DNS / Domain Trust Question
Posted on 2014-02-26
Hoping someone might be able to help me out with a couple of questions regarding and DNS issue I'm having.
Our company was bought out by another and we've just had our MPLS networks joined. Therefore I can ping their subnets and they can ping ours.
Our domain forest is 'company1.local' and theirs is 'company2.com.au'
I've created a conditional forwarder for 'company2.com.au' and added their 3 AD DNS servers.
I also need to create a 2-way trust between the AD forests and that works up until the point where I need a domain admin account for their domain (I cant go further as they gave there systems admin the week off)
Now we can log into their terminal servers if we use the IP of the server, however we dont have the IP for most of them, only the names.
The issue is, if try to RDP into say 'sfg-ts-001' or even try to ping that name it wont resolve.
If I use 'sfg-ts-001.company2.com.au' I can ping and RDP to it fine.
My question is what step did I miss for the reverse DNS to work between the sites so I can just use the server name instead of its full FQDN? Or will this not work properly till the 2way trust has been configured?
