I have the following 4 servers
HH1 (Windows 2003 Server) on subnet 192.168.1.xx it runs AD, DHCP and DNS (Primary Server HH1)
HH2 (Windows 2003 Server) on subnet 192.168.1.xx it runs AD and DNS (Primary Server HH2)
FILE (Windows 2003 Server) on subnet 192.168.0.xx it runs AD and DNS (Primary Server FILE)
SOL (Windows 2003 Server) on Subnet 192.168.0.xx it runs DNS (Primary Server FILE)
I have noticed that our records in domain fred.co.uk under the Forward Lookup Zones are the same for HH1, HH2 and FILE, but different for SOL.
Please forgive my ignorance I’m very new to DNS.
If I check the SOA records for each of the Servers, SOL is different again saying the data is stored in a Zone File Name, whereas the other 3 servers store their data in AD.
My question is. Are the SOL DNS entries in the Forward Lookup Zone different because they are not being replicated to? And is this because SOL is not a Domain Controller and stores its data in a Zone file and not in AD? And if this is the case how do you replicate from an AD Integrated directory to a Zone File Name?
