forwarding dns for separate domain
Posted on 2011-05-06
Quick question...trying to wrap my head around this but having a hard time.
We have a company that is abc.com
They have their own domain / network / active directory etc etc.
Now this company has started a second company which will be in the same building and on the same network, but they want a separate domain for this company, but they want the users to be on the same network as everyone else.
So what I did, was created a separate network for the server.
Users and servers for abc.com are on a 172.x.x.x network and the xyz.com server is on a 10.100.x.x network.
I can ping that xyz.com server by IP just fine from the 172 network and can ping from that server to the 172 network. However I can't add a computer to the domain, because it is a different domain and the DHCP servers only deliver DNS Info for the DNS servers for company abc.com.
Now, if I make the primary DNS on one of the computers the IP for the xyz.com dns/domain controller I can add that computer to the domain just fine. But adding the xyz.com dns/domain controller as a third DNS server to client computers does not work..only when it is a primary DNS.
So I guess my question is, how can I make users who sit on abc.com network be able to talk to the XYZ.com domain controller without having to manually assign a primary DNS server?
Hopefully that makes sense.
