DNS - Adding a new host
Posted on 2008-06-11
I have DNS configured on a Windows 2000 Server/SP4 server. We also have DNS configured on a Windows 2003 server. I recently switched DNS servers for our internal network from the Windows 2003 box, to the Windows 2000 box. Apparently, there are some host records on the 2003 box, which are not on the Windows 2000 box and as a result, certain errors are occuring.
When I go onto the Windows 2003 box, I can right click "abc.com" which is located under "Forward Lookup Zones" and choose "New Host (A)." However, when I try and perform that same task on the Windows 2000 box, I have no option to create a new host. Does anybody know why this might occur? I don't see any option to transfer a host file from one machine to the other, and I am a bit confused.
I am not extremely familiar with DNS and I am thinking this is a simple one.
Thanks for all your help in advance!
