promoted to a DC (dcpromo) all went well.
Connecting computers to the network -> Major Problem

I have found out that the build of the DNS is not done right. I am missing
several records in the _msdcs.domain.local

Is there any way to rebuild this or do I need to demote the server and
promote again ??
It's the last thing I want to because I have to redefine all users and all
rights again

PLEASE HELP

Hello Johan,

During promotion youhave choosen to make the server also DNS server? Or did
you use anotherone for DNS? Please post an unedited ipconfig /all from the
DC/DNS and a problem client.

Best regards

You can rebuild. Start by either

net stop netlogon && net start netlogon
-or-
netdiag /fix

If this doesn't seem to clear it up, you can delete _msdcs.domain.local and
domain.local. Then recreate both zones and then repeat one of the two steps
above

Problem solved.

The serverwas not installed by myself so I demoted the server and ran
dcpromo again.
Windows will not setup the DNS correctly if the primary LAN has a
169.254.x.x address, Fixed or not it won't work.

Changed the subnet and rerun dcpromo solved the problem

Hello Johan,

Nice to hear that you got it. Don't know what you mean with primary LAN.
But having a DC with more then one ip address will create new problems, so
if you have this kind of configuration, we should maybe check your system
again.

At least run the support tools "dcdiag /v" and "repadmin /showrepl" in an
elevated command prompt if you have additional DCs in the network.

Also your server should only use Domain internal DNS server, so NO external,
like your ISPs, on the NIC.

You shouldn't get any error.

Best regards
