Hey all.
Internal Windows 2008 R2 Forest/Domain
Server 2012 R2, DC and DNS.  AD integrated Zone

I'm trying to create a multiple level subdomain but records won't resolve.  I have Domain.com.  I need to create a record in sub2.sub1.domain.com.  Records in sub1 work fine but records in sub2 don't resolve.

I created the record at the top level by typing in the sub-levels.  I noticed there are no records at the sub1 or sub2 level except for the record I added.  New Host (A or AAAA) -> server.sub2.sub1.domain.com -> x.x.x.x

What does a sub-domain container need to pass the query another level down?
