    Hi ,

    We have the below error in our newly setup 2003 Domain Controller, it
    generates whenever DNS service is restarted. The errors only shown on 1 DC,
    the other DC do not have the errors. Actually, the DC firstly was setup using
    this Domain DNS name called ‘ADC.sg’. Due to some reason, we demote it and
    re-promote and rename the Domain DNS name as ‘WindowsADC.sg’. So right now
    the DNS event log keep showing this error..

    The DNS server was unable to open zone _msdcs.CPTC.SG in the Active
    Directory from the application directory partition ForestDnsZones.CPTC.SG.
    This DNS server is configured to obtain and use information from the
    directory for this zone and is unable to load the zone without it. Check that
    the Active Directory is functioning properly and reload the zone. The event
    data is the error code.
