DNS zone _msdcs.domain.com was not found


The Active Directory integrated DNS zone _msdcs.domain.com was not found.


  • Create a zone called "_msdcs.domain.com"
  • Make it Active Directory integrated and allow only secure updates. Click Finish.
  • Go into the zone properties,change the replication scope to "All DCs in the Forest"
  • Delete the _msdcs folder under intdom.com
  • Run an ipconfig /registerdns
  • net stop netlogon && net start netlogon

    This should populate the zone shortly
