No DNS forward zone in a new DC
Posted on 2011-09-30
We have an old Windows Server 2003 SP2 DC (192.168.100.100). I have recently added a new Windows 2008 R2 SP1 DC (192.168.100.103).
I am having some errors when using NetDiag in 2003 like:
[WARNING] The DNS entries for this DC are not registered correctly on DNS server '192.168.100.103'. Please wait for 30 minutes for DNS server replication.
Trust relationship test. . . . . . : Failed
[FATAL] Secure channel to domain 'RESALAGROUP' is broken. [ERROR_NO_LOGON_SERVERS]
I have opened DNS console in the 2008 server, and I found that there are no forward zones, only two reverse zones are available there.
Shall I add a forward zone manually in order to solve this? If yes, which kind of forward zones shall I select? And how to replicate DNS entries from the old server?
