DNS questions

Hello all and thank you for your time.

I have 2 windows 2008 that act as as the following

win 2008 r2-1- AD, DNS - (domain.local)
win 2008 R2-2 - Member, secondary DNS

I created a primary zone in R2-1 because I have an application that is access with a public domain (domain.net) and I wanted internal users to use that domain to access the app.  i created the zone and my A-record  and everything worked just fine.

I was hoping that it would get copied along to my secondary DNS server but it didnt.  I went to the properties of the zone in R2-1 and setup the zone transfer for R2-2 however I get this message "  the server with this IP is not authoritative for the required zone".

I read in a MS KB artivle that all I had to do was add R2-2 under the name servers tab under that zone and then would be able to add it as a zone transfer.  I am still receiving that message and am stuck .  can anyone help me out ?

thanks

You also have to set up the server as authoritative server (This can be achieved as far as I am concerned by right clicking on the DNS zone and selcting "authorize")

you have to go to properties of the domain and zone transfer tab to allow zone transfer and put the ip on it.

but i think it will be better just use AD zone with it will replicate itself without an issue.

Yes i did put the IP under zone transfer and i received this message when I enter the IP of the secondary DNS  "the server with this IP is not authoritative for the required zone".

in response to "but i think it will be better just use AD zone with it will replicate itself without an issue. " 

the R2-2is not A DC so does that matter ? because it has not replicated over and I created the zone yesterday.

you can have non-dc to create AD zone.

no it transfer to the secondary R2-2 DNS server .  I have an email server that is also AD and DNS but i dot use that as a secordary for network failover or load balancing.  that is the only one it replicated to.

Have you created the zone as a secondary zone on the server you're wanting it to replicate to?

jrojas1213Author Commented:
no must I do that first and then the records will replicate over?  it seemed that on my email server it created the zone and the records inside the zone.

Justin YeungCommented:
AD DNS zone will create automatically, which you don't have to modify anything on the secondary server, however non-AD dns will need to create the zone and allow zone transfer from the master. you will create the zone on the secondary dns server and click on copy from master after you set the where it is copying from
