Missing _msdcs _sites _tcp _udp

My customer deleted his Active Directory domain in Server 2003. When I
recreated it, the -msdcs, _sites, etc. were not created.

It's been a while since I have had to do one of these type of repairs. How
do I rebuild this?

Thank in advance.

Setting the zone to allow dynamic updates and restarting the netlogon
service should recreate the sub directory.
The default behavior for Win2k3 is to create a separate forward lookup zone
named _msdcs.dnsforestname then make the sub folder in the dnsforestname
zone a delegation.

There are instances when the netlogon service won't create the needed
subfolder and SRV records it should contain.
1. The DC is not using this DNS server for DNS in TCP/IP properties.

2. The dnsforestname is a single-label name, i.e. "domain" instead of
"domain.com"

Single-Label DNS Names

3. The DC's Primary DNS suffix does not match the AD domain name and zone
name.

Name

4. Dynamic updates are disabled on the zone.
5. Netlogon registrations and or dynamic registrations are disabled on the
DC.
