DNS forward lookup zone
Posted on 2006-11-28
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??
