There are 2 AD configured separately in different forest. I need users authenticated using 1 AD to be able to resolve DNS through AD 2  which are containing separate entries. AD1 and AD2 are able to resolved there DNS but not there hosts.

what happens if you ping full hsot name?

ping hostname.domain.com

?

probably your domains have no information in DNS suffix order. Create a GPO in each domain and define FQDN list for those domains.

In the first add

domain1.com (its domain)
domain2.com (remote domain)

in the second domain add

domain2.com (its domain)
domain1.com (remote domain)

Regards,
Krzysztof

iSiek, is correct. After reading your question agian it sounds like you are having problems with shortname resolution. Adding a domain suffix to your computers will fix this and using a GPO is the easiest way..

If they are not able to resolve FQDN then the conditional forwarders should have fixed that. Are you running 2003 or 2008 for your DNS servers? If 2003 you will need to add them on each server unless you add them to the application partition.
Is there a firewall between the servers?

Check Ken's suggestion and additionally type in command-line

nslookup hostnameDomainA.fqdn
nslookup hostnameDomainB.fqdn

and check if DNS server resolved those names.

The problem has been resolved . There was a need for creation of stub zone.
