DNS is one thing i'm just not ever going to get a grasp of...
If you have the zone ABC.com to which there is 123.ABC.com, for 123.ABC.com to resolve records in ABC.com something has to be done i..e stub zone, delegation..etc correct?
This is my my sticking point; If you have another setup with ABC.com, which also has Wales.abc.com. England.abc.com, Sales.Wales.abc.com, and sales.England.abc.com
Server config = Server1 hosting secondary zones for abc.com, wales.abc.com and england.abc.com
Server2 hosts secondary zone for sales.wales.abc.com
server3 hosts secondary zone for sales.england.abc.com
there are no delegate records in abc.com, wales.abc.com or engalnd.abc.com and the other servers in sales.wales.abc.com only use server2 as the DNS server
Where I get lost is, when configuring forwarding for sales.wales.abc.com you only forward to wales.abc.com, engalnd.abc.com and sales.england.abc.com. Why wouldn't abc.com need forwarding to? How would it resolve names in there?
Been told "To configure the forest with forwarding makes no sense. It's not practical. To who would forwarding occur".....I dont get it. My argument was it's forwarding to abc.com so it can resolve names in there
Please can someone explain
