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 ?
