I have two Xserves and each of them are running Lion.  The firewalls are wide open (for testing purposes of course).  I have a zone that I created on one and enabled allow zone transfers.  On the other I added the secondary zone and added the primary DNS server address.  I even used a command to force a resync between the two and that idd not help.  The second dns server does not know the host name of any of the clients on this dns name.  The name is rvctest.int and I created a client mail.rvctest.int.  The primary DNS server knows this when I type host mail.rvctest.int in terminal but the secondary DNS server has no clue

Could you post the entry that you have setup in the secondary dns

On the secondary server you have to add a secondary zone and point to the working system as the source for the zone.
Does the working system have a static or a dynamic IP?  Did you add an IP or a hostname to which it should connect?

Static


Did you add an IP or a hostname to which it should connect?

On the other I added the secondary zone and added the primary DNS server address (from my original message)

I've requested that this question be deleted for the following reason:

I solved the question myself and there is no good answer - it was an unexplained error.

You rechecked the setup to answer the questions I posed and discovered you did not put the correct IP for the master? OR that you did not create the correct zone type on the secondary server, i.e. you setup a stub zone?
My post lead you to recheck your issue. I think since you only included a description of your problem, I should get some points.

I can award half points?????  IF you tell me how I will.  The question grade, however, will not be good.  At no point did anything you gave me help.  I agree you made me look at the setup again but my setup is the same now as it was before - I just put everything in again.

Other than the description of what you had, there was not enough detail which required posing questions to get an idea on what was the setup. On the basis of your description and relying that it was correct, the setup should have worked.
It took my response to get you to recheck.
The same way you chose to close the question, and award points for assistance.

As you will read - there was no real solution provided - an error beyond the scope of the GUI worked its way out of the system when I deleted and re-added the DNS entry.
