I am having an issue with conditional DNS forwarding on server 03.
We have two domain we are looking to create a trust between. One is Server 08r2 DCs on functional level 08r2. The other consists of Server 03 DCs running in 2000 native.
We created conditional forwarders on the DNS servers for both domains. The ones in the 2008r2 environment work great. They are not however working on the server 2003 DCs. I then noticed that Server 08r2 servers in the older domain can resolve names from the new domain just fine. So the issue seems to be with just server 03. And in this case, it is a crucial one as the DCs are the ones we need to resolve the FQDNs so we can create the trust. :)
