can't create a forward lookup zone for our new 2008 domain (on a different forest) from our 2003 DNS server

We have setup a new domain (Windows 2008) that is not on the same forest as the rest of our 2003 domain. With this new domain, comes 2008 DNS server (of-course). We were able to add a forward lookup zone (2ndary) of our 2003 domain from our 2008 DNS server but we can't create a forward lookup zone for our new 2008 domain (on a different forest) from our 2003 DNS server.

There are no trust relationship establish at this point. We don't want our 2008 domain to access resources or anything in our 2003 domain.

Any ideas?

If you dont want it to access anything in your 2003 domain and vica versa, Why do you want to add it to DNS?

HI ,
it seems you need to configure Zone transfer for your new DNS server(Windows 2003 Domain) .
please check attached image

Good Luck!

Most likely the zone replication isn't setup like the above said. Check to make sure you have the zone transfer available.

Why not just forward the requests to the other domain. Go into your DNS server go to properties then Forwarder tab add the forwarder here which would be the other DNS server

To agengler11: At this time, we dont want this new domain to access resources from our current domain. We only want machines in new domain and current domain  to resolve hostnames from each domain. From the new domain (2008), we're able to resolve the hostnames from the current domain but not vice versa.

To Tareklsmail and dariusg: Thanks. I will try what you guys recommended and will keep you guys posted.

I would like to object to this post since even though the Author didn't post that the solutions provided fixed his\her issue.

Both of these solutions would have fixed the issue.
