DNS For Chi8ld Domain

December 1, 2011 at 12:53:52
Specs: Server 2003, 4 Gig
Hi all.

I wonder if someone can shed some light on this for me... Its really been bugging me for a while.

This is all in a test environment.

I would just like to know how to configure DNS on windows server 2003 when a child domain is added to that existing domain.


I have the following:

1)Windows Server 2003 with AD (Domain = eg capecollege.org.za

2) IP address 10.1.7.62 255.255.255.192 This server is pointing to itself for dns.

3) DNS installed with AD integrated Zone capecollege.org.za

Ive added another windows server 2003 server. I have created another domain (child domain) in the above domain... This domain name is student.capecollege.org.za


1) Ip address 10.1.7.61 255.255.255.192. Dns was pointing to above server to join it to the exisitng AD (capecollege.org.za)

My question now is:

Should each domain controller be pointing to itself ??

Do I add a secondary zone (copy of each zone on the opposite server using the IP address of the relative server or can i right click on the zone on each server in Active directory and choose to replicate the specific zone to all domain controllers in the AD forest ??

What would be the correct way to go about this...

Any help will be appreciated...

Many thanks...
