DNS with 1 Domain and 2 DC's

I have 2 Servers in 1 Domain, both are DC's

Server is my main server with DNS running on it
Server2 is my second location without DNS running on it.

Both are on AD.

The problem I seem to be having is the server can't reach server2 for DFS. I'm thinking I've got something missing or setup wrong.

What should I do?

Thanks,
Rick

Run dcdiag /s:server /test:DNS for both servers and see what errors it comes up with

I would definitely install DNS on both DC's with AD-integrated zones.  In addition to give you DNS redundancy, it may fix your problem.  Ensure you follow DNS best-practices and point server to itself as the primary DNS and the server2 for secondary.  Do the reverse for the other server.  Only do this after DNS and AD have stabilized and replicated fully.  Also make sure to only use those 2 internal DNS servers for your clients and servers.

All I'm trying to do is get DFS working and I think DNS has something to do with it... You replied to my other post about upgrading to Windows 2003 R2 and I replied to that post about it.

Ever since I installed DNS on the second server I get 1006 and 1030 errors now about every 5 minutes.
