I am not sure, long time ago, but the domain surely has a 2003 history

I found,


which seems tp point to the same direction you think, but there is no 
solution there for the migration issue .

I tried
dnscmd \CreateBuiltinDirectoryPartitions (from a Windows host) but it 
does not suceed

I have cloned the dc VM in order to test it in a test seperate environment.

Do you see a chance be creating the partions?, e.g.

Joining a second dc -> no dns partiotions
creating them manually by providing proper values for
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 1572 17. Feb 15:37 provision_dnszones_add.ldif_work
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 2111 17. Feb 15:25 provision_dnszones_add.ldif
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  403 17. Feb 15:09 
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  696 17. Feb 15:05 provision_dnszones_modify.ldif
  and add them
