DNS-server zone transfer

Hi everyone,

I am setting up a whole server environment for a project for school. I was almost done, but had some problems with removed servers and LDAP so the teacher advised me to start all over again.. Because there was a problem with the connection between the PDC and ADC their trust en replication, I wanted to make sure that I get these steps right in the new environment..

The set-up:

GREEN ZONE
 -PDC
 -ADC
 -Windows 7 client

ORANGE ZONE
 -mail & webserver
 -sharepoint-server

There is a windows 2008 server with TMG installed to connect the green with the orange zone.

Now, I just installed the green zone (Clean windows 2008 without TMG software, ADC and PDC)
I have set-up a domain called svencelis.be and every PC is a member of this domain.


On each PC I have set-up a DNS-server with a forward lookup zone "svencelis.be" which transfers the zones to each of these PC's.
But when I go take a look in the DNS-server on the TMG, there are no records for the PDC and ADC. Is this normal?

Because when I had my old set-up I could ping the PDC from my mailserver in my orange zone, but couldn't join the domain from my orange zone.. Are these 2 things related to each other?

Thanks in advance! primary server DNSadditional.png

Thanks for the reply, I did'nt applied the hotfix, but it pointed me to another missing point in my configuration (I guess)

In this article (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc737678%28WS.10%29.aspx) you can find this specific line:

# The source domain controller must have successfully registered the following resource records:

    * GUID-based CNAME resource record in the DNS zone _msdcs.ForestRootDNSDomainName


On my PDC, I can't find this CNAME record and when I want to add one, I get the message that you can see in the printscreens..

Would this be solved if I run the hotfix? I also have deleted the A-record in the zone "svencelis.be" but still the same error-message

I can ping from clients in my DMZ to LAN, so guess it was correct all along. Now I can also place mailserver in DMZ, thanks for contributing!
