DNS Configuration for a stable network

I have three servers in my DMZ.

1 Web Server / External DNS / DHCP
1 Exchange 2003 Server / External DNS
1 Internal DNS Server

I have been having many DNS issues, and I am trying to resolve them. Below are three links to screenshots of the DNS.

When I run dnsreports.com or nslookup, I get many errors.

Could someone please help me work through these issues.

Thanks,
Jake

I appreciate your info, but I would be careful showing detailed information about your site.  Some could use this information to make it easier to hack.  Your problem may be with a misinterpretation of DNS setup.  I see you have a www. host A record.  Is this because your internal domain is the same as an external one?  What do you mean by external DNS?

Can you give examples of errors? One thing I can see already is that you have duplicates of reverse lookup zones. when you specify 192.169.x.x then all subnets under that address will be created automatically. Still I do not think it will create any problem

That is correct the www. host a record is there because my internal dns is the same as the external.

I am pointing my domain to this server for name resolution, it is acting as my NS for the domain.

Some of the errors include not being able to send email to another server in network through exchange.
Problems with Exchange crashing.
Problems resolving requests externally and internally.

Thanks,

Do you list the external server in your dns? If so dont. Only list your internal server in your dns. Tell your internal dns server to not use fowards, but it will still ask a real world dns server for domain lookup that it does not have localy
