Secondary DNS and Active directory Domains

Hi All

I have 2 active directory domains, linked by a trust.  The 2 domains have their own DNS within their own active directory.  The Domain V is added a secondary zone in Domain A's DNS and vice versa.  The problem is  that there are 3 DC's in Domain A and only one has the Domain Z DNS entry - how do I get all the DC's to have the Domain Z DNS entries?  Do I have to add the secondary zone manually to each DC?

Thanks in advance.

Add the Zone to the primary DC.  It should replicate to the others (2nd and 3rd etc) if configured as such for DNS.

I think you need to do this from your DHCP Server -> Server Options -> add DNS Server Option and specify the DNS IPs. DHCP will take care of assigning the right DNS IPs .

Hi NRhode - I added it but as a secondary it doesn't give the option of being stored in the AD so no replication - if I change it to Primary or stub it gives the option of being stored in AD but stub doesn't show all the server names only the DNS servers in Domain Z.

Hi Dr-Hussain - we do not use DHCP for servers so that would not work.

Thanks

At the moment I have manually copied the secondary zone to each DC and it solved my initial problem but surely there must be a better way?
