DNS Error Event ID 4007

By Computer Geek ·
I have recentlly created a new domain for our company only consisting of a Windows 2003 Server (Standard) as the DC and a Windows 2003 Enterprise Server with Enterprise Exchange on it.
DNS had some issues that I was able to resolve but I still am getting an Event ID 4007 which states:
he DNS server was unable to open zone _msdcs.<domainname>.com in the Active Directory from the application directory partition ForestDnsZones.<domainname>.com. 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.
I have attempted to reload it but that did not resolve the error. Any suggestions?

If this event occurs after a reboot of your DC, don't worry about it.

You can do some tests to verify the status of your DNS.

Run DCDIAG /e /test:DNS

if errors occur, try running

nltest /DSREGDNS on all your DC's

and of course, manually verify if the _msdcs zone exists in your DNS

Reinstalled DNS and that fixed the issue.
