For other DSf W installations, such as child and additional domain controllers, the DNS server is optional and is not enabled by default.
You can plan to introduce additional DNS servers in the Domain for the following situations: For most DNS deployments, you must have two central DNS servers that host every DNS Zone in the e Directory tree.
It lets them know “something” changed, so they should pull the new config. If you now click on the arrow by Edit and then click on Zone settings you will see the setting you just entered. (SOA = Start of Authority) is telling other DNS servers I’m the first and most important server for the domain we can edit the Email: value to a valid email address. We can leave all the other numbers as they are as they are sane values. This shows the values that are created automaticially from the information you have entered already. The mailserver also needs an MX type record so other mail servers know what hostname/IP address to connect to, when sending emails to a domain.
I did not enter anything in the name field as this MX type record is for the primary domain The mailserver also runs a web server for a blog but we do not want the URI’s going to https://mailserver.
All remote DNS servers host zones for their location (forward and reverse) and forward the unresolved queries to the two central DNS servers.
The DSf W DNS servers that are introduced at child domains must have forward list set to at least two trusted forest root domain DSf W DNS Servers.
Also, don't reload named, restart named when debugging. A few minor changes are necesary to your (isc dhcp3 server).
To learn more about DNS, feel free to visite Wiki page 5. To prevent us from to much network traffic because of DNS replication, we do not replicate the zone over the complette forest, we replicate only in this domain. After this you have to select the IP Version that will be handled by this zone. “Allow both nonsecure and secure dynamic updates” could be a entrace for Haks (DNS spoofing). Now you get a short summary and you can create the zone by clicking “Finish”. If all works fine you should see the new zone in you DNS MMC. So please select also “Store the zone in Active Directory”. In a pure Windows Server DNS environment you should select “Allow only secure dynamic updates” otherwise you should select “Do not allow dynamic updates”.
