dns management console on one system doesn’t see zones

On one of our domain controllers when we bring up the dns manager the forward and reverse zones are gone for both integrated active directory dns servers. On the other server, we can see all of the zones correctly on both servers. Nslookup has verified that the dns service is working fine on both systems. How can I get the dns manager to work properly again on the first system? It was working fine last week. Both of these servers are running win2k sp4.

    Concur with 'ramheka' the MMC (Microsoft Management Console) has a corrupted DNS snap-in. There are many ways to get to the point where things stop dislaying. There is one good way to get back to normal. Replace the 'snap-in' for DNS and you should be back at the default views.

    You were right. When I open dns from within mmc the zones are all there. Unfortunately, it doesn't show the other server. Is there a way to replace the regular dns manager without doing a re-install of all of dns? If not, I will show my techs this workaround. This was much better advice than I was getting from the support group we have for colleges in this state. They wanted me to recreate the zones with the broken manager. The whole idea of that seemed wrong to me. Thanks.
