DNS consiguration question(s)
Posted on 2009-12-22
I have added a new site into my Server 03 AD Domain. Right now there is only one DC in this new site. At this point, this server is providing AD DC, DNS, WINS. DHCP is being handeled by another device in a seperate Domain I am sharing this "Space" with (for now).
I have two other sites: the main site, and a smaller single DC site.
This new site has a pair of linked Riverbed devices between the new site, and the main site.
What I am trying to figure out is:
Network neighborhood from the new DC is SLOW to show me anything. When I look at the list of machines in the domain, this new DC does not show up. I have compared my DNS setup between all three sites, and the only two differences I see are:
The "Other Two" sites have the same set of two external Forwarders in the DNS settings. I believe these are the ISP DNS servers for the main office. The forwarders on the new DC are the external DNS servers from the ISP for that office.
And, Each of the other two sites DC's have an SOA record that basically points to itself, where as the new DC's SOA record points to the main DC server from the main office.
...What am I missing here?
