    When we upgrade a PDC to 2000 that is hosting Web sites as well as Email it seems the SRV records don't create right in dns which causes an inability for other 2000 machines to join the new domain. In doing some research I found some stuff on the four special zones _msdcs, _sites, _tcp , _udp. I created _msdcs.ourdomain.net and it appeared all the SRV records as well as the CNAME record created themselves properly. If I create all four of these zones, will all my 2000 aware machines use these zones to join ourdomain.net. We do have both Primary and secondary DNS servers registered with the internic. These also carry the name on ourdomain.net. Will these above zones keep our intranet seperate from our internet presence? Since we have some issues with the upgrade beyond the DNS problems we haven't tried to join another DC as we will need to do the upgrade again. If the dns records are not create right this next time should I create the above zones?

    I hope this makes some since to whoever may read it as my dns experience is mostly booklearned theory.
