I have one domain - spark.local and another domain apple.local that have no trust between them.

Is there any way that I can seetup the DNS on the spark.local domain so that it has a host record to resolve to a server on the apple.local domain?

I can't use a host record?

How are these two domains connected?  Are they on a LAN or different sites or what?  The main question is how does traffic from one domain get to the other.  You can surely have an A record in one domain pointing to a computer in the other, but unless there's a route from one domain to another then you're not getting there.

I have a router between the two that routes the traffic.

The problem I am having is that when I go to add the host record for the remote server, it is putting it on the present domain and it can't change that.

You can set forwarders in the DNS server for the specific domains.

So if I just go into forwarders and add this other domains DNS server, it should work?

Assuming you're on a Windows DNS server... Go to the apple.local DNS server, right-click, Properties, on the apple.local forward lookup Zone, click the Zone Transfers tab, check the Allow Zone Transfers box, and then select Only to the following servers and add in the IP of the DNS server for spark.local.

Now go to the spark.local DNS server, right-click the forward lookup zone folder and select, New Zone... and create a secondary zone if you're on Windows 2000, a stub zone if you're on Windows 2003.
