DNS - 2 internal domains - how to get them to work together

Hello there.

Two local W2003 domains. One on 10.10.1.1, one on 10.10.2.1 ... both are totally seperate domains (myCompany1.local, myCompany2.local)

The both have seperate ADs and seperate DNS servers. Both DNS are AD-ingetrated at the moment.

I would like DNS1 to talk to DNS2.

They can ping each other - it's I'm just not too sure how to set them up to trust and use each other (forwarders??)

Thanks,

S.S.

Create a delegated zone on each DNS server for the opposite domain.  You can also use conditional forwarding to accomplish the same thing.

You can also create a stub zone in each DNS to the other DNS this is a new function available in w2k3 that does not require replication

"Create a delegated zone on each DNS server for the opposite domain"

Could I be really dumb and say how/which options ? (from the DNS MMC ?)

S'ok - sorted it - created Secondary Zones ... i get it ... thanks for that !

I think stub zones are better (after reading) but I got one side using 2000 and I dont want to confuse myself at this time - if I had pure 2003 I would implement joedoe58's idea
