Need help with DNS configuration


A

Alvin

Hi,

I had to setup a child domain and I am having some resolution problems with
the computers in the parent domain resolving names in the child domain.
After reading MSKB 255248, I noticed that we did not follow these steps.
Now, I believe our problems may be related to the order in which we
installed DNS.

We ran DCPROMO in the child domain, and let DCPROMO install DNS then went
back and configured forwarders to the root DNS. The article says that a New
Delegation should be created first on the root DNS server. Then manually
install and configure DNS in the Child Domain before running DCPROMO. And, I
do not believe that a delegation has yet been created for my child domain on
the root DNS server. What are my options at this point, is there anyway to
correct this setup without demoting the DC and reinstalling DNS? I am not
exactly sure how our DNS has been affected by the order in which we
installed it, but we are having resolution problems from the root to the
child domain.

Thanks
Alvin

You can always create a delegation after the fact. Go ahead and do it, and
you should be fine

Hi Deji,

How many DNS servers are in the Parent Domain? How many child domains do we have? How many Child DNS servers do
we have? Do have a Windows 2000 DNS or Windows 2003 DNS servers? On your DNS server at the parent, is there a
yellow folder for the child domain already there? If this there, when you go to do the delegation wizard (right click
zone, new delegation) it will allow you to get all the way to the end and then tell you that name is already there. So you
will have to delete it and then run through the delegation wizard again.

Thanks,
