DNS name resolution between sites

Microsoft Windows 7 professional 64-bit
August 16, 2011 at 15:34:49
Specs: Windows 2008 R2, 4ghz/12gb
We have a domain acme.local and another trusted domain acmenorth.com. Users in the Main office site (Atlanta) cannot ping an address drlinux.acmenorth.com from the acme.local domain. It resolves to an internet IP address. However, users in the dr site can ping the hostname and it resolves to the correct IP.

Thank you,

Leto the just

Doesn't ping/resolve for me to an internet ip.
that would indicate a bad dns entry for acme.local domain

Those weren't the actual hostnames. I used acme as a pseudo name. These are internal records.

Perhaps you need to configure secondary zones on each of the DNS servers for the zone hosted by the other one? That's what I used to do in a similar situation.

Are you pinging by the fully qualified name? I'm not sure I'd make a secondary zone, but you might look into creating a GlobalName zone. Do a search on Bing.com, for GlobalName zones to get more info
