Win2k DNS Cached Zone
Posted on 2001-06-06
We have two web servers running on Windows 2000 Server and IIS 5.0 in the DMZ, and these two servers are running ADS, now I added another box to the DMZ, running Windows 2000 Server and IIS 5.0 as well. But since I decided not running ADS on web servers anymore, this box did not joined the domain, just a workgroup instead. I configured the primary standard DNS for all it's authorative zones, and this DNS uses our ISP's DNS server to go out. Our plan is moving all the sites on the other two boxes to this one, then rebuild them without ADS to reduce the system overhead (is it good or?) After moving sites from one box to this one, everything works fine, except one thing, on this DNS, cached zone does not show up, only two zones, Forward Lookup and Reverse Lookup zones (they are there by default). But from the other box which is in the ADS, we can see the Cached Zone of the DNS on this one! My questions are:
1. The Cached Zone will show up later on or not?
2. Is that because this box is not in ADS?
3. I configure DNS many times before, but all in ADS environments, I had no such a problem, all three zones were there.
Even everything works, I still want to know what is going on.
Thanks in advance.
