Hi All

I have 2 Window 2003 domains 4D and VT (there is a trust between them) at the moment VT is in the forwarders list on the 4D domain controller/DNS  - is that the best way or would adding a Forward / reverse lookup be more efficient?

Many thanks

Adding a Forward / reverse lookup be more efficient for your name resolvation.

If you mention VT is in the forwarders list is also good .

The most "correct" way to do this would be to use secondary zones (forward and reverse) from both sides. Ideally you would add both domain's name servers as "NS" records in the zones and then use the (default) option of "Only the nameservers" for security on the zone transfer.

All of this is done through the zone transfers tab on the zone's properties.


Hope that helped!

Many thanks for your answers - I have implemented Forward and Reverse and I get the correct results in NSlookup now.
