I have been trying to get Windows .Net 2003 Server working with BIND 
9.2.1 for months now to no avail. Anytime I try to setup the domain I 
always get 1 of 2 messages

_msdcs.empire.intranet Dynamic DNS support Failed


cannot find SOA record for _ldap._gc.tcp._msdcs.empire.intranet

If anyone is willing to help me with this, I will publish a Online 
document with exact specifications
