Hello,

We currently have one Forward Lookup zone test.com. We recently changed our domain name to test2.com, but we have our mx records and everything pointing to both now, which is fine. We are going to have it like that for a while. Can i add an additional flookupzone without deleteing the one we currently have in our dns? I noticed that when i rightclick on Forward lookup zones i can click on New Zone and then i can choose to an another primary zone. My question is, can i use this opetion two have 2 primary forward lookup zones?

Thank you

Have you changed the domain name of your Active Directory or have you change the domain name of your email domain only?

If only email domain, then you shouldn't need to create an internal zone. This is assuming that your DNS forwarders are pointing to an external DNS server that can provide the DNS service. Alternatively, you may wish to create an split zone for test2.com where some records only exists internally and some externally at the ISP.

If you've changed you AD domain name then you'll need to create the new zone.
