Stub Zone Problems 2008 R2 DNS Servers (windows 2008 r2 dns stub zone validation error: Please try again later))

I'm trying to setup a Trust between domains but before I can do that I need to setup a Stub Zone on both DC/DNS servers on both domains.

I can setup a Stub Zone on the new DNS/DC to our old DNS/DC server but I can't setup a Stub Zone on our old network to point to the new network.  Everytime I try to setup a Stub Zone it gives me the windows 2008 r2 dns stub zone validation error: Please try again later).

I don't know what could be causing this to work on one server and not another.  Already checked the obvious firewall issue and basic TCP/IP connectivity between servers.

Okay, this is a weird one.
I'm sure you've already checked them a hundred times, but double check:
a. you aren't miskeying the IP address of the remote DNS server.
b. confirm the remote DNS server is authoritative for the zone you are attempting to configure the stub for.

If both of those check out...  granting Zone Transfer permissions shouldn't be necessary, but on the new DC, grant zone transfer to the old DC.  Like I said, that shouldn't make a difference, but... ya know... this is a weird one.

This VM, it's the old DC?  Hyper-V or VMWare?  Are the new DCs virtual too?  On the same hosts?

Do you have IPSec and DNSSec configured on the new domain?

Any 'interesting' errors in the DNS Log on either DCs?

I didn't setup IPSec or DNSSec on the new domain controller.  

On the old DC I have a Warning Event when i run the DNS BPA tool but i don't have any warnings or errors in the event log for the old DC/DNS server.

The warning on this old server is: Title:
DNS: Valid network interfaces should precede invalid interfaces in the binding order

Severity:
Warning

Date:
9/8/2010 2:23:40 PM

Category:
Configuration

Issue:
A disabled or invalid adapter precedes a valid adapter in the network interface binding order list.

Impact:
The binding order determines when network interfaces will be used to make network connections by the computer. A disabled adapter high in the binding order can degrade performance.

Resolution:
Click Start, click Network, click Network and Sharing Center, and then click Manage Network Connections to move all disabled and invalid interfaces to the bottom of the binding order list.

This is a funny error message to receive since there are no other adapters in this machine (it is a virtual machine btw).

Have you went here to check the binding order?

Click Start, click Network, click Network and Sharing Center, and then click Manage Network Connections to move all disabled and invalid interfaces to the bottom of the binding order list.

Make sure that your primary NIC is listed first.

There is only 1 network connection under the standard options as well as the Binding options.

I have 3 old DCs that all do this when trying to connect to the new DC.

Everything is virtualized using VMware.

I got it working by checking the allow Zone Transfers box and had to select the "Allow Zone Transfers" and select the option box "To Any Server".  If I tried to isolate this by Hostname, FQDN or IP address it errored out.

Can you see why I'm getting rid of the old domain?
