So I am currently gathering information in regards to renaming our AD domain name from company.net to company.local.
I am reading through the docs on technet.microsoft.com and It states that I would need to prepare the new DNS zones before executing the domain rename.
The question I am asking about is regarding the _msdcs subdomain
I have read posts of forums where people reported issues after renaming their domain and not having the _msdcs subdomain forward lookup zone. Some even reported that an _msdcs subdomain is created but inside
Obvisouly _msdcs is needed So should I create two forward lookup zones like so;
When the domain name rename has been executed and the DC are restarting will they auto generate all the relevent _msdcs records in the new forward lookup zone _msdcs.company.local or will I have to create them myself.
