Hi Experts,

I added two new Windows Server 2012 R2 Domain Controllers to the existing Windows Server 2008 R2 DCs. I am in the processes testing that everything is in order before decommissioning the W2K8 DCs.

On the Linux host, I removed the IPs pointing to Windows Server 2008 DNS and added the  DNS IPs of Windows Server 2012 R2 in /etc/resolv.conf . After the update, I am not able to query the records from the entire zone.  Here is the error I am getting:

command : host -v -a -l
trying ""
Host not found : 5 (REFUSED)
: Transfer failed

I am able to query the records  as soon as I update the /etc/resolv.conf with the old DNS server IPs.

Please help!
