You can configure the DNS Server service to use Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to store zone data. This makes it possible for the DNS server to rely on directory replication, which enhances security, reliability, and ease of administration.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 4515
Source: Microsoft-Windows-DNS-Server-Service
Version: 6.1
Symbolic Name: DNS_EVENT_DP_ZONE_CONFLICT
Message: The zone %1 was previously loaded from the directory partition %2 but another copy of the zone has been found in directory partition %3. The DNS Server will ignore this new copy of the zone. Please resolve this conflict as soon as possible.

If an administrator has moved this zone from one directory partition to another this may be a harmless transient condition. In this case, no action is necessary. The deletion of the original copy of the zone should soon replicate to this server.

If there are two copies of this zone in two different directory partitions but this is not a transient caused by a zone move operation then one of these copies should be deleted as soon as possible to resolve this conflict.

To change the replication scope of an application directory partition containing DNS zones and for more details on storing DNS zones in the application directory partitions, please see Help and Support.

Resolve

Delete a zone copy

If an administrator has moved this zone from one directory partition to another, this may be a harmless, transient condition. In this case, no action is necessary. The deletion of the original copy of the zone should soon replicate to this server.

If there are two copies of this zone in two different directory partitions but this is not a transient condition, delete one of the copies as soon as possible to resolve the conflict. For more information, see "Event ID 4515 is logged in the DNS Server log in Windows Server 2003" (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/867464/en-us).

Verify

Ensure that Event IDs 4523 and 4524 are being logged and that no events in the range 4000 to 4019 appear in the Domain Name System (DNS) event log.
