I have deployed a DC running Windows Server 2008 r2 and the DNS is working fine on it.
I also another DC that's running Windows Server 2003 r2 and a DNS server in another location that's running Windows Server 2000.
I would like to have the 2008 r2 DC replicate the dns to the other servers but when I go the other servers and go to DNS > Connect to computer, type in the name of the 2008 r2 DC I get the message " The Server is unavailable ... would you like to add it anyway?".
I click yes and the server shows up in the list but there is a red X with the message "cannot contact the dns server".
The other 2 servers show up in the list and everything is fine with then.
How can I resolve this problem? Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreaciated.
