I use Windows 2003 DNS to resolve names on my local LAN and domain (abc.com). Our partner company (xyz.com) has its own network totally independent of ours with its own Windows DNS. Our offices are linked together via data circuit and can reach each others network. We (abc.com) want to be able to view their intranet site for which the address records are part of their DNS server. How can we replicate the intranet site records to our DNS server?

Easiest way is to set up a conditional forwarder to send any DNS requests within xyz.com to the xyz.com DNS server.  This can be done from your DNS management console.

- right-click on the DNS server, then Properties.
- Select Forwarders tab
- Click New
- Enter DNS domain (xyz.com)
- Ok
- Add DNS IP addresses for this domain

Ok out, and that should be it.

It doesn't replicate, but it will resolve the names.  If you require replication, their server needs to be configured to all zone transfers to your server, then you can set it up as a secondary zone on your server.
