Troubleshooting dns forwarding/conditional forwarding between multiple domains in different forests
Posted on 2010-09-16
I just set up a windows 2008 dc box as a dns server. This box is addition to a windows 2003 dc/dns box on the same subnet. The windows 2008 box is located in domainA and the windows 2003 box is located in domainB. The computers that used to log on to domainB with a static IP are now logging on to domainA via dhcp. The domains are on two different forests and I set up a conditional dns forward between the two domain controllers. When I checked the dns list on the windows 2003 machine, I noticed that the list still had computers pointing to the wrong IP address and is also listing them on the wrong domain. I then proceeded to delete the erroneous IPs and reoaded the zone; however, when I tried to ping one of the computers that is now located on domain A, it's still trying to resolve the dns using computer.domainB.com. I also selected to clear the cache to no avail.
