I have 2003 and 2008 server in the domain. The 2008 server is able to connect to the 2003 DNS server and display it's stats in the DNS MMC.

However, the 2003 server keeps telling me that it is unable to reach the DNS server when I try to connect to the 2008 server via the 2003 DNS Console.

I can ping it fine.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

This is normal, 2008 R2 introduced a more secure DNS Management authentication system to prevent "Man in the middle DNS attacks" that had been exploited in earlier versions of Windows.

Solution

The correct way to approach this problem is to accept it, your 2008 R2 Servers are more secure, if you need to manage them do so from the DNS management console on the 2008 R2 server itself. Or install the RSAT tools on a client machine.

You can also change the way it works so you can see and manage it from an older version of Windows. (Note: Be advised Microsoft recommend you do not do this, they turned this on for a reason).

On Server 2008 open CMD as admin and run:

dnscmd.exe /Config /RpcProtocol 7
dnscmd.exe /Config /RpcAuthLevel 0
net stop "DNS Server"
net start "DNS Server"

oh, well i just wanted to make sure i had a fault tolerant DNS in case my 2008 server went down, which it did, the users workstations will still be able to resolve DNS and get out to the internet.

Thanks.
