Configuring DNS and Agteway in a test environment
Posted on 2006-03-24
here is the senerio:
I am trying to run the MIIS gal sych walk through. I have 2 servers newly created. 1 server has 2003 server ent, DC, dns,MIIS, exchange 2003.
The other server has 2003 server ent, exchange, DC.
2 total separate forests.
my problem is that I cant get thenm too to talk to each other.
I created an inside lan connection server 1 172.25.1.5,255.255.0.0,DNS 172.25.1.5
second server 172.25.1.6,255.255.0.0,172.25.1.5
What do I put for the gateway? Would the wrong gateway cause it to not work?
I use my companies gate way which is 172.16.0.2
Im thinking that I cant use that becuase its not on the same subnet.
the walk thru says to make 2 primary dns records so the to active ditrectory forests can talk to each other.
I put these in Primary zones and still cannot get the 2 server to talk to each other. Whwen I try to connect to Fabnoa domain from Connoa which hiosts MIIS, I get server down or cannot find network connection.
Is there anything other than adding them to rpimary zones I need to do? I have deleted the zones many times and redone it. Do I need to reload AD so it syncs to it again?
