dns issue

kurajesh asked
I have win 2008 DC and we are facing a dns issue.

how can we create NS records to point  site eg: "webdev.skyarabia.com" point to ns4.webdev.skyarabia.com
Watch Question

that wont work -
if the ns for webdev.skyarabia.com points to ns4.webdev.skyarabia.com then in order to find the ns IT WOULD NEED TO LOOKUP webdev.skyarabia.com - which it cant do without getting to the NS.

but you can put additional A records or mx records etc in your skyarabia.com domain without needing to make a NS for webdev.skyarabia.com

nslookup resolves skynews.com but when anyone outside from our network try to ns.webdev.skynews.com he gets error message

Your original question was about skyarabia.com, but now you mention skynews.com ?  Which one is it?
you can also create alias cname record for the webdev.skyarabia.com that would also point to ns4.webdev.skyarabia.com resolving the same ip address.
