Using current version of BIND and Win2K3 AD with DNS.
Question: Is there more to delegating than just adding the 6 subzone records?
We are setting up AD using Win2K3. We have an existing Linux DNS server. We will delegate
all DDNS for SRV records from the Linux DNS server to the Win2K3 DNS server.
According to various sources all we need to do is create the delelgation records on the
These are the records we have entered into the Linux DNS server.
_msdcs.domain.org IN NS WinDNS.domain.org.
_sites.domain.org IN NS WinDNS.domain.org.
_tcp.domain.org IN NS WinDNS.domain.org.
_udp.domain.org IN NS WinDNS.domain.org.
DomainDnsZones.domain.org IN NS WinDNS.domain.org.
ForestDnsZones.domain.org IN NS WinDNS.domain.org.
In addition, the Linux DNS server will have the A and PTR records which point to
According to the various sources, we can test this first step by performing the following on
The response back should be something like
But instead we are gettting the response back
*** LinuxDNS.domain.org can't find _msdcs.domain.org: Non-existent domain
Same results when using the other sub-domains.
Question repeated: Is there more to delegating than just adding the above records?
We understand that by the time this project is complete we will have created these new zones
on the Win2K3 server but is it reasonable to assume this first step can be tested as shown
before the zones are installed.
Is the underscore in the sub-domain creating a problem in BIND?
