DNS issues with newly created domain in forest

Hi

I have a single forest, my first domain is called corp.local, i have recently added a new domain as a root of a new tree called clients.local

They are all on the same LAN with no firewalls enabled, by IP i can ping all the DCs from new domain to old and old domain to new (i have 2 dc's in first domain and just 1 in my new domain for now)


On the DC in clients.local DNS is installed and contains the AD integrated zone for clients.local,
the Zone for corp.local is an AD integrated zone on the 2 DC's

I have noticed 2 issues.

1) When i create a conditional forwarder from clients.local to corp.local and specify the IP addresses of my DC's i get the error
"the server with this ip address is not authoritative for the required zone", in the Server FQDN colums is correctly shows the DC's FQDN

I also get the same message when i try the reverse,  so when i create a conditional forwarder on corp.local DNS server for clients.local and specify the IP of the DC in clients.local

Any ideas why this is, i thought conditional forwarders was as simple as specify the domain name and give it the IP of a DNS server.

Thanks

Is the server you are pointing to in corp.local listed as a name server for the zone.  More on that here   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc780197(v=ws.10).aspx

The forwarder will still work but it is just letting you know the DNS server is not authoritative.

Thanks

Hi Mike

Yes on the nameservers tab of the zone its listed in there as a server, i just cant understand it,

Its a simple setup with just two DC's with AD integrated DNS and both DC's listed there as nameservers on the zone

Not sure what else i can look at

Thanks
