Hi

We have a number of seperate domains within our organisation some of which are not linked in any way.

We need to setup forward lookup zones on domain A to allow resolution of hosts on domain B.   I am planning to configure forward lookup zones to facilitate this.

I am aware on how to install DNS and start the new zone wizard but :-

do I need to have a trust between the domains in order to replicate the DNS database as either a primary or secondary as these servers are not in the same active directory domain.  I guess what I am asking is if I can ping the DNS server I want to copy the zone from and ports 53 and 135 are open will the zone copy to my new DNS server in a different domain?

What other info do I need to configure these zones apart from the 'other domains' dns server IP address and the name of the domain?? Do I need to get onto the source dns server and add our new dns server (in different domain) to its name servers tab??

Thanks

No trust is required.
However you do need to configure the source zone to allow zone transfers. Whether you allow any zone transfers or restrict it to specific IP addresses depends on your security model.
You can add alternative name servers if you wish - I don't always do that though. In this scenario I don't think it will be necessary.
