DNS for 2 domains...


S

SanDann

I have 2 seperate companies that are merging together. 2 locations, 2
domains.

Server1.local - Windows 2000 SP4
Server2.com - 2003 Server SP1

I have setup a VPN between the 2 with the routers, and can ping back
and forth, and can communicate via IP.

I would like to setup DNS so it recognises server1.local by name from
the server2 site.

I know, basic DNS but it is not my strong suit.

Can you help?

Put a Secondary (or equivalent*) for each zone on the
OTHER server. Allow zone transfers from the Master
side so that the Secondary will be able to transfer the
zone.


(Win2003 has more choices including Conditional Forwarding
and Stubs zones but "cross secondaries" work with ANY
DNS server or version.)

Should I put the secondary in the forward or reverse lookup?

You put a Secondary for a forward lookup zone
(zone has to EXIST to have a secondary) in the
Forward zones (only place you really can put such
a named zone) and you put one for a Reverse in
reverse zones (again, the only place it works.)

You might conceivably want to be secondary for one
(or more) of EACH type of zone on each server (set).
