Hi all, I'm new so go easy please!! I'm trying to work my way through the 70-291 book and have got stuck. on page 5-62/63 it talks you through creating a zone to be delegated, then adding host records to it and then creating a delegation. So, I can create the new zone on server02 quite easily (sub.domain1.local). Adding host (A) record to it is pretty simple too, I add these for both server01 and server02. It then tells me to log on to server01 and create a new delegation with the same name. However, I can't finish this wizard because at the end it tells me this zone already exists and that I should delete it first. It might be that Windows Server 2003 SP1 automatically assumes that a new primary zone on another server will automatically be a delegate of the initial primary zone if parts of the name space are the same. When I expand the domain1.local zone info there is a new folder called 'sub'. Am I just talking rubbish and I should move on, or am I just doing something stupid? Thank you!
