I'm moving from one set of 10clients&1server to another set.
In the meantime I'm running all machines on one LAN.
What do I need in terms of DNS settings to make it work?
In particular, my W2012Essentials can't see its own domain.

Old:

mfk.atlas
sbs2003  at 192.168.1.2

new

ldm.local
win2012 at 192.168.1.215

I've put in a forwarder to win2012 for ldm.local in the DNS on sbs2003...
and a conditional forwarder for mfk.atlas to sbs2003 in the win2012 DNS.



ipconfig /all on w2012

"I've put in a forwarder to win2012 for ldm.local in the DNS on sbs2003...
and a conditional forwarder for mfk.atlas to sbs2003 in the win2012 DNS."

This is what you need for cross-domain DNS queries to work.

Every domain controller in the mfk.atlas  domain  should have a conditional forwarder setup for the other domain to the other  AD domain's DNS server's and  Vice-Versa.

So that each  DC can ping the  other AD domain name.

This provides access to the other domain's  DNS names, for various uses.



It does not provide actual authentication access from a user or computer one AD domain to resources in the other ----   which requires trusts, a feature that requires Windows Standard edition or higher.     Which SBS and Essentials, definitely are not.

you could set static ip addresses on the clients so they can only talk to the correct server, etc.
