    DNS event error 9002

    Just had a chance to go through the event logs of the servers since the last re-boot (this gets tested regularly as our power supply is not one of the best).
    Apart from the usual bits and bobs there are a substantial number of DNS event 9002 - "error 9002 loading zone . from active directory"
    I have found a fix that seems to work i.e. DnsCmd /Config /bootmethod
    This, the forums assure me, will fix the problem until the next re-boot.
    This is obviously a quick fix or it wouldn't come back, so what I want to know is - where is this zone "." it is whingeing about and how can I stop it permanently happening.
    We are running Server 2003 R2 standard edition with SP2 and I have searched both AD and DNS for the errant full stop and cannot find it anywhere.
    Sorry for such a long post

    If I remember correctly zone . is root, top-level, basically the 12 (I think) servers which host DNS for the internet.

    Is your DNS server defined as being authoritative for all zones?
