I currently have two separate Domain control servers on two different subnets one is a Windows 2003 server and the other is a Windows 2008 Server. I can communicate between servers using IP address but not by DNS name, is there a way to create A record in DNS that will let one domain know of another server in the other domains DNS? I tried to create an A record but it keeps forcing the FQDN of its on domain not allowing me to create the host with the ad.suffix of the other domain.

Thanks

I created record in the reverse lookup zone but when I reference the DNS name resolves to the outside DNS.

If you want one domain to know the records of another domain, there are several options including
- adding the zone as secondary and allowing transfers
- setting up a delegation
- setting up a stub zone
- configuring a conditional forwarder

If you want only the single record for the other DC to be resolved, then you can do the following:
- create a new primary zone, give it the full name (FQDN) of the DC you're trying to reach
- create a new A record in that zone, leave the name blank, and point it at the IP that you use to reach the DC.
