Active Directory sites and DNS replication.
Posted on 2009-04-15
I have one domain, I created 6 domain controllers, 2 of the DCs( DCA and DCB) are DNS servers. so the zones (ADIntegrated) were replicated to each DNS.
I created 4 more DCs, but they are DNS servers.
I created 3 AD sites, and put 2 DCs in each site.
on site1 I put DCA and DCB
on site 2 I put DCC and DCD
on site 3 I put DCE and DCF
the 3 sites are in different subnets.
then I installed DNS on the DCs that were not DNS servers( DCC and DCD and DCE and DCF)
I created the forward lookup zone manually on DCC and DCD and DCE and DCF.
Now I want the zone to ve replicated to all of the DNS servers. but when I go to DCA for instance and try to add to Name servers the DCC so that the zone transfer can happen, it gives me an error "an IP associaated with the given name server record can not be found"
Do I need to create a record manually for the DCC in DCA?
any idea on how the zone can be replicated between all DCs automatically?
