Another failed dns > ad integrated dns attempt...

  1. Ok, so I'm not having much luck with this. I'll elaborate on my situtation
    and hopefully someone could shed some light on what I'm doing wrong.

    I have 2 2003 Servers, both DCs, both currently running DNS (prim/secondary)
    and all is grinding along nicely. We're in mixed mode.

    I delete the secondary zones (forward/reverse) on ServerB, on ServerA I
    change the DNS type to AD Integrated. I try to pick the option to replicate
    to All DNS servers in the domain. When I click ok I get a message along the
    lines of:

    "Replication Error - The name limite for the local computer network card was

    So I end up going back to ascii dns and re-create the secondary zone on
    Server B.

    For this to succeed, must a I be in a Native mode? From the books I've
    read, I was not under the impression this was a requirement. The strangest
    thing is, is after I converted the primary zone back to ascii based zone
    files, I noticed on Server B that my domain popped up there and when I
    checked properties, it said 'AD Integrated' until the next zone transfer and
    it then went back to the original format.

    I would be lieing if I said I wasn't a little frustrated over this, I
    expected it to be a 5 minute job :)

    Thanks in advance,
