Dear All,

I've recently setup a two-way trust between two completely seperate Active Directory domains.

Both have AD intergrated DNS zones and both are obviously running their own DNS Servers.

What is the best/correct way to enable DNS resolution between the domains? Do I setup a secondary to each DNS zone on the 'other' DNS server? Anything I need to bear in mind in relation to permissions?

Any help/pointers to usefull examples/documents gratefullyreceived

you can load a secondary zone if you wish   or you can add the remote DNS server as forwarder, or you can point to it as a secondary server

Thanks Jay_Jay and brw.

JJ - I know which options are available but which would you choose and is there a 'microsoft' recommended method? I've looked but can't find one.

Also, BRW I think stub zones are only available in 2003 AD?

Looks like 'secondary' zonemay be the way to go....is it just the same method to create a secondary to an AD intergrated zone as it id to a standard?

Thanks again for your advices.

you're right, forgot stub zones are 2003 feature

I should just stick to the 2003 TA i guess :)

anyways, the secondary should work fine. You will have to configure zone transfers from the primary servers in order to receive updates.

You know one thing you could try, I've never thought about creating a primary zone that has just NS records that point to the other server. That's basically all that a stub zone is.
