    Question for you all, Phil you might know the answer, you helped me with some DNS problems before :)

    I have two domains, both in the same forest, but disjointed, ie two trees


    domain1.co.uk and domain2.com
    now im trying to load domain2.com as a secondary zone into domain1.co.uk
    and domain1.co.uk as a secondary zone into domain2.com

    in the zone tabs the zones are set to allow zone transfers only to listed name servers, both name servers are listed and pingable


    any ideas folks?

    First thoughts on this Phoenix and I'm sure you've checked this already but to get the ball rolling.


    1. blocked port on a router

    2. has both the DNS servers got A records in each others zones

    now i know i'm gonna be wrong but it's a start :rolleyes:

    Can you ping one address range from the other ...

    Simple I know but they are often the things that trip you up.

    Thanks guys
    everything you mentioned was working, but still no love unfortunatly
    what i have done now is a little simpler
    I have added zone specific forwarders on each DNS server

    so any requests for Zone1 on Server2 redirect to Server1, and visa versa
    seems to be working out ok so far (touch wood)

    thanks for the input guys

    Ryan,

    Sorry I meant to respond to this but wanted to test out in vmware first, never got chance to play though. The conditional forwarding in w2k3 is a great idea though :) It will sort out a good few headaches here when we move to w2k3.

    Would a stub zone work the same way? or deligation (less prefered)

    LOL. Well, I was going to take a stab at this, but you never really said what the problem was. All you did was describe your dns environment.

    What was your actual problem?
