There is something strange going on at our DNS management. DNS is located at two 2008 DCs. We have another DNS server (linux) which is allowed to receive zone transfers.
Recently, I setup a new reverse lookup zone and configured like with any zone before
x Allow zone transfers only to servers listed on the name server tab
Then I added the linux server on that very tab and I expected to see Validated: ok. Instead, I get "The server with this IP address is not authoritative for the required zone".
What does that mean? It worked with every other zone I created before and also on old zones I can delete that server and add it again with no problems. I am also able to add the second DC at any time and it shows up as validated.
I googled but did not find any clue - does anyone know what this could mean?
Apart from that, DNS shows no problems in the event logs and nslookup can find that linux server forward and reverse.
