Ok, a few questions I have a windows2k/xp network.  

The problem:
I  have an internal DNS server and a DHCP server(windows 2000).
Name resolution works great withn network (192.168.1.0). But when you try to resolve names that are in my second network (192.168.2.0), it doesnt work.

Questions:

1. I heard that you have to use DHCP in order for this to work?  Is this true? I'm using that as well.
2. Does having a windows 2000 DNS server automatically take control of name resolution
3. What used to do name resolution before Windows 2000 DNS came along?

Thanks

you don't need a dhcp server to makes this work....

what you have to do is create a forward and reverse lookup zone for 192.168.2.0 and add all the records for that zone....

then configure each client in 192.168.2.0 to use the dns server in 192.168.1.0

Ok, so in the forward zone I do a mapping of host names to IP names.  Kind of like a hosts file?

But what do I do in the reverse zone?

Thanks man

in the reverse lookup zone you would do the same.... create a reverse lookup zone with the ip of the subnet the add ptr records .... or just create the reverse zone, then select 'create associated ptr record' when you create a record in the forward lookup zone....

also, enable dynamic updates for the zones and also check 'register this connections addresses' in the advanced tcp/ip dns settings....if you do this after you create the forward and reverse lookup zones, win2k and xp clients can update dns themselves.....
