No I would just like to see one of the objects you are trying to add to
your new DC. I take it you are doing something like this

Export the data from your production DC and then importing the data into
your test DC.

You have said what you are exporting the data with, but in what form,
is it an ldif or csv or what ?

The reason I ask is that there are some attributes that do not get
exported as standard or are possibly in a form that cannot be used.

Try checking this way:

host -t soa <YOUR_DNS_DOMAIN>


host -t ns <YOUR_DNS_DOMAIN>
