make sure the DNS on the new DC is pointing to the same DNS server IP that the old DC is using.

make sure you can ping the old DC from the new DC and vice versa.

yes there are both local
there are on the same lan
both are w2k

i think i know what the problem might be when i add a zone . It says select the type of zone you want to create ok

Active Directory- intergrated is greyed out and i think that could be the problem, when adding the additional dc it says not an active directory domain or domain controller.
 but how do i add it when its greyed out. ?

is DNS running on the new server? If no, go ahead and install it. Then try again.
