Adding a Secondary Zone


D

I have a Server2003, SP1 network, three sites, each with a DC running DNS.
Site A, Server A, Site B with Server B and Site C with Server C. Site A was
setup first and the DC is the FSMO. A single DNS zone with one domain, I
only have about 115 XP, SP2 workstations in the three sites. I experience
no replications problems, DFS works great, no errors in the event logs,
replication works with no problems. Changes to DNS on any one server get
replicated to the other two servers.

The FSMO has a Reverse Lookup zone: 192.in-addr.arpa. Under that is the
folder : 168, then under that three subfolders, one for each site:
151,160,170.

The DNS mmc does not have the 192.in-addr.arpa zone under the other two
domain controllers, just the three default zones. When I attempted to
manually add the additional zone I typed in 192.168.151, the 0 being grayed
out, and ended up with a Reverse Zone 192.168.151.in-addr-arpa not
192.in-addr.arpa. How do I install this properly so that the Reverse zones
are setup correctly and replicate among the three DNS servers?

Delete the 192.in-addr.arpa zone, this is a Public subnet. Then create a
zone 168.192.in-addr.arpa. (192.168.x.x Subnet), Make it AD integrated
replicated to the ForestDNSzones.
